Batters with most tons at No.4 and lower in Women’s ODIs

England’s Nat Sciver has the most tons at No.4 and lower in Women’s ODIs.

Nat Sciver 4

All of Nat Sciver’s 4 ODI centuries have come while batting at number 4 or lower which is the most by any player in women’s ODIs.

Her most recent century came in the 2022 ODI world cup match against Australia where England were batting in response to Australia’s 310.

Batting at number 4, Sciver stroked a quickfire ton but even that was not enough to take England over the line as they lost the match by 12 runs.

“From the Ashes we’ve wanted to make a shift as batters, a shift in our mindset really, and bringing that intent a bit more which we had done during the warm-up game,” Sciver said after the defeat. “So to bring it out against Australia was really important and everyone did their job in terms of that. I felt like we were [winning], we were going to get it. The first ball [of the last over], I wasn’t really sure as to what lengths she [Jonassen] was going to bowl, obviously keep it tight to me, but I felt like if I got that one away, it would have happened a bit easier.”

“Katherine had also come in and played spin really well so, I mean, that catch to get Katherine out was pretty special. That goes through her hand and goes for four, it might be different. Us all agreeing amongst ourselves and committing to that was really important. It feels frustrating, but also really encouraging. From where we were at the end of the Ashes, I think we were in a pretty low spot, but to be able to turn that around in a couple of weeks is really important. To be able to take that into the rest of the tournament – I think we’ve already seen a lot of high-scoring games – so it’s important for us to do.”

Harmanpreet Kaur 3

Including her amazing century against Australia in the 2017 ODI world cup semi-final and the one against West Indies in the 2022 ODI world cup final, Harmanpreet Kaur has scored 3 centuries while batting at number 4 and lower in women’s ODIs.

Stafanie Taylor 2

West Indies’ Stafanie Taylor is at the third place in the list of batters to have scored the most centuries while batting at number 4 and lower in women’s ODIs.

Justifying hours of watching sports by scribbling down a few logical lines that might just about hold your interest. Was not talented enough to make it as a professional cricketer, so the next best logical option was to enroll in a Mass Communication course, and write about sports instead. Because, what else is there to write about in this world, right?
