A competitive, suspenseful final is the best one can hope for in any sport. And that is exactly what the fine ladies from England and India gave the world. Well done, ladies!
375 Boundaries for ladies are generally min 60m as they were yesterday, couple of the 6 hits were shown on big screen over 70m.
389 I am a MCC member and was there like many other members in the members and friends stands which were full to the rafters with their children and other family members.
@, 442, old_one_eye,I think it is Disgusting, and wish they would Boycott upcoming World Cup in Protest!, Alternatively i hope they intentionally lose every game they play!.
383 Cricket is played internationally all over the Globe in seven separate Div, including Israel, Portugal,Norway,USA, etc etc it's just the test playing countries are small in number.
412 At grass roots level it is not a gender sport, just men and women boys and girls playing cricket often together in the same side. Cricket is one of the very few ports where genders mix at junior and adult level.
442 ECB may have it's faults but have worked extremely hard for this success, and central contacts for women and have put money, time,coaches chance to shine schemes etc at grass route level over the last 10 years culminating in yesterdays win. Cricket for girls and women is one of the fastest growing sports in the World and the ECB is well aware how easy it would be to lose the legacy potential.
438 HarryQuite the opposite - I have really loved the tournament but this is sport and pressure does funny things as GB loves to say and India had it in the bag - I don't think England forced their hands they just hung in there and were starting to show the effects of pressure too - bowling way to much at the legs - dropping chances. Exciting spectacle but great cricket?
re 431 How little you know about cricket be it men's or ladies.Been a professional cricket coach over 40 years and tell you the England team is equivalent to Premier Club level, most of the team play for Premier men's Club sides Sarah Taylor played mens Sussex second eleven.A lot of County ladies play for men's club sides first second and third xi's depending on the clubs and players ability level
Though one can be sure that their hospitality budgets will remain extravagant...
Utterly delighted by the triumph of this England team as I am, I'm sorry to pour some cold water on all this celebrating; but it is conspicuous that today their counterparts in my other sport Rugby Union - also current World Champs - have had their professional contracts slashed. Be careful folks, when talking about turning points and watersheds. The blazers are still there to choke the joy out us
Ganesh_India, Vikram, and all the other Subcontinent lovers & England Haters, You're Girls took one Hell of a Beating!,No But Seriously!, I think that The English Women Should get more Coverage than the Men because they WIN Global Trophies Regularly!, and Sincerest Congrats to India's Women!, They so nearly Re-Wrote History!.
