Australia's thumping 71-run win in the World cup final over England, arguably the second-best side in the world, underlined the dominance that the reigning world champions hold over the rest of the powerhouses. Alike the T20 world cup final in 2020, Alyssa Healy produced yet another glowing masterclass on Sunday, with a monster 170 and laid the platform for Australia's huge total, and with it, world cup glory. Winning skipper Lanning said at the post-match press conference that crunch games push the Australian Women's side and they do not feel overawed by the occasion.
