Women's Cricket World Cup - Australia

When a team has won six world cups, it does not really need an introduction now, does it? They are the obvious favourites. It does not matter what disputes are taking place at home. The team is on their own looks like and they are doing really well. Let the players be.
For the other teams, Australia will be the team to beat. There is a saying. If you want to get to the top fast, beat the one on top. Australia is that team. They are in a healthy place. They are the defending champions. They have all the confidence in the world.
Squad:
Meg Lanning (capt), Sarah Aley, Kristen Beams, Alex Blackwell (VC), Nicole Bolton, Ashleigh Gardner, Rachael Haynes, Alyssa Healy (wk), Jess Jonassen, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Belinda Vakarewa, Elyse Villani, Amanda-Jade Wellington.
Fixtures:
June 26 V West Indies
June 29 V Sri Lanka
July 2 V New Zealand
July 5 V Pakistan
July 9 V England
July 12 V India
July 15 V South Africa
Players to watch out for:
Meg Lanning. Captain. She is in peak form. She leads the team from the front by practicing what she preaches.
Ellyse Perry - She not only builds legacies but also guides the team to its victory. It is a win-win situation for all.
Belinda Vakarewa is a right-arm quick bowler with a mean hard pitch. She can turn the game around.
Alex Blackwell. Vice Captain. Specialist Batsmen. She has led the team before and shown tremendous success. She’s a good one.

Australia is top ranked. Yes. But they do have stiff competition in Traditional Rivals England along with New Zealand and a few others.

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
