2 wickets in hand.
RRR is 11.33.
Still 119 to get.

Tough, though Blackwell is still in there.

9 down now.
108 to get off 55.

Not going to happen for Blackwell, I think.

Australia, reigning champions, are virtually OUT of this World Cup.

Now who'd have thunk it?

Blackwell is playing a blinder of a knock here.
True Aussie spirit.
That which the men's team has long forgotten.

It's over!

Fine knock by Blackwell comes to an end.

245 all out.

India are through to the finals.

They'll lose to England but this was a fine performance from them.

I can't stand BCCI men's side but it's really heart-warming to see Indian women's team win.
These are not rockstars at all - not even Mithali.
How many people even knew the names of these players before this tournament?

Even now, how many know their names?

Even I only knew a few names, to be honest.
So you can imagine awareness level of others.

That is why I'm so happy they've done well.

Australian supporters were worried about Villanis Form but I guess bad starts ruin their chances not easy to chase 259 in 35 when you loose top 3 including Lanning

Probably she got out earlier because Pandey and Gaekwad has 30 balls each Left if Blackwell gets their early.Ozzie knows their last chance when except ponam all top bowler completed their Quote of 10 overs each.

Hey but what a fine stand by last wicket?
76 in 7 overs mainly from Veda K.'s toothless spell
But India were lucky that ponam sends some tight spell with 7
Runs per over when Ozzie need 16/18 per over. Upto 49th overs.

Re: ICC Woman's World Cup 2017

Postby Misty » Sat Jul 22, 2017 2:44 pm

What's the big deal about this final?

This World Cup final, between England and India, will probably be the most watched women's cricket game ever. More than 50 million people around the globe have already tuned in to watch this tournament, which is an 80% increase from 2013, and in India, the world's largest consumer of cricket, there has been a 47% hike in audience participation.

This World Cup has already had two sellout crowds, and the final is set to join that list, with more than 26,500 people expected at the ground. Since the hosts, England, and the most popular side, India, have made the finals, interest in women's cricket has hit a peak


So what is the Women's World Cup?

It is a 50-over tournament that is considered the centrepiece of the women's cricket calendar. An interesting piece of trivia is that it has actually been around since before the men's World Cup. The first edition was in 1973, this is the 11th, it began on June 24 with eight teams, and now has come down to two.

When and where is this final being played?

Sunday, 23 July, at 10:30 local time (9:30 GMT, 15:00 Indian Standard Time) at Lord's cricket ground, known as the home of cricket, in London.

Who are the favourites to win?

England have been one of the strongest sides throughout women's cricket history and are currently second, behind Australia, in the International Cricket Council's team rankings. They have won the World Cup three times, and since they are also playing in home conditions, are considered favourites. There are vulnerabilities though, which were apparent in the semi-final when South Africa instigated a middle-order collapse that forced the match into the final-over.

India began the tournament ranked fourth but have beaten all the sides ranked above them on the way to the final, including Australia, the six-time champions. India have never won the Women's World Cup, and this is only their second final.

Harmanpreet Kaur goes inside out over cover Getty Images

Why are Indians particularly excited about this final?

For the first time, all of India's games at a Women's World Cup have been televised or streamed live on the Internet. The team also had creditable victories over England and New Zealand in the group stages, but it was in the semi-finals that they grabbed headlines. Harmanpreet Kaur played what is already being described by some as the best innings in the history of women's cricket, smashing 171 not out off 115 balls. This is also the last World Cup for two of India's greatest cricketers, Jhulan Goswami, who has the record for most ODI wickets, and Mithali Raj, who in this tournament became the highest ODI run-getter.

Who are the players to watch out for?

India's Harmanpreet Kaur, one of the most destructive hitters in the game, a reputation solidified by her heroics in the semi-final.

England's Natalie Sciver, whose "Nat-meg" - a flick shot played between the legs to yorker-length deliveries - has had world cricket sit up and take notice. With 318 runs and 7 wickets so far, she is among the prime contenders for the Player of the Tournament award.

So if this final is so big, the women's game must have come a long way in the past decade, right?

Absolutely. This is the first Women's World Cup in which every team has featured centrally contracted professionals. Both England and Australia now have franchise-based Twenty20 leagues, which give the players more opportunities to earn a living. The number of runs per game is going up, with batsmen capable of hitting big sixes, which is always a draw. Fielding standards have also improved immensely, with direct hits and spectacular catches a common feature. Also, while Australia, England and New Zealand have traditionally dominated the women's game, South Africa and India proved themselves capable of matching those teams in this tournament, which could signal the dawn of a more competitive era

India's presence at Lord's in the Sunday final of the 2017 Women's World Cup will make it the most watched game in the history of women's cricket. Harmanpreet Kaur and Thursday's semi-final result have decided that even before a ball is bowled. There are other, colder, truths hovering around the England v India but in India, the post-Thursday rush will not subside easily.

On the ground, it is not yet clear whether Harmanpreet is fully fit to play on Sunday. And an Indian victory, despite the euphoria of beating defending champions Australia, is far from a given. Yes, they upset England in their tournament opener. But England are far stronger because they get more game time than the Indian girls, and have had their own stirring, euphoric run to the a sixth final. They are on familiar turf, plus the commitment and energies the ECB has directed towards the women's game over the last decade - since the men's and women's game came under one board - has been far greater than the BCCI's. Fact.

