A record 170 in the final of the Women's World Cup 2022 helped Alyssa Healy grab the top spot in the ICC ODI rankings for batters. As a result, Laura Wolvaardt's stay at No. 1 was short-lived and she finds herself at the fourth spot.
Nat Sciver, who scored an unbeaten 148 in vain in the title-clash, usurped Ellyse Perry at the top in the allrounders' charts while climbing up to second in the batters' rankings. Apart from finishing with 436 runs, Sciver also picked up four wickets in the tournament.
Healy, who had just two half-centuries to show in the round-robin stage, had slid down to the fifth spot last week. However, two centuries in two knockout games - being the first ever to do so in World Cups - meant that she became the first player to score over 500 runs in the women's tournament. It enabled Australia to win their seventh trophy out of the 12 editions.
Rachael Haynes, who scored 497 runs in the tournament, was the lowest-ranked Australian batter in the top ten, placed at sixth. Beth Mooney (third) and Meg Lanning (fifth) are the others above her.
Mithali Raj and Smriti Mandhana, who gained a spot to be placed ninth, continue to be the only Indians in the top ten.
Among the bowlers, Sophie Ecclestone continues to lead the rankings, despite going wicketless in the final. She picked six wickets in the semi-final against South Africa. Shabnim Ismail, who finished second among the wicket-takers in the World Cup, gained a spot to be ranked second. Anya Shrubsole's five wickets across two knockout games saw her gain five places to eighth, a spot above team-mate Kate Cross.
