Australia opener Alyssa Healy produced a record-breaking 170 runs in the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 final against England on Sunday.

With this 170-run knock, Healy broke the record of Karen Rolton for registering the highest individual score in the final of a Women's World Cup.

Healy also holds the record for scoring most runs in a single edition of the Women's World Cup. The batter has managed to score 509 in this edition of the tournament and is the first batter to register more than 500 runs in a single edition of the Women's World Cup.

Healy was dismissed in the 46th over but her 170 runs propelled Australia to set a massive 357 run target in the final against England.

Earlier, England captain Heather Knight won the toss and opted to bowl first at Christchurch's Hagley Oval, however, the English were unable to find an early breakthrough as Healy and Haynes put up the 160-run stand before the latter was removed by Sophie Ecclestone in the 30th over of the match.
