Australia lifted the T20 World Cup for the sixth time after beating South Africa in the final of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in 2023. The world’s top-ranked team posted 156/6 with Beth Mooney top-scoring with 74*.
The Australian bowlers put up an excellent display, throttling the scoring rate of South Africa’s openers at the start of the reply, conceding just 22 runs in the Powerplay. Darcie Brown’s electric performance sent the in-form Tazmin Brits back to the dugout.
However, Laura Wolvaardt’s impressive display of big shots raised hopes for South Africa, as she quickly surged to 61 runs off 48 balls. Despite Wolvaardt’s efforts, Megan Schutt dismissed her and Jess Jonassen took care of the dangerous Chloe Tryon, making it difficult for South Africa to maintain the required rate of scoring in the death overs. As a result, Australia won the match by 19 runs, securing yet another addition to their trophy cabinet.
