Meanwhile, Cricket Australia on Monday launched the trailer of a documentary ‘The Record’ which depicts the Australian women’s team journey at the 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup where they defeated India in a pulsating final to emerge as champions. The documentary follows the heroic exploits on the field and the equally daring off-field campaign to “fill the MCG” for the final on International Women’s Day 2020.
It goes inside the most dramatic World Cup in history and gives voice to the players who belong on this stage. Produced by Her Films, the documentary has voices of Meg Lanning, Rachael Haynes, Australia head coach Matthew Mott, Beth Mooney, Megan Schutt, Alyssa Healy, Ellyse Perry, Molly Strano, Harmanpreet Kaur, Heather Knight, Dane van Niekerk, and Sornnarin Tippoch.
Nick Hockley: The Documentation Of Australia’s ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Campaign Reflects The Monumental Occasion
Cricket Australia interim CEO Nick Hockley said ‘The Record’ is a production that the cricket board is extremely proud of and excited to see come to life.
“The documentation of Australia’s ICC Women’s T20 World Cup campaign has given us the opportunity to reflect on what was a monumental occasion for cricket,” he said.
“I would like to thank everyone who played their part in bringing both the event and this documentary to life. Reliving this special moment in time will hopefully inspire the next generation of cricketers, both girls and boys, to aspire to play on the biggest stage of all,” he added.
Ricky Ponting still holds the record for scoring the most runs in his 100th Test match, tallying 263 runs with 120 and 143 not out against South Africa. England skipper Joe Root just failed to eclipse that record in the on-going first Test against India in Chennai when he scored 218 and 40 in the two innings. The former Australia captain scored 13378 runs in 168 Test matches at an average of 51.85 and 13704 runs in 375 ODIs at an average of 42.03.
