Women's World Cup Semi-Finals & Final
Australia VS. West Indies
  • The first wicket partnership of 216 between Rachael Haynes and Alyssa Healy is the highest for any wicket in the World Cup by a team which lost the toss and was inserted. The previous highest was shared between Helen Knight and Nat Sciver (England vs. Pakistan at Leicester in 2017) and Carole Hodges and Helen Plimmer (England vs. Ireland at Reading in 1993), both of 213 for the third wicket.
  • Australia's 305 for 3 is the highest semi-final total surpassing India's 281 for 4 against them at Derby in 2017.
  • Healy's 129 is only the second century by a wicket-keeper in the World Cup. Sarah Taylor scored 147 for England against South Africa at Bristol in 2017.

England VS. South Africa
  • England's 293 for 8 is their fourth-highest World Cup total after being inserted.
  • Sophie Ecclestone's figures of 6 for 36 are England's best in the World Cup, overtaking Anya Shrubsole's 6 for 46 against India in the 2017 final.
  • Sophie's analysis is also the best in any World Cup semi-final, bettering Rachel Pullar's 4 for 39 for New Zealand against India at Potchefstroom in 2005.
  • Danni Wyatt's 129 is England's highest score in a World Cup semi-final. Both Danni and Sophia Dunkley (60) broke the previous best of Sarah Taylor's 54, also against South Africa, at Bristol in 2017.
  • England's five-match winning streak is their second best in the World Cup behind only their eight in the 2017 edition.
  • Despite her duck, Laura Woolvaardt finished the tournament with a South African World Cup competition record of 433 runs (average 54.13) beating her own record of 2017 (324 runs, average 64.80).

Congratulations to Australia on their fine performances throughout the tournament which ultimately resulted in a convincing victory in the final, and a trophy achieved with no defeats during the tournament. Their victory, which secured their seventh World Cup, is their sixth from seven where a final has been contested, their only blemish being a 4-run defeat to New Zealand in 2000. The first two World Cups were decided on points: England beat Australia in 1973, and Australia reversed this result in a shortened version in 1977.

Below are some highlights from the 2022 final between Australia and England who, after a poor start to the competition, recovered well to reach the final.
  • Alyssa Healy's 170 made her the second player to score a century in a World Cup final. The other was another Australian player, Karen Rolton, in 2005 against India before Natalie Sciver's unbeaten 148 in this final's second innings.
  • Alyssa's 170 is significantly the highest individual score in a World Cup final, Rolton's century above realising 107 not out before Sciver's 148*.
  • Alyssa also became the first player in the World Cup to score a century in both a semi-final and final (and not necessarily in the same tournament).
  • Alyssa's score is the highest by a wicket-keeper in the World Cup, and indeed any ODI. She became the first wicket-keeper to record two World Cup centuries.
  • Alyssa's boundary count (24 fours) is comfortably the highest by a player in a World Cup final. Sciver's score included 15 fours and one six whilst Rolton's contained 11 fours.
  • Australia 356 for 5 is the highest score in a World Cup final, surpassing their 259 for 7 at Mumbai against West Indies in 2013 (and England's 285 later).
  • The Australian total is also the fourth highest in any World Cup match after losing the toss and being inserted.
  • The first and second wicket partnerships between Healy and Rachael Haynes, and then Beth Mooney are the highest in a final for any wicket. The first wicket realised 160, the second 156. The previous highest stand in a final was 139 between Rolton and Lisa Sthalekar for Australia against India at Centurion Park in 2005.
  • The 2022 final was the first where not one maiden over was bowled.
  • For the third time in their World Cup history, four England bowlers conceded 50 or more runs apiece in the same innings. All occasions have been in the 2022 World Cup. Of the ten occasions that this is happened in the World Cup, England have inflicted four of these upon their opponents. This performance is, though, the first occasion in which the four England bowlers have conceded more than 60 runs apiece in the same innings.
  • Prior to this tournament's final, West Indian player Anisa Mohammed (10-0-61-1) held the most expensive bowling figures in a final. Five players in this final have now replaced Mohammed's figures: Sophie Ecclestone (10-0-71-1); Katherine Brunt (10-0-69-0); Sciver and Kate Cross (both 8-0-65-0) and Alana King (10-0-64-3).
  • Sciver's unbeaten 148 is the first century and thereby highest score by a player in the World Cup on a losing side in the knockout stages (quarter-, semi- and finals). The previous highest was Belinda Clark's 91 for Australia against New Zealand at Lincoln in the 2000 final.
  • Natalie became the first player to score two centuries against Australia at the World Cup. Both of her innings were undefeated which gives her a career record and average of 286 against them, the most by any player overtaking India's Harmanpreet Kaur (270).
  • Natalie's score is the highest by an England player in a losing cause against any country in an ODI.
  • England's 285 is the second time in the World Cup that the top scorer has made a century and no other player has managed 30. The match between Sri Lanka and Australia at Bristol in 2017 was the other.
  • At 5.48 times greater, Natalie's innings shows the biggest discrepancy between a side's top and second-highest scorer in a World Cup final innings.
  • The match aggregate of 641 runs for 15 wickets is considerably the highest final match aggregate in the World Cup surpassing the 447 for 17 wickets between England and India at Lord's in 2017. It is also the second-highest in any World Cup match behind only the 678 for 14 wickets between England and South Africa at Bristol in 2017.
  • The match provided the first instance of a side winning the final after losing the toss and being inserted.
  • The match saw the first occasion of a century being scored on both sides in a final.
  • The partnership of 65 between Sciver and Charlie Dean for England's ninth wicket is a record for that wicket in any World Cup final.
  • Anya Shrubsole also gave away 46 runs in the 2017 World Cup final, but with three more wickets.

Tournament Records
  • Healy's 509 runs in the 2022 World Cup is the most by any player. Close behind, fellow opener, Rachael Haynes (497), went into second place, both overtaking Debbie Hockley's 456 runs (average 76) for New Zealand in 1997.
  • Sciver's tournament aggregate of 436 runs (average 72.67) is a record for England in the World Cup, surpassing team-mate Tammy Beaumont's 2017 record of 410 (average 45.56).
  • Ecclestone's performance of 21 wickets (average 15.62) is the third-highest by any team in a World Cup tournament, and the best by an England player.
  • Australia finished the tournament with an impressive record of 29 World Cup wins from 31 matches played in New Zealand. They have lost only once, and tied another.
