It seems in Australia if you're a woman and play a traditional man's sport you have to be a bull dyke.

Does that make England more progressive than Australia? :think:


my wife plays cricket and soccer and she's the only non lesbian looking girl in both teams; dykes like sport.


yeah I know, but its not until a sport goes mainstream that the 'non-dykes' occupy the majority.

eg netball, basketball, hockey, has a fair representation of non dykes
basketball when I was younger it used to be all dykes - its progressed since then.

So my logic here is, the more progressive or mainstreamed a sport is, the greater share of the general women's population play it.

Cricket is still is in the dyke domination stage meaning it has far to go to become a mainstream women's sport. It still seen as a man's sport hence why women who want to be men play it predominantly. England are ahead of us here.

I find that all women's teams, including the leading teams like Australia and England rely on spin rather than "pace" in women's cricket. That is to be expected seeing that the "pacers" in women's cricket bowl at around 105-110 kmph only.

All teams have spinners in their lines up. How good they are cannot be said. Personally I think that Australian spinners are taking more wickets than spinners of other teams so they may be better. I do not think that spinners of Asian teams are as good as their male counterparts. There are some spinners who bowl so slow that I wonder if the ball would reach the stump and dislodge the bail. There is this Indian spinner whose deliveries are bowled at below 60 kmph. I do not think it is physically possible to bowl any slower than this.

09:45am local: It's a cold morning in Bristol. The teams have arrived at the venue, to play on a pitch that's been used before in the tournament. A slower and lower pitch brings India right into the game, who otherwise start overwhelmingly as the underdogs.

Have a read: Mithali Raj talks about the need of a greater role for India's top order

09:30am local: After a long stretch of easy quietude, the essentiality of bagging a job suddenly hits you in college. So does it now hit the Indian cricket team, today in direct face-off with bigwig Australia for the semifinal spot. Cricket isn't as dissimilar to college as it seems, after all. Can India put the despiriting 115-run loss to South Africa behind? Can Australia put aside theirs?

Preview

India, surprisingly, and Australia led the points table till the halfway mark but coming into their penultimate league game of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017, neither are assured of a semis spot. After slipping to heart-breaking defeats in their fifth round games, both teams are now caught in a five-pronged tussle for the knockout slots. Come Wednesday (July 12), the winner will make it through and the other will be caught in last-minute calculations as we head towards the pointy end of the competition.

Their rampaging run in the World Cup might have come to a screeching halt against England but it's an open secret that Australia start as overwhelming favourites. Meg Lanning-led side has dished out one clinical performance after another, with bat and ball as well as in the field, to stand out from the rest of the pack and re-ascertain their supremacy. Even the narrow three-run defeat to hosts underlined the depth in their batting that all but chased down a record World Cup target to make up for an ordinary day their bowlers had to endure. The six-time champions aren't used to such gut-wrenching defeats and with a semifinal spot on the line, the fire in the belly would be raging.

Should they unexpectedly lose to India, Australia have the cushion of a superior net run rate. Furthermore, their final league match is against South Africa, who might be on a roll lately but don't boast of a single win against them in their ODI history. The odds, once again, are comprehensively stacked in favour of the defending champions.

For India though, it's more than what meets the eye.

The clash against South Africa was the start of a tricky phase for India in the competition and they fumbled at the very first and, perhaps, the easiest of all steps. It started right at the toss when Mithali Raj went against the tide and opted to chase on a flat Leicester track. India seemed content with stemming the flow of runs rather than producing wicket-taking opportunities when the bowlers came under attack from Lizelle Lee and others. The contest was as good as over when India's scorecard read 65 for 7 in reply. If that's a reality check Raj & Co. needed, they head into this week knowing they need to fire in unison to beat either of Australia or New Zealand and finish the job they started so admirably well two weeks ago.

Whether it was Smriti Mandhana's runs upfront in the first couple of games or an exceptional cover-up job by the slower bowlers later, India didn't find themselves in a spot of bother in the first half. But in the aftermath of an abject display against South Africa, they will have to re-think their batting order. Barring the opener against England, India have stubbornly kept Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur - two of their best batters - reserved at No. 4 and 5 irrespective of the start provided by the top-three. With a misfiring middle and lower order, that strategy needs a revisit against two of the strongest opponents they are yet to face.

