After scoring an incredible 170 runs in the championship match of the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022, Alyssa Healy has shot to the top of the ICC ODI Batter Rankings.
An outstanding knock from the Australian batswoman propelled her to the top of the rankings, putting an end to the brief reign of the South African opener Laura Wolvaardt at the pinnacle.
Healy, who is 32 years old, scored an impressive 509 runs over her nine matches at the World Cup
Including two hundreds and two half-centuries, and she did it at a strike rate of 103.66, which is an intimidatingly high number.
Because of this haul, Healy ended up as the player with the most points in the competition, edging out her fellow countrywoman Rachael Haynes.
Beth Mooney, Meg Lanning, and Haynes join Healy as one of the highest-ranked batters in the world according to the most recent MRF ODI Rankings. These four Australians continue to hold four of the top six spots in the rankings.
And after the conclusion of the event, the top ten of the most recent Rankings have an entirely new look, with not a single player staying in the same spot as before.
As a result of Nat Sciver’s unbeaten 148* in England’s unsuccessful reply in the championship game on Sunday, she has moved up to second place in the batting rankings.
Because of her outstanding performance, the England star has surpassed Ellyse Perry to take the prestigious number one spot in the all-rounder rankings.
The English all-rounder scored 436 runs in New Zealand across her eight innings, averaging 72.66 and scoring a hundred twice during the tournament. Sciver’s century in the final was her second of the competition.
In addition, the 29-year-old picked up four wickets while returning economical figures throughout the World Cup with her deft medium-pace bowling. Her performance helped the United States win the tournament.
After a fantastic tournament, South African pacer Shabnim Ismail moved up into second place in the Bowler Rankings, while English spinner Sophie Ecclestone maintained her position at the top of the rankings.
At the conclusion of the World Cup, these two players held the top two spots in the column indicating the number of wickets taken, with the dangerous Ismail taking 14 wickets over the course of seven innings. Ecclestone finished the competition with 21 wickets to her name, averaging 15.61 runs per wicket, and an economy rate of just 3.83 runs per over. There is no question that Ecclestone was the best bowler in the competition.
Anya Shrubsole, a veteran swing bowler, had figures of 2/27 in the semi-final and 3/46 in the final, making her the biggest mover in the most recent bowling rankings. She entered the top ten after moving up five places to take the spot at number ten.
