Stats - Alyssa Healy and Australia smash World Cup records

The highest score in a World Cup final. The first 300-plus total in a World Cup final. The highest partnership in a World Cup final. And more

170 Alyssa Healy's score against England. It is now the highest individual score for any batter in a World Cup final (men or women), surpassing Adam Gilchrist's 149 against Sri Lanka in 2007.
356 for 5 Australia's total is the first-ever instance of a 300-plus total in a Women's ODI World Cup final. The previous highest was only 259 for 7 by Australia in 2013 against West Indies. Australia's 356 is also the second-highest total in a World Cup final (men or women), behind the 359 for 2 by the Australian men's team against India in 2003.
3 This 356 is Australia's third-highest total in Women's ODIs. They posted 412 for 3 in the 1997 World Cup against Denmark and 397 for 4 against Pakistan earlier in the same year. This is also the highest Women's ODI total against England. Australia broke their own record, which they set at the start of the tournament with 310 for 3 in Hamilton.
2 Healy's 170 is the second-highest score in Women's ODIs for Australia, behind Belinda Clark's 229* in the 1997 World Cup against Denmark. It is the highest score by any batter against England in this format, going past Clark's 146* in 2000.
1 Healy became the first player to score two hundreds in the knockouts of an ODI World Cup. She scored 129 against West Indies in the semi-final in Wellington. Only two players before her had multiple tons in World Cup knockouts - Ricky Ponting (2003 final and 2011 quarter-final) and Mahela Jayawardene (2007 semi-final and 2011 final).
509 Runs by Healy in this tournament, the first player with 500-plus runs in an edition of the Women's ODI World Cup. The 497 runs made by Rachael Haynes in this tournament is the second-highest tally in a Women's World Cup. The opening duo from Australia broke the record held by Debbie Hockley with 456 runs in 1997.
170 Healy's innings is also the highest individual score by a wicketkeeper in Women's ODIs. The previous highest was Rachel Priest's 157 against Sri Lanka in 2015.
2 Australia's innings is only the second in Women's ODI history to feature two 150-plus partnerships. The first such instance was also featured Australia when they hit 397 for 4 against Pakistan in 1997. The two partnerships involving Healy - 160 with Haynes and 156 with Beth Mooney are the highest stands in the Women's ODI World Cup finals.