The glaring inconsistency of their leading pace bowlers has further added to India's woes, even though the spinners have done a remarkably good job of bailing the team out of trouble on most occasions. Having slipped to a tricky third spot, with both fourth and fifth placed New Zealand and South Africa breathing down their neck and least impressive NRR amongst all, India can ill afford any more slip ups.

When: India vs Australia, Match 23, July 12 at 9:30am GMT

Where: County Ground, Bristol

What to expect: While the match is likely to be played under cloudy skies, the rainfall expected on the eve of the game means the pitch would remain under the covers overnight. Expect that to have a direct bearing at the toss.

Team News

India: Shikha Pandey's economical bowling in her three-wicket haul on comeback would help her retain the spot in the side, ahead of Mansi Joshi. With a do-or-die clash at hand, India wouldn't want to risk bringing in a rusty Rajeshwari Gayakwad, despite the left-arm spinner having plenty of wickets in the lead up to the tournament. Allrounder Deepti Sharma hit a timely half-century to warrant a place in the XI, but the batting order needs a desperate rejig.

Australia: England exposed the chinks in Australia's bowling armoury but a one off incident in an otherwise inspiring show thus far wouldn't make for a convincing argument to tinker with a very strong XI. Lanning's troublesome shoulder is something the team would be monitoring closely but it's unlikely that the captain will give this crucial tie a miss.

What they said

"Our initial breakthrough has been a concern for us. We need to play more attacking cricket, similar to that of South Africa [on Saturday]. We need to plan better for that. Even before the World Cup started, we said that we were going to do our best and not have to depend on other teams. Obviously, all that now comes into the picture, so we'll do what we do best - that is winning the next two games, and then we'll see what happens," said Shikha Pandey ahead of, probably, India's toughest contest in the competition thus far.

"Against England was not our best performance with the ball but hopefully we can learn from that pretty quickly and come back for India. We've spoken about it a fair bit as a bowling unit trying to minimise those extras and 32 wides (23 wides) is way too many and something we are going to have to improve on moving forward," Meg Lanning on Australia's bowling show that let them down against England.

ENGLAND VS NEWZELAND

EngW vs NZW, Derby

Milestone moments: Congrats to Amy Satterthwaite of New Zealand and Katherine Brunt of England who are set to play their 100th ODI today. :lolup: :mrgreen: :lmao: :rj:
=======+=+++++++++++++++

09:30 Local Time: Hello all! Having won four out of their last four matches, England Women sit pretty at the top of the points table and are breathing fire in the tournament. Today they lock horns with New Zealand Women, who are also on a winning run lately but they still need to win their remaining two matches to stay afloat in the competition. It is the fact that the momentum cliche is totally rendered redundant - both teams are on a winning streak and it'll be interesting to see who comes out on top. Scroll down to read a detailed and insightful preview as we wait for the toss and teams.

Preview

New Zealand have done exceedingly well to stay in contention for the semifinal spot, but are about to face their toughest test yet. They take on table-toppers England on a day when all five of the top-four aspirants will be in action. No pressure, then.

Heather Knight's England arrive for the fixture not just sitting at the top of a highly competitive heap, but also after having jolted their rivals and defending champions Australia in a last-over thriller just a couple of days ago. Their victory over Australia was their fourth on the trot, since their campaign-opener defeat to India. That loss was also the last time England's batters failed to carry the team forward as the Sarah Taylor-inspired batting unit has turned a new leaf since.

Two mammoth first-innings scores of 377 (against Pakistan) and 373 (against South Africa) and a swift chase (against Sri Lanka) proved England's prowess to be clinical, while the hard-fought win over Australia showed that they possess the ability to dig deep in the face of a challenge. Batting has clearly been England's strength, having two (Sarah Taylor - 289 runs in 5 innings - and Knight - 258 runs in 5 innings) of the top three run-getters in the tournament in their ranks. The team has also not been deterred by the rare occasion when the top-order has failed, as the middle and lower-middle order has done well to cover England's tracks. Their bowling efforts have been a lot more combined when compared to the run-making, with off-break bowler Danielle Hazell leading the way for England.

If most of England's victories have come courtesy a superior batting show, New Zealand's wins (3 in 5 games) have all come thanks to a collective bowling effort that has enabled them to bowl out oppositions for sub-200 totals. The flaw in New Zealand's campaign, however, is that their wins have come against three bottom-placed teams, two of who have lost all their five fixtures so far. When they went up against holders Australia, their batting looked ordinary, barring the two half-centurions Suzie Bates and Katie Perkins, and Erin Bermingham. Their bowlers picked five wickets in defence of 219 but the team was clearly 15-20 runs short.

