Women's Cricket World Cup - England

Three-time winner of the world cup - 1973, 1993, and 2009. The women’s Cricket Team hopes to add more to their kitty. Being the hosts of this prestigious tournament, they do have the home advantage.

The women’s team is currently ranked second. Ten members of the 2013 squad are on the current team. Experience is truly valued.

The Squad:

Heather Knight (capt), Tammy Beaumont (wk), Katherine Brunt, Georgia Elwiss, Jenny Gunn, Alex Hartley, Danielle Hazell, Beth Langston, Laura Marsh, Anya Shrubsole, Nat Sciver, Sarah Taylor (wk), Fran Wilson, Lauren Winfield, Danni Wyatt.


Fixtures:

June 24 V India
June 27 V Pakistan
July 2 V Sri Lanka
July 5 V South Africa
July 9 V Australia
July 12 V New Zealand
July 15 V West Indies


Players to look out for:

Nat Sciver can hit big. She is what the team will depend on to get the run rate racing. Her thirst for runs along with her ability
Tammy Beaumont - First English Woman to hit back-to-back ODI tons, she could be the game changer for England.
Katherine Brunt is the wicket-taker of the team. She is one of the three players on this current squad who lifted the 2009 world cup.
Anya Shrubsole is the highest wicket taker in T20. She can also pitch in with the ball and give the team the breakthroughs.

Two of the times they won, they were the hosts. England could do it again. But then, that’s what we had said about the Men’s team during the ICC Champions Trophy held earlier this month. Cricket and life - very unpredictable.

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.

Champions Trophy - India is the team to beat

They say tough times brings teams together.  They say adversity brings out the best in us.  Looks like that is what is happening to Team India in the ongoing Champions Trophy in the UK.   AlI the talk about match fixing and spot fixing and conflict of interest seems to be bringing out the best in team India.  I am writing this blog just ahead of the semi finals where India will play Sri Lanka.  But got to say this - looks like team India is firing on all cylinders.  I have never seen the Indian team perform so commandingly well in a tournament before - especially one played outside the sub-continent.  All aspects of the Indian team seems to be clicking well and India is clearly the best team in the tournament so far.
Our bowling is superb, with the exception of Ishanth Sharma.   Bhuvaneshwar Kumar continues to impress one and all - the amazing thing is the carry he gets even when he is bowling around 130 kmph.  I don't think it is because of the wickets alone - I feel the carry he …
