After exact nine years, England beat Australia at the Cricket Ground in Brisbane.

Discussions started in 1971 with Jack Hayward on the hosting of a women’s cricket World Cup. South Africa was not allowed to participate despite scrutiny from the west for its apartheid rules. Australia and New Zealand were allowed to play. Hayward had previously arranged women’s tours of the West Indians and the two other competing countries, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, were drawn from this region. Britain also had a “young England” team in place to make up the numbers, including an “International XI.” The International XI was called on by five South Africans to play for reimbursement.

Best woman cricketers in the World

There are several good women cricketers in the world. Everyone has different abilities and records out there, which is not comparable. Still here is the list of Top 5 Female Cricketers:

1. Ellyse Perry

Ellyse Perry
Ellyse Perry

She considered as No. 1 women cricketer in the world. She is an all-rounder in the field. She was a fantastic player in all four World Cup wins in Australia from 2010 to 2014, including a heroic three for 19 in the World Cup final 2013 when it was hardly possible to walk. It was accompanied by success with a bat: on average 95.33 in the Ashes of 2014 and then in two-day international matches, with 16 fifties, including five in a row during the World cup of 2017. 


2. Suzie Bates

For at least the last quarter of her 12 years, Bates displayed the kind of reliability that has kept her consistently at the “best in the world” talk. Bates is an all-rounder who saw and achieved everything in the game. It is surprising that she also carries up captaincy responsibilities on her teams–the Vipers and Scorchers–while even playing. Two years later, she was a junior international hit by one hundred at the age of 19. In the last seven years, 7 ODI hundreds saw them rated in the ICC at No 2. In the format T20, she also holds the same position.


3. Meg Lanning

Meg Lanning
Meg Lanning

It can seem a surprise to see Lanning, who is nicknaming “Jesus” in a few positions pick her up bronze in our ranks-rarely sees the silver. Unquestionably, because of a shoulder weakened her, she pays the price for not able to play that caused the Australian team. She played with a single-arm through the 2017 World Cup, allowing her 328 runs to 82 with a 152 knock, not to Sri Lanka. She was back in action earlier in March and flickering 88 against England on 45 balls of a T20.


4. Mithali Raj

Mithali Raj

Raj, the highest-ranked Indian player in the chart, has found herself above all. Last August, she hit a remarkable seven straight half centuries, the longest string of women’s ODIs. The youngest in the group in 35, her influence show no signs of diminution. She has won Charlotte Edwards in this tournament as the leading scorer in women’s ODIs and now has the record of the 50 + scores she won in March, guiding India to a win against England.


5. Marizanne Kapp

Marizanne Kap
Marizanne Kap

Kapp consistently jostles it as the most vigorous all-rounder in the world with Perry and thrives in bat pressure situations. Kapp is an offensive player. She is very at the center of the rise of South Africa as a real opponent of the duopoly of Australia and Britain. She has been the sixth woman to play the T20 hat trick for the top score in her nation during a World Cup ODI (102 in 2013 vs Pakistan).
