BBC Sport - Heather Knight: England captain welcomes parity for women at 2017 World Cup

Knight welcomes parity for World Cup

The International Cricket Council has announced that the eight teams that qualify for the 2017 Women's World Cup will be treated the same as their male counterparts at major tournaments.

It follows a media outcry at the different treatment of the sexes at the 2016 at the World Twenty20 in India.

The women will now enjoy business class travel, three to five-star accommodation and the same daily allowances which men's internationals enjoy.

England captain Heather Knight and former skipper Clare Connor, chair of the International Cricket Council Women's Committee, speak to BBC London's Sara Orchard about the development.
