8-0 - Australia have defeated South Africa in all their eight meetings at the Women's ODI World Cup. These are the most matches won by a team against an opponent without a defeat at the Women's World Cup. Australia have never lost a Women's ODI to South Africa - they've won 14 out of 15, with one ending in a tie.
0 - Previous instances of a team chasing down 250-plus targets against South Africa in Women's ODIs. The highest successful target chase against South Africa before Australia's 272-run chase today was 248 by India in 2019.
135* - Meg Lanning's score against South Africa, the joint-second highest individual score in a Women's ODI chase. Each of the top three individual scores while chasing in Women's ODIs has been recorded by Lanning. She scored 152* against Sri Lanka at the 2017 World Cup, and an unbeaten 135 against West Indies in 2014.
272 - The target chased by Australia in Wellington, the second-highest successful chase at the Women's ODI World Cup. The highest chase was by Australia on Saturday, when they chased 278 against India in Auckland. All the three successful 250-plus chases in Women's World Cups have been recorded by Australia, with Lanning being their top scorer in each of them.
15 - ODI centuries for Lanning. These are the most by any player in Women's ODIs and four more than the next best: Suzie Bates (11). Lanning, in 97 innings, is the second-fastest to 15 hundreds in ODI cricket (men and women). The only player to score their first 15 ODI hundreds in fewer innings is Hashim Amla (86 innings).
10 - Hundreds in Women's ODI chases for Lanning, twice the second-highest - Amy Satterthwaite (5). All of Lanning's ten centuries in chases have come in Australia wins. Only Virat Kohli (22), Sachin Tendulkar (14) and Rohit Sharma (11) have more hundreds in successful ODI chases.
4 - Consecutive fifty-plus scores for Laura Wolvaardt in the Women's World Cup. She is only the third batter to achieve this feat. Ellyse Perry had five consecutive fifties in the 2017 edition, while Chamari Athapaththu scored four spread across 2013 and 2017. Wolvaardt also became the first player with fifty-plus scores in four successive Women's ODIs for South Africa.
