4/18 – Megan Schutt’s figures were the best taken in a Women’s T20 World Cup final and the joint best figures of her international career in all formats.

4/16 – In her last international match, Shashikala Siriwardene took the best figures of the tournament so far.  4/16 are the best figures by a Sri Lankan at a Women’s T20 World Cup and the 2nd best for Sri Lanka in any women’s T20I, beaten only by Siriwardene’s own 4/9 against Pakistan in 2018.

199 – In a seventeen year career, Siriwardene played 199 matches for Sri Lanka in all formats, the most by any woman.  Siriwardene finishes as her nations’ top wicket taker in both ODIs (124) and T20Is (77) and 2nd highest run scorer in both formats.

4 – Siriwardene is one of just four women to have both scored 1,000 runs & taken 100 wickets in ODIs, and also scored 1,000 runs & taken 50 wickets in T20Is.  The others are Ellyse Perry, Stafanie Taylor and Dane van Niekerk.

50 – On her 20th birthday, Nahida Akter became the youngest woman to take 50 T20I wickets, breaking a record which Sophie Ecclestone had set just the day before.  The record could be broken for  a third time during this World Cup.  India’s Radha Yadav is 19 years old and has 48 T20I wickets heading into the knockout stages.

60 – Beth Mooney’s innings was Australia’s highest score against New Zealand at a women’s T20 World Cup

3 – Megan Schutt is the 2nd Australian to take 7+ wickets at three different Women’s T20 World Cups.  The other is Ellyse Perry who has taken part in all seven editions, compared with just the three tournaments in 2016-20 for Schutt.

2 – Diana Baig took the wickets of Lizelle Lee for 4 and Dane van Niekerk for 3, making this the first Women’s T20 World Cup match in which Pakistan have dismissed both opposition openers for single figure scores.

5 – Shabnim Ismail is the 4th bowler and first South African to take 5+ wickets at four different Women’s T20 World Cups.  The others are Ellyse Perry, Any Shrubsole and Stafanie Taylor.

England 143/5 (20.0) beat West Indies 91 (17.1) by 46 runs
Highlights


5 – England qualified for the semi-final stage for the fifth Women’s T20 World Cup in succession.  This match also halted West Indies’ run of consecutive semi-finals appearances at five.  West Indies last failed to make the knock-out stages during the inaugural edition in 2009.

50 – At 20 years 300 days, Sophie Ecclestone (3.1-1-7-3) became the youngest woman to take 50 T20 international wickets, and the 3rd fastest to that mark in terms of innings bowled (34).

69.2% – Ecclestone currently has by far the highest dot ball percentage of any bowler to have delivered more than one over during this tournament.  Ellyse Perry is in 2nd place with 61.6%.  The average dot ball percentage at Australia 2020 is 45.3%.

3 – Natalie Sciver became the 2nd woman to score three 50+ scores at a Women’s T20 World Cup.  The first was Meg Lanning, who made three fifties during the 2016 edition in India.

176.92 – Amy Jones, batting at #6 for the first time since 2014, scored 23* (13), which was the highest SR innings of 10+ balls in her T20I career.

6 – Ecclestone (3), Glenn (2) and Villiers’ (1) wickets made this the first time that England women’s spinners had taken six wickets in a women’s T20I in Australia.

Women’s T20 World Cup match 13
Junction Oval, Melbourne
New Zealand 91 (18.2) beat Bangladesh 74 (19.5) by 17 runs
Highlights


8/25 – New Zealand’s collapse was their biggest from the fall of the 3rd wicket in a T20I and the 2nd biggest such collapse by any side at a Women’s T20 World Cup (India’s semi-final capitulation of 8/23 against England in 2018 is the biggest).  Every previous collapse of worse than 8/50 suffered by the White Ferns had been inflicted on them by England or Australia.

91 – New Zealand’s eventual total was the lowest successfully defended at a Women’s T20 World Cup.  The lowest had been Sri Lanka’s 97/7 against Bangladesh in 2018.  Bangladesh were bowled out for 72 on that occasion.

