On a historic night at Hagley Oval in Christchurch, Australia thumped England by 71 runs to win the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup for the seventh time, the most by any team in history.
The four times champion England, were runners up this time as they failed to defend the title.
Their previous six titles had come in 1978, 1982, 1988, 1997, 2005, 2013.
While it is Australia’s seventh silverware, it is fifth time (2022, 2005, 1997, 1982 and 1978) they have lifted the trophy staying undefeated throughout the tournament.
In one-day internationals, Australia has been completely dominant. They have won 38 of their 39 matches since the start of 2018 and only lost to India in Mackay, Queensland last year.
In addition to seven World Cups, Australia have also won the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup on five occasions (2010, 2012, 2014, 2018 and 2020).
