Australia Women created history on Sunday as the Meg Lanning-led side registered their 22nd consecutive win in ODI cricket to set an all-time record, eclipsing the 21 set by Ricky Ponting’s Australia in 2003. Lanning’s Australia have now not lost an ODI, remarkably, since October 2017.
Best Australian side ever?
They last lost in 2017

That’s incredible! We always used to talk about the Australian women’s and men’s team of the late 90s early 2000s but this Australian women’s team will go down as one of the greatest ever if not the greatest! ⭐️🔥💥 https://t.co/pChQ2dfIeX— Isa Guha (@isaguha) April 4, 2021
