Australia Beats England to Win Women's Cricket World Cup

They squared off in the final match, and Australia managed to come out victorious, winning their seventh title in this tournament. Australia's managed to secure a 71-run win on Sunday, defeating defending champions England. Alyssa Healy is one of the players responsible for Australia’s triumph in the final – she scored 170 runs in the match, the highest individual score by a cricketer of any gender in the World Cup final. She finished the competition with a total of 509 runs and was named the Player of the Tournament. Meg Lanning, the captain of the Australian team, said she’s very pleased by the result because it’s not an overnight success, but something they’ve been working towards for a very long time. “This tournament has been a long time coming - it has been in the back of our minds and there are no doubts we wanted this trophy in our cabinet. It has been an amazing effort over a number of years and to finish it off like this is amazing," said Lanning. The 2022 Women's Cricket World Cup took place between March 4 and April 3 in Christchurch, New Zealand.
