All the statistical highlights from Australia Women’s series whitewash against the Sri Lanka Women:

Australia Women equal their own record:

18 – Australia Women now has won each of the 18 ODI matches they played since the start of 2018. This is the longest winning streak for any team in Women’s ODI cricket. The Australia Women broke their own record which they held by winning 17 consecutive ODIs between 1997 and 1999.

12 – Australia Women won all the 12 ODI matches they played at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane which hosted all the three matches of this series. No other team across Men’s and Women’s cricket has won more the eight matches without losing one at a venue in the ODI format.

The 12 consecutive wins are also the most for a team in Women’s ODI cricket at a particular venue. New Zealand won each of their last 9 ODIs at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval in Lincoln; the 2nd best winning streak for any team in Women’s ODI cricket at a venue.

Rare achievement for Atapattu:

1 – Chamari Atapattu became the first player to score two International centuries in Australia against the Australia Women’s team. She is also only the 2nd visiting player with two centuries in Australia in Women’s International cricket. Suzie Bates also has two tons in Australia; both in ODI format but one of them came against Pakistan in the 2009 Women’s CWC.

3 – Chamari has struck three centuries in International cricket against Australia; the joint-most International tons against the Aussies in Women’s cricket. Janette Brittin, Claire Taylor, and Suzie Bates are the other three players with three centuries against the Australia Women.

The lone performer for Sri Lanka Women:

5 – Chamari Atapattu has scored all the five ODI centuries scored for Sri Lanka Women thus far. The top seven individual ODI scores for Sri Lanka Women are recorded by Chamari only. She also scored the lone T20I hundred scored by a Sri Lankan Women.

Lanning @ 2000:

2007 – Meg Lanning completed 2000 runs in the ODI format while chasing. She is the 4th woman with 2000 runs in ODI chases. Lanning needed only 42 innings for this milestone which are the fewest among the four players. Lanning scored 1962 runs in successful ODI chases; the most by any player in Women’s cricket.

Healy only behind Sarah:

3 – Alyssa Healy now has three centuries in ODI cricket as wicketkeeper; the 2nd most by any keeper in Women’s ODI cricket. Sarah Taylor has struck as many as six ODI tons as keeper.

Back to back century stands:

2012 – The last instance of Australia Women having century opening partnerships in ODI cricket was back in 2012. Meg Lanning shared partnerships of 131 and 146 with Racheal Haynes and Alyssa Healy respectively. The century partnership in the previous ODI was the first 100-run opening stand for Australia Women in 17 ODIs.