4/18 – Ritu Moni’s fgures were Bangladesh’s first 4-fer at a Women’s T20 World Cup and the best figures ever recorded against New Zealand at the tournament.  Moni’s figures are also currently the best at the Australia 2020 edition.

3 – This was the 12th time Leigh Kasperek has taken 3+ wickets in a T20I innings.  Only Anya Shrubsole (14 in 74 innings) and Shabnim Ismail (13 in 89 innings) have taken more during their T20 careers, though they have both played significantly more innings than Kasperek, who has taken 3-fer in almost a third of her 39 career innings.

13.1 – Among bowlers to have taken 25+ wickets, Kasperek has the best career strike rate in women’s T20 internationals.

5 – Bangladesh have been bowled out for under 100 the joint most times in Women’s T20 World Cup history.  The other side at the top of the list is Pakistan, though they have played seven editions of the tournament compared with Bangladesh’s four.


Women’s T20 World Cup match 12
Junction Oval, Melbourne
India 116/3 (14.4) beat Sri Lanka 113/9 (20.0) by 7 wickets
Highlights


4/4 – For the second time in their history, and the second time in succession, India have gone unbeaten during the group stage of the Women’s T20 World Cup.  Since the tournament expanded to ten sides in 2014, the eventual winner has never won all of their group matches.

161 – Shafali Verma has scored the most runs by a teenager at a Women’s T20 World Cup, beating Hayley Matthews’ 153 for West indies in 2016.  Verma’s SR of 161.00 is currently the highest by a player who has scores 125 runs during  a Women’s T20 World Cup.

4 – Verma is the first teenage to make four scores of 25+ runs at a single edition of the Women’s T20 World Cup.

25 – Kavisha Dilhari’s 25* was the equal highest score made by a #9 in women’s T20 internationals.

49 – Udeshika Prabodhani, who has stated this will be her last World Cup, is one wicket away from becoming the first left-arm pace bowler to take 50 women’s T20 international wickets.

Highlights


195/3 – South Africa posted the highest total in Women’s T20 World Cup history, improving on the previous record (India against New Zealand at Providence, Guyana in 2018) by one run.  The Proteas’ margin of victory (113 runs) was also a new tournament record.

101 – Lizelle Lee became South Africa’s first centurion at a Women’s T20 World Cup, and the first opener in tournament history to score a hundred.  Australia 2020 is the first edition of the tournament to feature two centuries.

35 – Lee and Sune Luus both reached their half-centuries off 35 balls, the fastest fifties for South Africa at a Women’s T20 World Cup.  The previous best was Mignon du Preez’s 42-ball fifty against Australia in 2010.

3 – Lee & Luus shared their 3rd 100+ partnership in T20Is.  Only Suzie Bates & Sophie Devine have made more century partnerships in women’s T20Is.  Lee & Luus’ 131 stand was a 2nd wicket record for both South Africa and the tournament as a whole.

7 – South Africa’s seven sixes were the 4th most hit in a Women’s T20 World Cup innings, and the joint most hit in any women’s T20I innings in Australia.

3/8 – Shabnim Ismail’s fiery innings of pace bowling returned South Africa’s 3rd best figures in a Women’s T20 World Cup match.  Ismail has taken the most 3+ wicket hauls (7) in tournament history.

1.00 – Nonkululeko Mlaba’s 4-1-4-1 was the joint most economical 4.0 overs bowled in a Women’s T20 World Cup, and the most economical 4.0 over innings ever delivered in a women’s T20I in Australia.

5 – Heather Knight made her fifth 50+ score in as many innings at Manuka Oval.  No woman has made more T20I runs at a single venue than Knight has at Manuka (386).
Knight has now hit more sixes at this edition of the tournament alone (5) than any other England player had hit in their entire Women’s T20 World Cup career (Charlotte Edwards, Tammy Beaumont and Laura Marsh had all hit 4).

