ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020: List of major records
Australia won a record-extending fifth ICC Women's T20 World Cup title after defeating India in the final at the MCG on Sunday. Australia scored 184/4 in 20 overs and then folded India Women for a paltry 99. We had several players who made a mark in the tournament. They stood tall and scripted major records. Here we look at the same.
Alyssa Healy amasses these records in the 2020 edition
Australia's wicket-keeper batswoman Healy scripted the second-highest individual score in the ICC Women's T20 World Cup final (75). The opener accounted for the second-most runs in the tournament. She finished with 236 runs from six matches. On Sunday, she registered her fifth fifty in the history of ICC World T20. She also went past 750 runs in the ICC Women's T2o World Cup (752).
Money breaks Lanning's record for most runs in an edition
Beth Mooney scored the most runs in a single edition of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup. She ended the 2020 edition of the tournament with 259 runs and went past Meg Lanning's 257 in 2014. Mooney and Healy's 115-run stand is the sixth-highest for the first wicket in ICC Women's T20 World Cup. She also scored the most runs in a final (78*).
Schutt ends up with most wickets in this edition
Megan Schutt (4/18) is the joint seventh-highest wicket-taker in Women's T20Is. Schutt finished with 13 wickets in this edition. Her feat is also the joint-best in Women's World T20 history. Schutt also registered her best bowling figures in the format and has 30 WT20 scalps.
SA Women smash record, Knight joins an elite list
South Africa Women scripted the record for the highest World T20 total (195/3) against Thailand in a group stage encounter. They overcame India's 194/5 against the White Ferns in 2018. England's Heather Knight joined an illustrious list of centurions in the Women's T20 World Cup. She also became the first Englishwoman to score a century in the World T20.
