If Australia is successful in winning the title in the T20 World Cup final against South Africa in Cape Town, not only will it become a hat-trick but Lanning will also become the most successful captain.
History will be written in world cricket on Sunday 26 February. The final of the Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 is to be played in South Africa. History is sure to be created in this match to be held in Cape Town – no matter who wins. If the host South Africa wins, it will be the first World Cup title in its history. If Australia wins, even then the record will be made. Her captain Meg Lanning will make this record. (ICC)
If Australia captures the trophy in this final between South Africa and Australia in Cape Town, Meg Lanning will become the world’s most successful cricket captain, be it women’s cricket or men’s cricket. (ICC)
In this case, Meg Lanning will leave behind the record of nobody else but Ricky Ponting, the most successful captain of his own country. Ponting and Lanning have so far won 4-4 titles of ICC tournaments. (ICC)
If Lanning wins this World Cup final, it will be his fifth ICC title. Lanning has so far won one ODI World Cup (2022) and three T20 World Cup (2014, 2018, 2020) titles. Whereas Ponting won two ODI World Cups (2003, 2007) and two Champions Trophy (2006, 2009). (ICC)
Not only this, if Australia wins this final, Mag Lanning will become the first captain to score a hat-trick in the T20 World Cup. In 2018 and 2020, Australia won the titles under his captaincy. (ICC)
