Defending champions Australia beat New Zealand by a massive 97 runs in their opening match of the Women's T20 World Cup.

Ashleigh Gardner and Alyssa Healy guided them to these victories with the ball and bar respectively. 

This win also extended their skipper Meg Lanning's lead at the top of a very exclusive list. 

She has won the most matches as a captain in the Women's T20 World Cup!

Lanning actually topped this group when Australia beat India in the final of the 2020 Women's T20 World Cup. 

The win over New Zealand was her 20th victory as Australia's skipper in this marquee tournament. 

Second is former England skipper Charlotte Edwards, with 18 wins in this competition. 

New Zealand's Suzie Bates and West Indies' Stafanie Taylor have won 10 matches each as captain.

Lanning scored 41 against the Kiwis as they set a target that was unassailable for New Zealand.