The fixture against England will pose a similar threat to New Zealand. There may not be clear cut opportunities to dismantle a batting line-up or tie them down to a low score easily, as has been the case in their three wins. On the contrary, this could be a litmus test for New Zealand's strength in the tournament so far. New Zealand's are flimsily placed at fourth spot, and will have an eye on the result of third-placed India's game against Australia, and fifth-placed South Africa's fixture vs Sri Lanka. The best case scenario for New Zealand will be to secure a win to stay ahead of the chasing pack.

When: England Women vs New Zealand Women, July 12, 2017 at 10.30am local time

Where: County Ground, Derby

What to expect: Despite showers on the eve of the game, there is a good news in store for both England and New Zealand as sunshine with intervals of clouds is anticipated on match day, with temperature going up to 20 degrees.

Team News:

England: The leaders are in rollicking form at the moment, with four wins on the bounce, and will see little reason to tamper with a combination that is swiftly heading towards the next round.

New Zealand: The team management made two inspired changes midway through the tournament. The right-arm off-break pair of Leigh Kasperek (3-17 and 2-35) and 20-year-old Hannah Rowe (3-22) have accounted for eight wickets between them. Rowe, however, could likely make way for an extra pace option in the experienced Holly Huddleston. Maddy Green, too, could be left out as New Zealand seek to put their best XI against table toppers.

Teams:


New Zealand Women (From): Amy Satterthwaite, Rachel Priest(w), Sophie Devine, Katey Martin, Suzie Bates(c), Katie Perkins, Maddy Green, Lea Tahuhu, Amelia Kerr, Leigh Kasperek, Hannah Rowe, Erin Bermingham, Thamsyn Newton, Holly Huddleston, Anna Peterson


England Women (From): Lauren Winfield, Tammy Beaumont, Sarah Taylor(w), Heather Knight(c), Natalie Sciver, Danielle Wyatt, Katherine Brunt, Jenny Gunn, Anya Shrubsole, Danielle Hazell, Alex Hartley, Georgia Elwiss, Beth Langston, Laura Marsh, Fran Willy

India lost ManDhana and elsewhere Eng.lost Winfield in the first 4 overs.Even srilanka too lost one opener in their Game vs SOA W

I think India will loose this one once again, 69 for 1 at half way
England 91 for 3 and Srilanka 51 for 4

Batting looks impossible when games sets on same Ground, we noticed in same pattern in RECENT CHAMPION TROPHY also 50/50 games.Here I think same week they keep playing on same track.

England v South Africa, 1st semi-final, Women's World Cup, Bristol July 17, 2017
Pressure on England to do the running

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Can South Africa's attack lead the underdogs to the final?

Four years ago, the possibility of England playing South Africa in a semi-final would've been scoffed at. But South Africa are here, and that is thanks to their consistent bowling performances and the format itself - seven straight games for each team to leave an imprint.

Dane van Niekerk and her team-mates have played a brand of cricket that has been reminiscent of West Indies in 2013, injecting fresh flavour into the tournament, celebrating every win with gusto. South Africa took the qualifier route to get here and the benefit of having a settled team - they've been playing together since February - has been apparent. By the time they landed in England, every player knew exactly what was expected of her.

England, meanwhile, are in a cocoon outside of training sessions and media commitments. They have even made efforts to log off social media distractions. Heather Knight and her team have the weight of expectation on them, because they are favourites, a well-earned tag after their six clinical and successive victories since losing the opening game to India.

The batsmen have been especially dominant. Concerns over Sarah Taylor's form, after she took much of 2016 out to deal with anxiety issues, were emphatically brushed aside when these two teams had met in the group stages. The England wicketkeeper struck a regal 147 off 104 balls with no less than 24 fours. Natalie Sciver, amid scoring tons of runs, has also introduced the 'Natmeg' - a flick between the legs to yorker-length deliveries. And opener Tammy Beaumont is the tournament's leading run-getter with 372 of them.

But if there's one attack that's capable of stopping England's juggernaut, it's South Africa's. In Marizanne Kapp and Dane van Niekerk, they have two bowlers who have combined to take 27 wickets, much more than the cream of England's attack. On form, this is, therefore, a clash of equals, although the pressure of being hosts could weigh on England's mind.

