Bobstan: my comment allows for Mrs M not to be in the first 100,000,000; unsurprisingly she isn't.

If NZ and SA both win their matches today, England will slip to fifth in the table, albeit with a game n hand, making it very important to win at least two of their remaining three matches.

Lovely innings by the well-named Devine for New Zealand today hitting the ball as hard as many men. Some excellent shots and sixes. NZ and South Africa will be upset if their earlier game is the only one rained-off, losing one of them a point, of course. Not a bad crowd, considering earlier apathy; two or three hundred, I would think.

Absolutely brilliant win for England at Bristol. They should safely qualify now, shouldn't they?

What a match to watch, one of the most exciting women's watch I have watched.

Australia pressured England all the way.

England go to the top of the table after being in fifth before the match.

What a magnificent game of cricket today, played in an excellent spirit and in front of a near-full house. Give me women's cricket over T20 any day.
Our lass Anya did not have a starring role, but bowled a useful spell and made the tactically inspired decision to drop a sitter off Elyse Villani, who could not get her timing right and went on to use up 31 balls scoring 14.
Separating Kathy Brunt and Jenny Gunn for Player of the Match must have been tricky. I'd have liked to see it awarded jointly (to recognise not just the importance of their joint contribution but how much of it was in tandem), but perhaps there's no provision for that.
(Edited because one sentence sounded a bit patronising).

Fantastic game of cricket, there has been some excellent cricket played in the tournament so far but up until this match it had lacked a really close game. Having said that England should have won the game much easier if only their fielding had been better, the fielding is something that England really need to work on as they to date have been one of the poorer fielding teams in the tournament and another day that could cost them in a really tight game.

Commentators raving today about Natalie Sciver's "invention" of a new shot, when she tapped the ball off the face of the bat between her feet to backward square for a couple, and babbling about the need to find a name for it. Some budding genius on social media responded with "the Natmeg".
Surely to any student of the game's history (even if none of us have actually seen it played), it is the "draw", much in favour in the 19th century and played by WG Grace among others?

I have a feeling that Ranji was the greatest exponent, if not the inventor, of the draw.

Someone dressed as a banana is upsetting the (jobsworth) stewards. A case for the peelers, surely.

See the draw stroke played here albeit by a man:

[www.cricket.com.au]

Difficult to tell whether or not it was deliberately played between the legs until you see close up towards the end.

So the World Cup final on Sunday, at a sold-out Lord's, will be England v India, who knocked out Australia today.

Patriotism aside, I cant help thinking an India win would be so good for the women's game, not only in India but worldwide.

McEnroe would probably rank her 700th in the world, but I'd place her a lot higher.

Let's hope for a cracking final today, worthy of what has been an excellent tournament. I note that five officials are listed for the match; it's a pity that all of them appear to be male. (It's not just the BBC that gets such things wrong!)

Female commentators on the BBC team today - wonder if they get the same fee

LOL, I'm not aware that women are under-represented on television, are they? Quite the opposite, I believe.

In Norway all salaries, for everyone, are recorded on a publicly accessible online database. That would be interesting in this country..

My comment about the role of female officials in today's match related to cricket administration and not to television (of which I know very little, though I believe it has been invented).

Sorry, LOL, I misunderstood. I thought you were saying the BBC and the ICC were guilty of women being under-represented.

There were female umpires in the earlier round of matches.

This match could go either way.

India need 11 from 11 ball with one wicket remaining.
