Watch: Megan Schutt Sends Danni Wyatt's Stump Flying With "Absolute Ripper" In Women's World Cup Final
ICC Women's World Cup: Megan Schutt bowled a perfect inswinger to get the better of England opener Danni Wyatt in the ICC Women's World Cup final.
Australia scripted history on Sunday as the Meg Lanning-led side registered their record-extending seventh 50-over Women's World Cup title. The side displayed an all-round performance to get the better of England in the final and in the end, they registered a comprehensive 71-run win. After Alyssa Healy's blazing 170-run knock, the bowlers got the job done and celebrations were on offering for Meg Lanning and team. Defending 357, Megan Schutt got Australia off to a perfect start as she got the better of Danni Wyatt.
In the third over of the innings, Schutt bowled a perfect inswinger. The ball landed on a good length and it drew Wyatt forward. The England opener just managed to push at the ball and there was a big gap between bat-pad, that allowed the ball to nip back in and hit the top of middle stump.
