All the statistical highlights from India and Australian victories against New Zealand and Bangladesh respectively:
1 – Amelia Kerr became the first player with the treble of 30+ runs, 2+ wickets and 2+ catches in a Women’s T20 World Cup match. She scored an unbeaten 19-ball 34 after registering figures of 2/21 and claiming two catches. Only Daren Sammy (vs IRE, 2010) and Shakib Al Hasan (vs AUS, 2016) have achieved this treble during Men’s T20 World Cup matches.
2 – Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney are only the 2nd opening pair in Women’s cricket to score 80+ runs in a T20I inning. Y Anggraeni (112) and K Winda Prastini (89*) of Indonesia Women recorded this instance in last year’s December against the Philippines.
3 – India Women’s 3-run is their joint narrowest win in terms of runs in the T20I format. They also won the 2012 T20I against West Indies by three runs. India’s previous shortest win in the Women’s T20 CWC was by 6 runs against Pakistan in 2014. This is also the joint shortest defeat in the Women’s T20 CWC for New Zealand. They also lost the 2010 edition final by 3 runs against Australia.
22 – Number of dismissals for Alyssa Healy in the T20 CWCs; the most number of dismissals for any keeper in Women’s T20 World Cup. She went past Sarah Taylor and Rachel Priest who affected 20 dismissals each. Sarah last played in 2016 while Priest didn’t affect any dismissals in the morning match. Taniya Bhatia is behind the three players with 19 dismissals across only 8 matches.
50 – The wicket of Suzie Bates was the 50th for Deepti Sharma in the T20I format. She is now only the 4th Indian with 50 T20I wickets in Women’s cricket. The game on Thursday was her 100th International appearance.
79 – Ellyse Perry has been part of 79 wins in T20I cricket; the most by any player in T20Is across Men’s and Women’s cricket. Perry went past Shoaib Malik and Danielle Wyatt who were part of 78 T20I wins apiece. Wyatt and Perry were tied on 77 wins before the tournament. Australia won two matches while England won only one in the present tournament thus far.
86 – Australia’s 86-run win is the 5th biggest in terms of runs in Women’s T20 CWC. This is also the 2nd biggest win for Australia Women in the T20 World Cup behind the 94-run victory against Pakistan in 2014.
151 – The 151-run partnership between Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney is now the highest partnership for Australia Women for any wicket in T20I cricket. The previous highest is 147* by Karen Rolton and Alex Blackwell for the 4th wicket against England Women during their first-ever T20I appearance in 2005.
189/1 – Australia’s total of 189/1 is now the 3rd highest total by any team in the Women’s T20 CWC. India’s 194/5 against New Zealand in 2018 and Australia’s 191/4 against Ireland in 2014 are the only totals higher than Australia’s 189/1 in the history of the tournament.
1232 – The 1232 partnership runs between Mooney and Healy are the most in Women’s T20Is for any opening pair. They went past Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine’s tally of 1095 partnership runs in this format for the first wicket.
