The All-Time Top Female Cricketers

The top cricket players in the world will soon demonstrate how much the sport has advanced in recent years when the Women’s World Cup begins in England. But how do the greatest people of today stack up against the past? The top female cricket players of all time in ICC one day ranking are listed here. While taking into account the influence these players had beyond the field too though, viewers were able to choose a variety of cricketers first from the early years of women’s cricket to the current forefront t Given that Jhulan Goswami, Lindsay Reeler, and Claire Taylor were all left off, in addition to Meg Lanning, Ellyse Perry, and Suzie Bates, this made it difficult to build the list.

Cathryn Fitzpatrick (Australia)

Cathryn Fitzpatrick, one of the best and quickest quick bowlers in the history of the game, is the only Australian to have taken more international wickets. Jhulan Goswami is the only player to have taken more shots overall. She contributed to Australia’s World Cup victories in 2005 and 1997 and helped the country make the final throughout 2001 with her 60 wickets in only 13 Test matches and 180 in 109 ODIs. She was the oldest player to accomplish that milestone she takes five for 29 versus India in such an ODI in 2006 at the age of 37. She wasn’t only good at getting wickets; she was also quite difficult to score on, with just an economy rate of only 1.91 in Tests & 3.01 in ODIs.

Mithali Raj (India)

Raj has indeed been India’s batting giant for more than 8,000 runs – and counting – since she began her career in 1999 versus Ireland with a hundred. By hitting 214 versus England in such a Test match just at age of only 19, she smashed the previous record. In 2005, she led India to their first-and-only-ever World Cup final, and she’s led India in more games compared to any other woman. When Indians struggled at the 2000 Tournament when she became sick, it became clear how important she was to them. Given her prodigious amassing of runs, it’s a little surprise she’s referred to as the “Tendulkar of Indian women’s cricket.”

Myrtle Maclagan (England)

When England faced Australia in the inaugural women’s Test in 1934, Myrtle Maclagan participated. A year later, she scored the first hundred in the format. She only played 14 Tests since World War Two cut short her career. She managed to score 1,007 runs at a 41.96 average while also taking 60 wickets using her off breaks. She led England in two Test matches in 1951 and was unquestionably the first outstanding all-arounder in the history of the sport. When she ultimately decided to quit playing in 1963, she was 52.

Betty Wilson (Australia)

Betty Wilson was considered one of the greatest athletes of all time throughout her playing career, according to many. She had to wait till World War Two to begin her international career, but despite playing in just 11 Test matches, she broke lot of records. She was a true all-rounder. The very first hat trick in women’s Test cricket was part of that effort, which resulted in a 7-7 draw with Pakistan. She is one of only two women—the other being Belinda Clark—to have been inducted into the Australian Cricket of Fame.

Debbie Hockley (New Zealand)

Debbie Hockley, who played for New Zealand for four decades and averaged 52.04 in Matches and 41.89 in ODIs, is still one of the best players to have to represent the country (and two millennia). She assisted the White Ferns to qualify for The World cup in 2000 and was awarded the game’s most valuable player there in the 1997 World Cup game. She led during 27 ODIs while serving as captain, in addition to the six Test matches she oversaw. She was the 1st player to play 100+ ODIs, record 4,000 ODI runs, play over 40 World Cup games, and play in 100 ODIs. She also became the 1st woman to be elected as the president of New Zealand Cricket, which she did in 2016.

Stafanie Taylor (West Indies)

Stafanie Taylor, who is regarded as the game’s strongest all-rounder right now, has been instrumental in the West Indies’ ascent to prominence. Although she has made over 200 appearances for her country, she hasn’t ever played in a Test match, which illustrates the direction women’s cricket has gone in. She averages about 45 in ODIs & over 35 in T20Is at the moment. She is a strong ball striker. She has been in the team almost nonstop since making her debut at the age of 17, and she has taken nearly 200 wickets using her off breaks. She is also the 1st  woman to already have scored a century & taken 4 wickets during an ODI. She was indeed the captain and driving force behind the West Indies team that won the 2016 ICC Women’s World T20, and she is the first player in the game, male or female, to have simultaneously held the top spot in both the ICC batting and bowling rankings.

Sarah Taylor (England)

Most of the women on this list will still have appeared alongside their male teammates as they progressed through their careers, although Sarah Taylor almost reached the second XI for Sussex in 2013 and went on to become the 1st woman to play graded cricket within Australia in 2015. Taylor has done well for England, winning the Cup & World T20 in 2009, and she is the youngest player to score 1,000 ODI runs. She is also the finest wicketkeeper the women’s game has ever produced. She has scored around 6,000 runs for the nation in international play despite taking a few pauses from the sport, and she has also grabbed several stunning catches while standing up to a stump.

Charlotte Edwards (England)

Since Edwards’ retirement in 2016, England has truly struggled, which demonstrates how crucial she would have been to her team. She began her career at the young age of 15, and as she matured as a batter, she surpassed all other English players in terms of runs scored in international cricket. She accomplished most of it admirably while leading her side. Between 2005 through 2016, she led England as their captain, helping them win three Ashes championships, the ICC World T20 in 2009, as well as the World Cup. She became the first player, male or female, to surpass 2,500 runs during T20Is and once held the record for the most ODI score with a 173-run performance. She continued to play domestic cricket after her international career was over, finishing with an average of 44.10 in tests, 38.16 in ODIs, & 32.97 in T20s.
