India bowled tightly, West Indies took thirty six overs to reach one hundred runs, their total was never going to be good enough.

Yes, I agree that with some good cricket being played it is a great shame that there are so few spectators at the games. If it wasn't for the organised school trips it would be a very sad crowd. Hopefully more will be tempted to pay their £10 tomorrow for England v Sri Lanka. Members can even get in free.

I took my two kids to a T20 doubleheader Eng v South Africa at Northampton a few years ago. Very disappointed with the crowd, lack of atmosphere and, to be honest, quality of the cricket that day.

But saw Natalie Sciver's 137 on the TV earlier this week - seriously impressive, best woman's innings I've ever seen.

The partnership between India captain Mithali Raj and the 19 year old opener Smriti Mandhana was some of the most attractive batting I've seen at Taunton this year.

Also hugely impressed with the Indian leg spinner Yadav, her bowling was pace of the ball in the extreme she could not have been bowling much more than 30mph but it was very effective and so difficult to get away.

Isn't there a Male Indian bowler Yadav as well? It will be interesting tomorrow to have a look at the pace bowlers and how they have moved on. There was a lot of talk about A 6 foot odd young pace bowler in the Aussie team last time the women were down in Taunton - she'd be about 20 now.

I don't think there is any connection with those two. winking smiley

The Indian leg spinner Yadav is so tiny, I read somewhere she is under five feet tall.

England women doing very well at Bristol, Taylor and Beaumont both pasted 100 not out, England score 271 for 1 off 40 overs.

A lot of children in the ground like at Taunton but a lot of empty seats.

Sarah Taylor is on absolute fire and has taken over from Charlotte Edwards as the greatest living Englishwoman.

(Sorry, Mrs May, you're not even in the top 10,000)

Hoping that the Windies turn up tomorrow against the Indians at Taunton because it is going to be a vey short game if not.

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.
