Women's Cricket World Cup 2017

We are just fresh out of the ICC Champions Trophy that saw the world’s most unpredictable team, 8th in the ranking and not the top favourite, lift what is the second most coveted cup of the ICC.

We are now stepping into the World of Women. It is time for the Women’s Cricket World Cup. The tournament begins June 24th, 2017 witnessing the clash of eight teams. The finals will be played on 23rd July at Lord’s.

The ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup is the oldest and most prestigious tournament for women. Would you believe that the first world cup ever held was that for the women? And that it took place two entire years before the inaugural men’s cup?

It’s time that the Cricket champions of the Women’s teams of the World get what they deserve. They have proven that they are worth it.

While Women’s International Cricket has been playing since 1934, the inaugural world cup took place in 1973. The eleventh edition takes place this year in England & Wales. While Australia - six-time winner- leads the chart, England is second with three wins and one for New Zealand. India and West Indies’ best performance is their appearance in the finals.

The first four ranked teams automatically qualify. The other four teams earned their place after proving their mettle in the 2017 world cup qualifier.

The teams that are participating in the 2017 edition are Australia, England, New Zealand and West Indies ( the teams that automatically qualified being top four) and India, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Pakistan ( Fought for their place in the tournament recently in Feb 2017).

The venues are Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Somerset, and Gloucestershire with Lord’s hosting the Finals. A befitting climax to what could be a wonderful tournament.

Let the games begin.

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four.  Key Points  MI has never won their opener since 2013. This was Chennai's first win against MI in an opener of this T20 League  DRS used in the league for the first time  Bravo : It was a great team effort. I want to dedicate this win to the CSK fan, they have waited long for