Form guide

England WWWWW (completed matches, most recent first)
South AfricaLWWLW

In the spotlight

At her menacing best, Anya Shrubsole can be a threat on any surface. In this tournament, however, wickets have been a struggle for England's vice-captain. Five in seven games is a reflection of how batsmen have taken note of her threat and negated it by looking to play her out. She will, however, have fond memories of the last semi-final against South Africa, at the World T20 in 2014, when she took 2 for 12 in an incisive opening burst to seal the game.

Her contributions haven't attracted the same attention, but it's a direct acknowledgement of how tidy Trisha Chetty has been behind the stumps. Against Sri Lanka last week, she rose to the top of the list for most dismissals (134) by a wicketkeeper in Women's ODIs. With 97 ODIs under her belt, she'd want to get as close to that milestone of 100 right here at the Women's World Cup.

Team news

Lauren Winfield's form at the top is a concern, but, barring injuries, England are unlikely to make too many changes for a knockout game.

England: (possible) 1 Lauren Winfield, 2 Tammy Beaumont, 3 Sarah Taylor (wk), 4 Heather Knight (capt), 5 Natalie Sciver, 6 Fran Wilson, 7 Katherine Brunt, 8 Jenny Gunn, 9 Laura Marsh, 10 Anya Shrubsole, 11 Alex Hartley
:lmao:
South Africa are likely to bring back Chloe Tryon, a big-hitter who can also bowl seam up. Her services were missed in the loss to Australia. As such medium-pacer Masabata Klaas could find herself out.

South Africa: (possible) 1 Laura Wolvaardt, 2 Lizelle Lee, 3 Trisha Chetty (wk), 4 Mignon du Preez, 5 Marizanne Kapp, 6 Sune Luus, 7 Dane van Niekerk (capt), 8 Chloe Tryon, 9 Shabnim Ismail, 10 Ayabonga Khaka, 11 Moseline Daniels
:rj:
Pitch and conditions

The league game between these two sides in Bristol produced 678 runs. This is a televised game, a semi-final at that, and the ICC, over the years, have focused on making such games more marketable. So expect a good bating surface.

Stats and trivia

• Four England players have scored 250 runs or more in this tournament. It is the most among all teams - Beaumont (372), Heather Knight (333), Sciver (315), Taylor (297).

• South Africa's only semi-final appearance came 17 years ago. They lost to Australia by nine wickets then

• England have won 26 out of the 34 meetings between the two sides.

Quotes

"I came into the World Cup thinking I had the best opening attack in the world, at the moment I am starting to believe I have the best bowling attack."
South Africa captain Dane Van Niekerk

"We prepared a little bit differently, there was a different vibe around the group. A few people did things they wouldn't usually do on cricket, field, but that's international cricket. And I think we have learnt a lot from that. We've done a lot of work on how we deal with that pressure, we've made it normal to feel pressure. And that kind of open honesty helps "

England captain Heather Knight

SA slowed down in the latter half of their innings.
Were looking good for 250.
218 was never going to be enough, though they fought gamely and managed to take it to the very last over.
Missed some chances too.

Anyway, it's a good old England vs Australia clash now in the finals.

Australia v India, Women's World Cup semi-final, Derby July 20, 2017

Rainford-Brent: India will think they can tie Australia down

Big picture


A week ago, when India went down to Australia by eight wickets, the odds in favour of the two teams facing each other a second time this World Cup were seemingly low. While Australia had sealed a semi-final berth at a canter, India's fate was to be decided by a knock-out tie against New Zealand. In what turned out to be their most comprehensive victory in the tournament, a century from captain Mithali Raj, coupled with Veda Krishnamurthy's 45-ball 70, marshalled India to their fourth semi-final appearance in ten editions and their first since 2005, when they finished runners-up.

The volatility of India's performances has had a lot to do with their openers. Smriti Mandhana, who got India's campaign off to a flying start with a 90 and a hundred in consecutive games, hasn't been able to score in excess of 15 in the four subsequent games. Punam Raut, too, has made two substantial scores - 86 against England and 106 against Australia - while not scoring a fifty in her other five innings. But the one factor that has remained constant for India is Raj's resilience. While her strike rate hasn't been the most enviable, Raj's partnerships with Raut, Harmanpreet Kaur, Krishnamurthy and Deepti Sharma have been vital to India's totals, as have been her 356 runs at an average of 50.85, that contributed to her becoming the first Indian to score 1000 runs in the World cup

For Australia, though, consistency of the top order led to the side's six wins out of seven games. With one century and four fifties between them, the left-handed opening pair of Beth Mooney and Nicole Bolton has not only negated the shenanigans of the new ball but also laid the foundation for the other batsmen to capitalise on thereafter. That they bat as deep as No.9 has given Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry the freedom to play with abandon.

