Unbelievable! Australian women’s cricket team bags victory by massive 571 runs in 50-over game

A women’s cricket club team in Australia achieved unbelievable record when they defeated their opponent by 571 runs. The match was played between Northern Districts and Port Adelaide in the SACA PC Statewide Super Women’s 1st Grade match. Northern Districts scored 596/3 in 50 overs while batting first and dismissed all the batsmen of Port Adelaide at the mere score of 25 in 10.5 over. This amazing all-round performance helped Northern Districts to bag victory by 571 runs.

For the Northern Districts, Tegan McPharlin, Sam Betts, Tabitha Saville and Darcie Brown scored a century each while keeping the run rate above 12. McPharlin was the top scorer with 130 runs off 80 balls, followed by Betts 124* (71), Saville 120 (56) and Brown 117* (84).  Interestingly, there were only 3 sixes hit during Northern Districts’ innings and majority of the runs came through fours (64).

“It’s pretty unreal to make a total like that. At the time, we weren’t chasing any records or trying to set any benchmarks in that way. We were just playing cricket shots,” top-scorer McPharlin told abc.net.au. “The runs just kept piling on. There were only three sixes hit for the entire day for us. It just shows that we were willing to run between the wickets and hit along the ground and actually play proper cricket,” she added. “A few of us were wondering if it was a world record or whatever – it’s definitely a club record and we’re pretty sure it’s a SACA (SA Cricket Association) record,” Northern Districts’ cricket director Jeanette Beazleigh said.


 
Meanwhile, the biggest score in international ODI matches was achieved by New Zealand women when they scored 490/4 against Ireland in 2018. This is followed by men’s score of 481-4, made by England against Australia, also in 2018. Overall, the highest score in any professional cricket is believed to be Mpumalanga’s 1/690 against Kei in a girls under-19s match in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2010.
