Australia, England, and New Zealand are the only teams to have featured at every Women’s Cricket World Cup which puts them streets ahead in terms of the number of games played, and the number of games won.
As six-time champions, Australia’s record is phenomenal: losing just ten World Cup games. Behind them the WHITE FERNS and England have very similar records, both registering their 50th World Cup victory at the 2017 edition of the tournament.
While the top three sides should feature in the semi-finals, this will be the most competitive World Cup ever. Expect upsets.
World Cup Record (all 2017 teams)
Debbie Hockley is streets ahead on this list and, barring an exceptional 2017 tournament from Suzie Bates, she’ll stay there.
Hockley’s career tally is the fourth best across both men’s and women’s World Cups. One of the world’s best with the bat, playing in five tournaments (second to Sachin Tendulkar) and in 45 games (second to Ricky Ponting) certainly helped Hockley rack up the runs.
WHITE FERNS' Leading World Cup Run-Scorers
It’s an encouraging sign for the WHITE FERNS that the players who hit their highest World Cup scores are both returning for 2017.
A feature of the innings on the list is just how much they contributed to massive New Zealand wins. The latest addition to the list is no different, with Suzie Bates adding her third World Cup century in the WHITE FERNS’ win over Sri Lanka in 2017’s tournament opener.
WHITE FERNS' Highest World Cup Scores
Current captain, Suzie Bates, and current coach, Haidee Tiffen, combined for an immense partnership at the 2009 World Cup that saw the WHITE FERNS’ secure a place in the final. Bates, in her first World Cup, hit 168 off just 105 balls while Tiffen, in her last World Cup as a player, hit her first ODI century.
The class of the pair is evident in their featuring in other stands on this list.

Only two women have featured in more World Cup games than Catherine Campbell, while there are just nine to have claimed more tournament wickets. In second spot on the list, Katrina Keenan’s performances are notable for that incredible average. No one to have bowled in at least ten World Cup games can better her mark.
Of the current squad, Sophie Devine (11) leads the way ahead of the rising star of Amelia Kerr (10).
WHITE FERNS' Leading World Cup Wicket-Takers
Here’s something to be proud of: the first three performances on this list are also the best figures by any bowlers in Women’s Cricket World Cups. All five efforts on this list slot in to the all-time top 10.
Jackie Lord’s effort is one of the most dominant bowling returns in ODI cricket. With Lord in charge, New Zealand bowled India out for a record low score (37) when defending just 80.
WHITE FERNS' Best World Cup Bowling
In 2017, Rachel Priest will equal Rebecca Rolls’ feat of playing in three World Cups and, with seven pool games, she should go close to breaking her catches record. With Leigh Kasperek, Erin Bermingham, and Amelia Kerr in the WHITE FERNS’ squad, expect some stumpings too.
