On Sunday, Australia was crowned World Champions for the sixth time in a row. Meg Lanning’s team won the title in Cape Town by defeating hosts South Africa by 19 runs.
Meanwhile, Australia appears to be hungry for another championship. In the semi-finals against India, Lanning’s team found ways to recover after India threatened to take the game away from them. Batting and bowling are working in tandem, with key players such as Beth Mooney, Lanning, Perry, and Schutt finding form at the right time. Australia is used to dealing with pressure situations, which they would try to exploit against South Africa. The Women in Yellow are also the competition’s only unbeaten team.
