Records fell in overflow as Healy sent the English bowlers on a calfskin chase in Christchurch while delivering the most elevated ever individual score in a World Cup last, men’s or alternately ladies’, to set up Australia’s title-securing 356/5 in the wake of being placed in to bat. With individual opener Rachael Haynes (68), she put on 160 to keep the most elevated stand throughout the entire existence of World Cup finals for any wicket. Healy is currently the main player in Women’s World Cups to enroll consecutive hundreds of years in knockouts. When England could see as a far beyond her in the 46th over, Healy (509) had jumped Haynes (497) to likewise turn into the first to enlist 500 runs in a solitary version of the competition along these lines, as a matter of course resetting the record that had a place with Debby Hockley (456) starting around 1997 and her Australian bad habit commander since the fourteenth over.
That was when Haynes cut and drove youthful offspinner Charlie Dean for several limits to flag a switch of gears. Britain started well with the ball, with the veteran sets of Katherine Brunt and Anya Shrubsole getting the ball to swing to keep a mind the openers’ scoring. Australia just had 37 from their powerplay and the initial fifty came just an over already.
Constrained into additional bowling changes for a frantic leap forward, England originally consumed an audit on Healy – then, at that point, on 30 off 40 – and afterward saw two possibilities being put down in about three conveyances in a solitary Kate Cross over. Haynes, dropped by Wyatt on 47, raised her 50 years before the finish of the over – soon after Sciver’s late response to a clear take at midwicket gave Healy a relief on 41. She contacted her fifty with the first of the consecutive limits in Cross’ next over similarly as Australia went past 100. The pair took only six additional overs to make that 150, resetting the association record, as Dean and Brunt copped greater discipline from Healy.
That constrained Heather Knight’s hand again yet the bowling change this time brought some alleviation. Ecclestone had Haynes flinging the principal chunk of her new spell to Tammy Beaumont on 68. The festivals were fleeting as Healy held hands with the recently elevated Beth Mooney to put on one more century organization that came at better compared to run-a-ball.

The most awful, presumably, was on the way for England as Healy got eight limits in the following three overs that went for 18, 19 and 18 from Sciver, Eccelstone and Cross individually. Australia were 315/1 before the finish of 45th.
Shrubsole got three late wickets – denying Healy a likely shot at a World Cup twofold, stopping Meg Lanning’s firecrackers early, and having Mooney gotten on 62 – to hold Australia back from detonating further. Yet, setting them a record most elevated pursue of 357 to safeguard their crown was to the point of overpowering England.
Wyatt, who additionally had a possibility of equalling Healy’s accomplishment following her profession best 129 in the elimination round, was bowled through the bat-cushion hole by Megan Schutt in her second. Another sharp inswinger caught Beaumont plumb LBW on 26-ball 27 inside the seventh over. Schutt accepted she had asserted the third – Sciver – in the equivalent over yet the DRS replays showed the ball swinging an excessive lot of this opportunity to serenely pass the leg-stump. With the request from in excess of 7 an over right from the beginning of their pursuit, England had their fifty up by the eighth over and Heather Knight added three limits to it in the last powerplay over when Darcie Brown doled out leg-side gifts.
Sciver pulled Alana King to the fence for the initial six of the last in the leggie’s first finished, and dispatched Tahlia McGrath to the fence two times in her second. Australia’s festivals were stopped when Sciver utilized a survey to save herself from the LBW call, yet saw her captain beaten by King’s twist one ball later to withdraw for 25-ball 26. Britain slipped a bit further when Jess Jonassen broke the sprouting association of 43 among Sciver and Amy Jones (20), who likewise scored at more than run a ball however sufficiently not to have an effect. In like manner with Sophia Dunkley (23) who, after a promising 50-run association off 45, was bowled around her legs by King in an accurate replay of her excusal from their competition opener.
Notwithstanding their expanding wickets section, England would have really fared moderately better compared to Australia’s scoring, and had Sciver’s venturesome thump to thank for it. They were coming up on the 200 by the 30th over yet King and Healy consolidated for a sharp baffling to eliminate Brunt for 1. Eccelstone and Cross’ takeoffs six balls separated authoritatively uncovered England’s tail before long. Sciver however stood firm in the midst of the vestiges, and postponed the unavoidable with a 65-run association, with No. 10 Dean to save Australia under control for another nine overs. The English bad habit commander then doled out a last callback to their cooperative conflict by scoring up one more century against the Ashes rivals, additionally her second of the competition.
Debris Gardner, kept down until the 40th over, struck in her second to break the association and hurry England’s exit. She had Dean chipping one directly to Jonassen at in reverse point prior to pouching the catch when Shrubsole holed out, welcoming draperies on England’s battle.
