Excellent effort by the Australian ladies and what a come back. Having "made sure" England didn't play in the final they now take on the West Indies again today, and are absolutely murdering them. *WINKS
@59 Doh! There is a separate page but all sports deserve their place on front page when it is the pinnacle of their game. Show some respect. Proper cricket fans appreciate the game at all levels junior, club, county & international. One Game - look it up on the ECB website: http://www.ecb.co.uk/ecb/one-game/
England should have been in the final it is as simple as that. The format of these competitions is such that at a certain point you can shall we say 'play in a certain way' end up with the opponent you want in the final. Witness WI beat Australia to reach the final but what odds them doing it again. Yep you got it!!!!!

Congratulations to Captain Charlotte Edwardsfor a well made century and those over 5000 runs in ODI.Well done.Dr. Cajetan Coelho
Third place is hard for such a good team. However I expect there are loads of people like me, WHO ARE VERY PROUD OF THEM!
Why are we even comparing the ladies with the men?Anyway, I will creep back into the nice warm bed next to the good warm and soft lady and when she is ready later on I will cook her a full english breakfast.Have a nice day folks and enjoy watching the weak Australian mens team toiling in India getting taken to the cleaners by an A team.Didn't we England just win a series over there?
Colin @ 54 and 39, are you not comparing oranges with lemons? England women often play good club sides, if you are so confident of your own and your clubs ability, why not put your money where your mouth is and challenge them to charity match?The TMS commentators, many of whom have been professional players for their country, are impressed by our women, so why aren't you?
@39Brunt bowls at around 65 mph. In the clubs round me, that is 3rd XI standard. To put it into perspective, Monty often bowls at over 60 mph
It was interesting to hear Clare (have I got that right) Conner during the commentary, that the ICC women's committee will be discussing various topics during their debrief from the WC; it's structure included. I am not accusing anyone, but it does seem possible to 'engineer' a weaker opponent for the final once you've already booked your ticket. Is that fair? Whatever, well done girls.
Good job, girls. The best of luck for the rest of the year.
I haven't taken much notice of women's cricket before but the clips that I have seen on the news impressed me. Full marks to all these women cricketers for their enthusiasm and skill. Long may it flourish.
