Alyssa Healy loves World Cup finals.

She scored a fluent 75 from 39 balls to drown out India in the T20 World Cup summit clash in 2020 with over 86,000 people watching and went a step ahead and scored a brilliant 170 from 138 balls to help Australia to 356/5 in 50 overs in the ODI Women's World Cup final against England in Christchurch on Sunday.

This is the highest individual score in a World Cup final by a man or woman., bettering Karen Rolton's unbeaten 107 against India in 2005 and also better than an illustrious list of the male players including Sir Viv Richards (138* against England in 1979), ex-Australia captain Ricky Ponting (140* against India in 2003) and former Australia keeper Adam Gilchrist (149 against Sri Lanka in 2007).

With this ton, Healy became the second woman to score a century in a World Cup final. She is also the second wicketkeeper to score back-to-back centuries in WODIs after Rachel Priest in 2015. She also became the first woman to score a century in the semifinal and final of a World Cup edition.  She joins Shane Watson as the only player to do so in an international tournament (Watson managed the feat in the 2009 Champions Trophy).

Healy became the first woman to win consecutive player of the match awards in the semifinal and final of a World Cup, joining Mohinder Amarnath (1983 World Cup), Aravinda de Silva (1996 World Cup) and Shane Warne (1999 World Cup) in an exclusive club.

She breached the 2500-run milestone in ODIs, making her the 9th Australian woman to do so. She also crossed the 500+ mark in World Cup runs.

She finished with 509 runs overall - the most runs by an individual in a single edition of the tournament, going by New Zealand's Debbie Hockley and her opening partner Rachel Haynes for that record.

 

Alongside her opening partner Rachel Haynes, Healy was also part of the highest partnership in a Women's World Cup final, for any wicket - 160 runs off 175 balls. 

She also pipped her captain Meg Lanning, who scored 135 earlier in the tournament, to register the tournament's highest individual score in this edition. This score is also her highest in ODIs so far.

Her score in the final is also the second highest score for Australia in the format.

Healy's husband, Australian pacer Mitchell Starc, was in attendance, cheering her on.
