Alyssa Healy hit a run-a-ball century in the World Cup final, and she also hit a century in the semi-final against West Indies.
After completing her century, the 32-year-old batter altered gears, scoring 70 more runs in only 38 balls to help Australia set a difficult 357-run mark in the final.
Alyssa Healy’s tonne was particularly memorable for her because her husband, Australia men’s team bowler Mitchell Starc, was present in the grandstand to see it. Starc was seen cheering in the stands as soon as Healy got her century off 100 balls.
Haynes also broke Debbie Hockley’s 1997 World Cup record of 456 runs for the most runs in a Women’s World Cup. Alyssa Healy, on the other hand, shattered the mark shortly after, scoring 500 runs in the Women’s World Cup 2022, helping Australia achieve the highest-ever total in a World Cup final.
