Quite remarkable. (The John Motson voice is optional.)

Winning by ten wickets with three overs to spare sound almost Somersetesque.

Can't deny it, Bagpuss. Mercurial is the middle name of both teams.

Western Storm play Surrey Stars in the first match of the KSL finals day tomorrow. The winner plays Southern Vipers in the final.

Meanwhile congratulations to Somerset's women's team on gaining promotion to Division 1.

Well done to Western Storm in their 7 wicket win tonight in the Super League final.

Great innings of 72 by Rachel Priest.

After losing their first two matches it was good to see England winning the third 50 over match.

Australia now lead by 4 points to 2, the test match win will be important because it carries more points for a win.

It's a real pity England didn't bat first on winning the toss in the previous match. I can reliably say that England would have won that match had they done so - and nobody can prove me wrong.

I agree LoL - I think England look the better overall side, just underprepared in the first match after warm-ups were rained off, then bad toss decision in the second.

Four women's T20 games over 2 days at Taunton next summer (20th and 23rd June),three including England. Intestingly free to club and both club and T20 members,but T20 only members will have to pay.

Free with Club membership, not for T20 member#hip.

You would have thought this would have provided a bit more incentive to people considering buying a T20 membership

That was a thoroughly brilliant win by the England Women today and they end the drawn series on a high, having lost only one of the last five matches in the series. In my view they could well have won the Test Match, had there been a fifth day.

Agree LoL, tho I think the game that got away was the first ODI when they could still easily have won it despite going in under-prepared after their warm-up games were rain-ruined. Anyway, virtually nothing between the two teams.

The Aussie Channel 9 team are getting huge stick after stating there are no women commentators in the Ashes series because they only use people who have been in the competition they are commentating on

Seems Mark Nicholas got a bye from that rule and it didn"t seem to stop Ian Healey commentating in the Women's version. Typical Aussie media is the comment. They may have misinterpreted the backlash from those who now follow Women's cricket at the top level.

I have been immensely impressed by the quality of commentary and entertainment provided by the handful of female commentators we are now privileged to listen to. Ebony R-B is a joy, Alison Mitchell thoroughly professional, Isa Guha insightful and amusing, as are the various Australians we have heard recently. Isa Sthalekar is paAnrticularly pleasing on the ear and Mel Jones is another serious professional. Charlotte Edwards always has a light and friendly touch, though the art of summarising appears not to come easily to her. However, she improves from match to match (reminding me of how Lineker matured into a seriously good broadcaster after a rather tentative start).

And there is not a curmudgeon among them (it takes one to know one, according to Bobstan).

My favourite sports broadcasters (commentators, summarisers, whatever) have long been John Arlott, Peter Alliss and Eleanor Oldroyd. Aside from her being an Arsenal supporter, Ms Oldroyd knows a heck of a lot more about our game than the majority of male commentators (many of whom have played a lot of Tests, though you'd never know it).