3/15 – Sarah Glenn took the best women’s T20I figures by an English spinner in Australia, beating her own 3/18 against Australia in the tri-series on 1st February this year.  Remarkably, this month alone Glenn and Sophie Ecclestone (whose 2/12 against Pakistan were the 3rd best such figures) between them have recorded top six best performances on that list.  The previous best had been Holly Colvin’s 2/21 at Adelaide in 2011.

41 – Aliya Riaz’s innings was the highest score by a #7 at a Women’s T20 World Cup, and the third highest by a #7 in any women’s T20I match.

Highlights


133/8 –India’s score at Junction Oval was the lowest 1st innings total successfully defended in women’s T20Is against New Zealand since 22 October 2013.  On that occasion England held out for a win after posting 125/8 at Kensington Oval.  In the interim, New Zealand had been victorious in twenty T20Is in which they’d been set targets of under 140 runs.

29, 39, 46 – No player aged 16 or under had ever made a score of 20+ runs at any Women’s T20 World Cup, until Australia 2020.  Shafali Verma (16 years 30 days) has now done so in all three matches she’s played at the tournament, while also improving her score in each successive innings.

50 – At 22 years 187 days, Deepti Sharma became the 2nd youngest woman to take 50 T20I wickets.  The current record holder is Stafanie Taylor (22 years 135 days), though it’s likely that mark will be beaten by at least two players during the T20 World Cup – Bangladesh’s Nahida AKter and England’s Sophie Ecclestone.

34*, 2/21, ct 2 – Amelia Kerr was the first player ever to contribute 25 or more runs, two or more wickets and make two or more catches in the same Women’s T20 World Cup match.  Such an all-round contribution has only been made ten times in all women’s T20 internationals.  At 19 years 137 days, Kerr is the youngest woman to achieve this feat.

34* – Kerr’s innings with the bat was the 2nd highest T20I score for a New Zealand player batting outside the top five in the batting order.

5 – The 1st innings was the 3rd Women’s T20 World Cup innings in which five bowlers each delivered their full quota of 4.0 overs while also taking at least one wicket apiece.

83 – Healy’s eventual score was the highest by a wicket keeper at a Women’s T20 World Cup, beating Sarah Taylor’s 65* for England against Australia in 2012.  Healy’s match haul against Bangladesh also saw her overtake Taylor to set new tournament records for most runs (558) and most dismissals (22) by a keeper.

81 – Beth Mooney’s 81 made this the 4th women’s T20I innings to feature two scores of 80+ runs, and the first such innings to be made against a full member nation.

151 – Healy & Mooney’s opening stand was the 3rd highest partnership at a Women’s T20 World Cup and Australia’s highest partnership for any wicket in a women’s T20 international match.  Australia’s record had stood since their very first match in the format, when Karen Rolton & Kate Blackwell amassed 147* against England at Taunton on 2 September 2005.

1st – Healy & Mooney now have the most runs (1,232) and most 50+ stands (10) of any opening partnership in women’s T20Is, overtaking New Zealand’s Suzie Bates & Sophie Devine on both counts.

4 – Knight’s innings was the 4th 50+ score of her career, all of which have been made at Manuka Oval.  This is the most 50+ scores for any woman at a single T20I venue.  In her eight innings at Manuka, Knight has scored 322 of her 1,060 T20I career runs.

Pakistan 127/2 (18.2) beat West Indies 124/7 (20.0) by 8 wickets
Highlights


1 – Diana Baig was the first Pakistani bowler to take a wicket with the first ball of a Women’s T20 World Cup match.

125 – This was the 3rd highest target Pakistan women have successfully chased in T20Is, and their highest successful chase at the T20 World Cup.

54.71 – Bismah Maroof (38* today) has the 3rd highest average in successful women’s T20I chases (minimum 10 innings batted), beaten only by Dane van Niekerk (57.40) and Mithali Raj (55.50).

58 – Javeria Khan and Muneeba Ali’s partnership was Pakistan women’s highest opening stand in T20Is since 2015, and their 2nd highest 1st wicket partnership overall.  Javeria Khan has been a part of all four 50+ opening stands Pakistan women have made in the format.
