Editor's Take: Women’s World Cup So Far I

We have see quite a few good matches, some close ones even. The Women’s World Cup has proven to be entertaining on its own merit. Let’s see what has happened so far.

Each team has played three games.

Starting with the team on the top. India. Three wins from three matches. India beat England, West Indies and Pakistan. Against England, Mandhana played brilliant innings with her 90, closely followed by PG Raut with 86 and captain’s 71. Deepti Sharma is the highest run-getter with 584 on the board so far, this year. “It’s not over yet… I want to win the World Cup for India”, says Smriti Mandhana. Considering the form of the team today, it does not seem too hard. They are off to a flying start. Will they finish with a bang? Time will tell.

Second on the team is Australia. They have also won three out of three. They have defeated Sri Lanka, New Zealand, and West Indies. Defending Champs and six-time winners of the cup, they are the obvious favourites this year as well. They have got all the departments working together really well. Ellyse Perry is clearly the star. She loves the limelight and deserves all the attention she can get and more.

South Africa comes third with two wins out of three matches. The third was a N/R. This team, despite being third today, still has the best run rate of +2.1230. England being England, the run rate could always find its place in the tournament. Hence, South Africa has that advantage. They beat Pakistan and West Indies. The match against New Zealand was canceled.

England has won two matches and lost one. They are placed fourth on the table. England lost to India but defeated Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Sarah Taylor is back on the team, where she belongs. Nat Sciver also seems to have a good grip on her game. The loss against India will not dampen their hopes of winning the cup this year. They do seem to have what it takes.

The bottom four - New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and West Indies really need to pull up their socks. At least NZ has one win and one NR making it only one loss. The other three teams have lost all three matches played.

The finals are still very far away. Anything can happen. We have seen that from the ICC Champions Trophy. Right now, each team has played three matches each. A lot more action is coming your way.
Give your women all the love and support they need and deserve to see this through. Show it on our app as well.

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 …
