Australia Claim T20 World Cup Title

Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney struck the highest scores in ICC Women’s T20 World Cup final history, and Megan Schutt took four wickets as record-breaking Australia secured a fifth title on home soil.

A record-breaking attendance for a women’s cricket match of 86,174 watched on as Australia downed first-time finalists India by 85 runs at the MCG, with the openers setting the tone for a clinical performance.

The pair put on 115 and never looked back, with Healy (75) lighting up Melbourne with a jaw-dropping display. India’s bid to chase 185 was always going to be difficult, with leading wicket-taker Schutt taking the first four-wicket haul in a final to restrict Harmanpreet Kaur’s side to 99 all out.

For Meg Lanning, meanwhile, the greatest moment in her career is complete – following in the footsteps of Lyn Larsen and Michael Clarke in winning an ICC event as Australia captain on home soil.
