On Sunday, Australia will meet either South Africa or 2017 champions England in the final of the 50-over competition in Christchurch.

Australia continued to prove why they are the most dominant force in women’s cricket by a wide margin as they thrashed West Indies in the first semi-final of the 2022I CC Women’s World Cup. The winning margin for Meg Lanning’s side was 157 runs. First-rounders Rachael Haynes (85), and Alysha Healy (129), set the tone with a 305-run total for Australia.

Beth Mooney continued her unbeaten streak with a series of ferocious strikes at the finish of the match. A magnificent fielding display from Mooney ensured Australia’s ideal start to the defense of their massive total.

On Wednesday, Australia cruised to a 157-run victory over the West Indies and a place in the final of the Women’s World Cup. The rain-shortened semi-final between Australia and New Zealand was controlled from the start by the seasoned openers Alyssa Healy and Rachael Haynes, who put on a 216-run partnership, the most of the competition. Only 45 overs into the match, the West Indies were bowled out for just 148 in the 37th overs, a total that was never threatened.

With an undefeated record in the 50-over event, the six-time champions Australia will play either South Africa or England for the title on Sunday in Christchurch.
