The Australian women’s cricket team currently captained by Meg Lanning and coached by Shelley Nitschke is standing at the no.1 position in terms of the ICC rankings.
In the 50-over format of the game, the Australian women’s cricket team has won more ICC World Cups than all other teams combined—capturing the 1978, 1982, 1988, 1997, 2005, 2013, and 2022 titles. Australian women’s national cricket team has achieved a similar kind of dominant success in Twenty20 Cricket by winning the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2018, and 2020.
Even yesterday, in the warm-up match of the World Cup, the Australian women’s national cricket team thrashed the Indian women’s national team by 33 runs by stopping India at a score of 86/10 while the Australian women’s cricket team scored 129/8.
Even the Australian Men’s cricket team dominance has faded away as it did in the late 90s and early 2000s but the Australian Women’s Cricket Team has dominated the game of cricket from the beginning and even now defeating Australian Women’s Cricket Team is the biggest challenge for any team.
