@164 In all my years of playing decent club cricket not one of my team mates or opponents would have ever bragged about being able to 'murder' a womans team because they would be laughed at for being wet.We judge our ability against other men.
Seriously, Heather Knight should have addressed the need for a fielding change as India persistently hit our bowlers to the same place over and over. I think England were complacent and somewhat cocky believing India would be a walkover. India have improved immensely and mustn't be written off the for the trophy.

@143 a decent mens club side would murder any of these womans teams..but we dont get coverage of mens club cricket..why not? cricket is a great game,but womans cricket isnt..
Oh! And maybe it's worth recalling that WG Grace was taught cricket - largely by his sisters!
@159 gtown - I agree, but just for the record, the Women's World Cricket Cup predates the men's by - two years, I think. Certainly the women were first, thanks to the pioneering R. Heyhoe-Flint.
@160Nothing looks more stupid than a man chasing his own hat.
I'm disgusted by the blatantly sexist BBC, I am not allowed to say a single thing about the fitness of the women's team, regardless of how obvious the conclusions are. You can on the contrary. come on here and say what you want about the men's team. This is sexism at it's very worst. The BBC are prepared to treat men in a disparaging way but not a word can be said about women.
Why are there so much criticism about women's cricket? Did you expect Sachin and Curtly!? They haven't had a chance to play cricket as long as us men did! Its a start. Its a good thing! Embrace it!
Only hys available at the moment. Is Reeza Hendricks Jason Roy's brother?
I hope the women have a good tournament so interest in participation increases and in turn standards are raised. Hopefully it then wont be long before its as entertaining as proper cricket.
RE-My 153 Post!,I hope this information helps You with Your apparent Confusion!,Also it IS Still Possible for England's Women to Progress even after this defeat!.
@, 136, markthelegendkid,Just to re-iterate for You!England Women HAVE lifted The World Cup & HAVE lifted the T20 World Cup!, India Women HAVE NOT lifted either of these Trophies!,
RE My @, 149, Post-I do not think the Women are bottlers but may not be good enough in this Tournament & Well Done to India's Women!.
