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.

Key Players: India - England

When there is nothing left, you will play for pride. That is what India has to do tomorrow. Considering the fact that the match is taking place in Mumbai. Do it for them. Do it for us.  England and Australia will meet each other at the finals on 31st March. India and England are more than likely to go in with the same playing eleven.
India Terribly low on morale, the team will now have to give it their all. They need to know that they are much better than this.

England The team has been doing really well since day one. They will now consider this as a practice match. But they will want to win and go to the finals with confidence. They were thumped by Australia earlier in what can be called as a one-sided game. They want to win this tomorrow.
