Women's World Cup Matches Continued
New Zealand VS. England
  • England’s one-wicket victory is only the second in the history of the World Cup. England were also involved in the other, against Sri Lanka, but were on the losing side on that occasion in 2012-13 in Mumbai.
West Indies VS. Pakistan
  • Nida Dar’s 4 for 10 is Pakistan’s best bowling in the World Cup, overtaking Nashra Sandhu’s 4 for 26 against India at Derby in 2017.
South Africa VS. Australia
  • Laura Woolvardt’s 90 is the fifth-highest score in the World Cup in a losing cause against Australia.

  • Meg Lanning’s unbeaten 135 is the second-highest, second innings of a match score in the World Cup. Meg has made three of the top four such scores in the competition in this category.
India VS. Bangladesh

  • Based on an innings of 30 or more, Mignon du Preez’s 86.36% of team runs scored whilst in is the second highest in the World Cup. Only Ashleigh Gardner, with 87.27% of Australia’s runs against New Zealand whilst she was in, in the current tournament is higher.
England VS. Bangladesh
  • Sophia Dunkley’s 67 is the highest score by a player batting at number 6 for England in the World Cup. The previous highest was Jane Smit’s unbeaten 63 against Sri Lanka at Lincoln in 2000.
