2 - Previous instances of a team making it to the final of a World Cup [men or women] despite losing three consecutive matches in the same edition. Pakistan and New Zealand had lost three matches in a row during the 1999 and 2019 editions, respectively, on their way to the final of the men's ODI World Cups. England's three defeats during the league phase this time came in their first three games.
15 - Consecutive completed chases without a defeat for South Africa before their 137-run loss against England. Their last ODI loss while chasing came against Indiaback in 2019, where in pursuit of a 147-run target, they fell short by six runs. Only two teams across men's and women's ODIs have had better winning streaks while chasing. The Australia women's team currently holds the record, having gone undefeated chasing on 19 occasions in ODIs since the start of 2018. The India men's team had won 17 consecutive matches chasing between 2005 and 2006.
6 for 36 - Sophie Ecclestone's bowling figures in the semi-final against South Africa are the third-bestin the women's ODI World Cup. Two New Zealanders head the list. Jackie Lord had figures of 6 for 10 against India in the 1982 edition, while Glenys Page returned 6 for 22 against Trinidad & Tobago in 1973.
2 - Ecclestone became only the second player with a five-wicket haul in a women's ODI World Cup knockout game. Anya Shrubsole returned 6 for 46 during the final of the 2017 edition against India, which England won by nine runs.
2 - Ecclestone's 6 for 36 is also the second-best for England in women's ODIs, behind Jo Chamberlain's 7 for 8 against Denmark in 1991. Ecclestone is also the first player to claim a six-wicket haul against South Africa in women's ODIs.
129 - Danni Wyatt's score in Christchurch is the joint-second-highest individual effort in a women's ODI World Cup knockout match. Alyssa Healy also scored 129 in the first semi-final against West Indies, in Wellington. The record for the highest score is 171* by Harmanpreet Kaur against Australia in the semi-final of the 2017 ODI World Cup.
57* - Charlotte Edwards' score against Sri Lanka in the 1997 World Cup quarter-finals was the previous highest score for England in a women's ODI World Cup knockout game. Both Wyatt (129) and Sophia Dunkley (60) went past Edwards' score in the semi-final against South Africa.
1 - The game between England and South Africa is the first women's ODI with a century and a six-wicket haul. There have been 21 previous instances of a hundred and a five-for in the same women's ODI.