Harmanpreet's innings could, however, be a game-changer for women. It was not only the most important innings by an Indian woman, it could end up being the most important innings for her tribe everywhere. The innings rose above its context and specifics and has become a disruptor and a creator. On the day, along with Australian plans, it stood established notions on their head. It has already created enormous possibility and an energised future for the women's game in India and the rest of the world.

We have seen it happen before, and already there are many comparisons of the WWC17 semi-final victory to India's winning the World Cup in 1983. Many see a reflection of Kapil Dev's 175 not out at Tunbridge Wells. That innings is in folkore and embedded into what followed after, but no one other than the people at the ground witnessed it. There is no recording available of the innings, as the BBC was on strike. Had we not been watching Harmanpreet on TV, her shots would not have rung around the cricketing world. She did the right things at the right place at the right time - but in her case, she had to be seen to be believed.

Shades of Kapil: Harmanpreet hit 20 fours and 7 sixes

Today Harmanpreet is everywhere. Never mind the tweets from famous men and "the boys", she is in the minds of everyone. On Thursday night, a young friend messaged to say she was watching the match while sitting in the bathroom wearing a single sock and the same T-shirt she wore "when India won the World Cup at home". To Indian eyes, the innings and the match turned the conditional nomenclature of "women's cricket" into what it is - cricket. (Like it is with Indians and badminton these days.)

What it also did was take the bogus television theory of "attracting women" through eye-candy type visuals, cheerleaders and other flim-flam and hit it out of the park. Sport is gender-neutrally watchable at its most compelling. In Derby when she got going, Harmanpreet compelled everyone to watch. What stayed in the mind were the fundamentals; not male not female, merely athletic and human: the blessed gift of timing, its conversion into instinct and muscle memory, the breadth of mind and resoluteness of heart to turn it all into audacity and fearlessness. To step out of the crease to anything, anyone, any pace, and to own the game, to become its momentum and from there, the outcome. All this from five feet three inches of a woman under a helmet.

That last sentence immediately appears extraneous because every sporting story begins with the fundamentals and ends in the result. For the rest, we fill in the details. Harmanpreet scripted it, India won it, the world may never be the same again

Harmanpreet's striking ability is of no surprise to anyone who has followed the women's game from even the corner of their eye. There is a younger, harder-hitting, generation of 21st-century Indian cricketer being created in the playing fields, with an eye on shorter formats, and in the women's team, Harmanpreet is its leader.

The writing is on the scoreboard: "Harmanator", "super-Harman", "En-Kaur" - no pun can truly convey the epicness of the innings

She was signed up in Australia's Women's Big Bash League and finished as the No. 2 run scorer for her team, Sydney Thunder. The Indian women's fielding is not up to scratch with the world's best, but did you see how substitute Mansi Joshi pulled back a boundary and saved a single? And back to the batting, how Veda Krishnamurthy pumped up the volume in the must-win game against New Zealand?

What India and women's cricket need after Sunday is a well-calibrated calendar of bilaterals or tournaments, and solid domestic leagues like those offered in England or Australia. Anything less will be small-minded, petty. The genie is out of the bottle, the elephant in the room is angry, and the girls are banging down Indian cricket's door. The BCCI's revenues have been used to muscle ahead in the world game, in the boardroom and on the field. This World Cup is now Indian cricket's chance to absorb the women's game into its ecosystem in the true sense of the word, and to drive it forward in the world, but with camaraderie, and mutual respect.

On Friday evening, I ran into Smitha Harikrishna, former allrounder double World Cupper for India, MBA and former Hindustan Petroleum employee, now based in Dubai, an active mother with an ICC Level II coaching course, who works with cricket "cubs", young boys and girls both. She was in India on a vacation, her eyes shining when talking about the innings. "We'd never scored so many, hit that hard, hit that long." Harikrishna retired at 26. Harmanpreet is 28. "I can now tell girls... yes, go play cricket. There's a future in it."

Earlier that day in office, I pestered the ESPNcricinfo desk to use "Harmanator" in a headline somewhere. It has been turned down so far, with an eyeroll from my younger colleagues. The site had just launched its redesign on Thursday afternoon, and there was no time for being predictable, being so yesterday. Harmanpreet Kaur and the Derby semi-final, and the 2017 Women's World Cup, will always stand for tomorrow.

England 165/6 now after 39.
Game very much in England's favour, considering Indians will just collapse.

206/7 after 47.3
England very much in command now.
Total is already beyond India's abilities.

Must say it's a well-deserved win by England.
They weren't defending a big score, and they did put down a few chances, but most importantly, they held their nerve till the end - while the Indian women lost theirs.

Can't be too harsh on the Indian women though. Biggest of stages, they were always going to find it a huge mental test. I don't think there was much in it in skills, it was down to mental strength.

Anyway, congrats England.

And very well played, India.

Proud of you!

And Why did England deserve to win ? Please explain.

I thought India deserved to win after knocking out the Favourite and also won a knock out game against NZ to get into the semis.

That run out of Mithali Raj was the turning point, she was pretty poor in responding to the call and didn't seem to put effort in trying to make her ground.

Not sure why they played Mandhana after she had something like 4 - 5 failures leading into the final. Stupid decision. I would have opened with Khrisnamurthy and bought some one else into the side.

Anyway congrats to the England girls they kept at it and won.

Congrats to England for winning the final. Well deserved.

Also very well done to the Indian women for making it to the final and almost winning it. They should have won, but choked.

Had India won it would have done great things for women cricket going forward. I think they should start a Women IPL. Will help women cricket as well as empowering women in India.

India did not lack skill as Raja mentioned. The situation got the better of them. If it was any other game they would have won after being 190/3 chasing 229
