The top 5 longest innings at CWC22

Cricket World Cup longest innings

In this article, we take a look back at the five most impressive innings that were played during the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup in New Zealand.

Alyssa Healy 170 vs England

In the match that decided who would win the championship, the Australian veteran scored her fifth century in one-day international competition. She almost single-handedly decimated an experienced England bowling line-up with a strong combination of both power and class, as demonstrated by Healy’s match-winning knock, which included a staggering 26 fours and came from just 138 deliveries.

Nat Sciver 148 vs Australia

It was unfortunate for both Sciver and England that Healy scored more runs than the right-hander earlier in the day. On any other day, Sciver’s knock would have been considered a match-winning innings. Still, Sciver’s innings was of the highest caliber. The 29-year-old hit 15 fours and one six during her unbeaten stay of 121 balls, which nearly propelled England across the finish line.

Meg Lanning 135 vs South Africa

With a brilliant innings in Wellington, the Australia captain reached her 15th century in one-day international competition, which was crucial in ensuring that Australia beat South Africa’s respectable total of 271/5. Lanning took control after Australia had already lost two wickets early in their reply, but Australia never looked in danger despite South Africa’s world-class bowling attack once she took over. During her stay of 130 balls, Lanning hit 15 fours and one six, and her composure at the crease was a glaring highlight of the game.

Rachael Haynes 130 vs England

During Australia’s first match of the 50-over event, the classy opener played an excellent innings, which helped set the tone for the tournament as a whole. The ability of Haynes to find gaps during the middle overs was a standout performance during this innings. Her 196-run partnership with Meg Lanning, who was the captain, laid the foundation for Australia’s impressive total score. It was Haynes’ second century in one-day internationals and also her highest score for her country in one-day internationals.

Danni Wyatt 129 vs South Africa

Although Alyssa Healy also scored 129 at the competition, we felt it was more appropriate to highlight Wyatt’s performance for England in their victorious semifinal given that Healy already appears on this list. While South Africa’s typically dependable fielders may have saved Wyatt’s life a few times, the England opener displayed class to reach three figures and then go on to score her highest ODI total. Wyatt’s 125-ball stay, which featured 12 boundaries, ended up being the game-winning innings because South Africa never came close to matching England’s total.
