The Australia veteran scored her fifth ODI century in the title decider and what an innings it was. Healy's match-winning knock featured a whopping 26 boundaries and came from just 138 deliveries as she almost single-handledly destroyed an experienced England bowling line-up with a solid combination of both power and class.
On any other day Sciver's knock would have been considered a match-winning innings, but it was unfortunate for Sciver - and for England - that Healy outscored the right-hander earlier in the day. Still, Sciver's innings was world class, with the 29-year-old hitting 15 boundaries and one six during her unbeaten 121-ball stay that almost catapulted England over the line.
The Australia captain brought up her 15th ODI century with a brilliant innings in Wellington that ensured Australia chased down South Africa's decent total of 271/5. Australia lost two early wickets in reply, but Lanning took over from that point on and never looked in trouble against a world class South African attack. Lanning hit 15 boundaries and one six during her 130-ball stay, with her poise at the crease a clear standout.
The classy opener set the scene for the tournament with this excellent innings during Australia's first match of the 50-over event. Haynes' ability to find the gaps during the middle overs was a standout during this innings, with her 196-run partnership with skipper Meg Lanning laying the platform for Australia's big score. It was Haynes' second ODI century and also her biggest ODI score for her country.
While Alyssa Healy also scored 129 at the tournament, we thought it was best to mention Wyatt's innings for England in their winning semi-final given Healy already features in this list. While Wyatt may have been handed a few lives by South Africa's usually reliable fielders, the England opener showed her class to reach three figures and then go on and register her highest ODI score. Wyatt's 125-ball stay included 12 boundaries and it proved a match-winning knock as South Africa never came close to chasing down England's score.
