Women's World Cup

Post by Mad for Chelsea on Fri 23 Jun 2017, 2:06 pm

This gets under way tomorrow, and I reckon deserves a thread of its own. It will be fully televised, which is great.

England have had a couple of good wins in the warm-ups, including thrashing NZ. They have however lost opening batswoman Laura Winfield for at least the first game, with a wrist injury. TBH it doesn't sound too good (protective case while assessing the damage) so she may well be gone for the tournament. If so, that's a big blow, as her opening partnership with Tammy Beaumont has been the strong basis on which England have built their more aggressive approach since a disappointing showing at the T20 a couple of years ago. They do though welcome back Sarah Taylor, who took time out from the game after that tournament, and has scored some runs in the warm-ups.

Not too sure what sort of form the other teams are in. I see Pakistan beat WI in a warm-up which is a bit of a surprise, and Elyse Perry reckons the Aussies haven't quite been hitting their straps, though that was before their latest warm-up where they secured a thumping win.

Disappointing loss for England against India yesterday - four run outs is unacceptable whatever standard of cricket you're playing

The team we played (got thrashed by) yesterday said their oppo managed 6 run-outs last week. One of our tail-enders fell to a direct hit (part of a mostly self-inflicted team hat trick - when your captain who's umpiring gives the last recognised bat out LBW to a ball that pitches a foot outside leg picard ) due to not grounding his bat picard ...


Good first up wins for NZ and SA over the weekend too

Cracking batting by Nat Sciver today in England's comprehensive victory over Pakistan. Those who think there isn't enough power in the women's game should have a look at a replay of Sciver's three consecutive 6s.

A much improved performance by England yesterday, led by fine centuries from Knight and Sciver. Both were very good at rotating the strike against the spinners (seemed like very few dot balls) with the odd big shot too. Sciver hits the ball really hard as corporal says. Knight played a fine supporting role, which I'm sure guildford would have appreciated Wink. Much needed bounce back after an ordinary performance in their first game.

A 40-ball 63no from Healey gets Aus through to 290/8 - a tough chase for Pakistan

England have lost 3 wickets in 4 balls in the 48th, 349/5 with 12 balls left & Wyatt & Knight new to the crease.

Beaumont (148) & Taylor (147) rather dominate the scorecard


India 219/5 after 48

Morning all.

A cracking game yesterday, going down to the last ball, and a fine win for England. Two rather contrasting innings. England tried to keep the run-rate up as much as possible, but lost a few too many wickets, and it took a brilliant partnership by Brunt and Gunn to set Australia 260. Australia went more old school, setting a platform and keeping wickets in hand, but Villani's struggles, particularly in a powerplay yielding just 16 runs, left them with a bit too much to do at the death. Brunt bowled two excellent overs at the end, and also took a fine catch in the last over, so was well deserving of her player of the match award.

The round robin format makes for a rather long and dragging schedule IMO, but hopefully this contest will ignite the tournament.

Wickets tumbling now in quick succession as Gunn and Brunt go in the space of three balls to leave England 277/8. Important England now bat out the remaining 10 balls and take what they can get. 285 or so still a pretty good score on what looks quite a slow pitch.

England do just bat out the overs, with the help of a couple of fielding lapses from NZ, but NZ pulled that back well in the last three overs, as England finish on 284/9. Still looks a good score though, and well played Beaumont and Sciver to get them there.

England finish on 284/9, there was a little in the pitch early for Tahuhu (who is seriously quick), but the seamers struggled late on

India posted 226/7, & SA are 31/2 off 7 at lunch chasing 102 - they'll be looking to push their NRR up in case they finish level with NZ

Priest hits three of her first four balls for four in NZ's reply, but then has what is frankly a bit of a hack across the line and is cleaned up by Shrubsole. NZ 14/1 after 2 overs.

Cracking inventive "natmeg" shot played by Nat Sciver in the England innings - never seen that done before - flicked the ball neatly on the legside - the ball intentionally going between her legs.

NZ in a spot of bother now at 119 - 4.

I seem to remember Steve Smith playing something similar in a game against England a while back but maybe not exactly the same one. Love the name "natmeg" though, hope it'll stick Very Happy

Also, there's a button next to the "quote" button that says "thanks". Is this new? What does it do?

Knight brings herself into the attack, and immediately gets Martin, playing on attempting a big shot over the leg side. Martin scored 26, which is more than twice as much as the third highest England score (11), the difference being that their top two scorers went on to make 129 and 90+. The importance of converting starts.

Brunt gets that one. Bermingham the latest NZ player to get in and get out, mistiming a pull shot off Gunn to Brunt in the deep. NZ now 6 down, and England well on course for their fifth win in a row after their surprise opening defeat.

As Kiwi says, looks to be shaping up to a virtual QF between India and NZ for the last SF spot.

Gunn with another wicket. This one keeps a bit low, and sneaks under Kasperek's heave. Pitch as I said earlier not the quickest, and getting a bit tired. Last rites being called now surely with NZ 7 down.

After a reasonable start from the Kiwis, England have been well on top - shows that wickets and pressure are the keys to defending a good if not outstanding total. Looking at the individual scores, I wonder if it isn't the easiest wicket to get in and start hitting on - England had a century and a 90 and not a lot else, while NZ have had a few get in and out without making a match-defining score.

NZ well on terms with England for a solid chunk of both innings in this match. Essentially the difference was that England built a really big partnership whereas NZ started to lose wickets steadily pretty much from the point they looked to be in with a decent chance of chasing down the total.

Sciver on cracking form with the bat again for England - they look to have quite a lot of power at the top of the batting order.

Sciver is different gravy to most other players in women's world cricket at the moment in the rate she scores at. A career ODI strike rate of 106 is obscene.

She has hit more sixes in 32 ODI innings that Charlotte Edwards did in 93 T20I innings. Not a slight on Charlotte, just an indication of how fast the women's game is moving on.

Would pay just to watch Sciver and Sarah Taylor bat - two ridiculous talents, so good to see Taylor back in the fold after her issues

It's been a good tournament so far, although I still feel the format is a bit bloated.

England have bounced back well from a shock opening loss with some impressive performances, particularly with the bat (4 centuries already, that's probably more than the men have managed in the last x* tournaments combined).

Australia's batting has looked very strong in general, chasing down totals with ease, but misjudged one against England.

SA have been the surprise package for me, playing some very good stuff, and been especially impressive with the ball. The signs were there in the warm-ups where they knocked over the WI for 60-odd.

Speaking of which, as reigning T20 champs, the WI have been poor.

NZ have maybe been a bit below what' I'd expect, and they face a tricky do-or-die match against India. Looking forward to that one.

* off the top of my head, I can remember Moeen getting one in the last tournament, KP got one in a previous one, not sure who else TBH...
