The team has only had two losses, one against South Africa, and the other against Australia. While the Australian team has been playing particularly well, and has only had one loss against England.
England is currently at the top of the standings, with Australia trailing closely behind, each of these teams only having lost one match the entire ICC Women’s World Cup tournament.