Equally instrumental to Australia's fortunes has been the variety and efficacy of their spin troika - Jess Jonassen, Ashleigh Gardner and Kristen Beams - who have taken 27 wickets between them, while conceding less than four an over each. Despite the spectre of uncertainty around the protracted pay talks with their board, Australia's performance on the field has been near-perfect, with their batting and bowling complementing each other perfectly even when they have been without Lanning.

Form guide

Australia WWLWW (completed matches, most recent first)
India WLLWW

In the spotlight

Through their seven league matches, Australia's brooding confidence as defending champions translated, almost seamlessly, into their incarnation as practical frontrunners to win the World Cup. Much of that transition has, unsurprisingly, coincided, with Ellyse Perry's imperious run of form - on Saturday, she became the only batsman to make five successive ODI half-centuries on three separate occasions. Perry's 58-ball 55 against South Africa was one of 20 fifties in her last 31 ODI innings. That run of form has earned her a career-best No. 3 spot among batsmen in the latest ICC Women's ODI Player Rankings. Her World Cup tally of 366 runs from seven innings is the second-highest in the tournament, and her returns with the ball - nine wickets and an economy rate of 4.62 - have helped her leapfrog West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor to become the top-ranked allrounder in the world for the third time in her career.

Rajeshwari Gayakwad came in to bowl, for the first time in the tournament, in the 12th over of New Zealand's chase. Even though the scorecard read 34 for 3, Sophie Devine and Amy Satterthwaite were still at the crease. By her fifth over, Gayakwad had dismissed both, and halfway into her eighth, she had wrapped up career-best returns, the best bowling figures in this tournament, and India's semi-final spot. Gayakwad was Raj's trump card against New Zealand, and will remain so against Australia. Unlike fellow left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht, whom she replaced in the side, Gayakwad bowls with genuine loop and guile, and could hold the key to slowing Australia down. When India last defeated Australia, in Hobart last year, Gayakwad bowled an important spell, taking two wickets including that of Lanning.

Meg Lanning averages 109.33 in this Women's World Cup

Team news

Lanning's troublesome shoulder forced her to sit out a second game in the tournament during Australia's last league match, against South Africa on Saturday. She was, however, seen taking throwdowns, albeit with a heavily strapped shoulder, as the team got its first training session underway in the County Ground. Chances of her not slotting back into the XI, and as captain, for the knockout clash are, therefore, slim.

Despite Lanning's inclusion, Australia may consider retaining stand-in captain Rachael Haynes, who has featured in only two games so far. Against South Africa, Haynes' left-arm medium-pace accounted for two top-order wickets off the only two overs she has bowled since the 2013 World Cup. With two golden ducks and one half-century in her last four innings, Elyse Villani's expensive part-time medium pace may not be enough for her to merit a selection ahead of fellow allrounder Haynes.

Australia (possible) 1 Beth Mooney, 2 Nicole Bolton, 3 Meg Lanning (capt), 4 Ellyse Perry, 5 Elyse Villani, 6 Alex Blackwell , 7 Alyssa Healy (wk), 8 Ashleigh Gardner, 9 Jess Jonassen,10 Megan Schutt, 11 Kristen Beams

Given the nature of the individual performances in their last group game, it is unlikely India will tweak their playing combination.

India (possible) 1 Smriti Mandhana , 2 Punam Raut, 3 Mithali Raj (capt), 4 Harmanpreet Kaur, 5 Veda Krishnamurthy, 6 Deepti Sharma, 7 Shikha Pandey, 8 Sushma Verma, 9 Jhulan Goswami, 10 Rajeshwari Gayakwad, 11 Poonam Yadav

Pitch and conditions

Mithali Raj considers Derby India's "home ground" and for good reason. They won each of their four round-robin fixtures at the venue, including the tournament opener against England and the semi-final qualification match against New Zealand. Australia, however, will be playing here for the first time in this World Cup.

India's undefeated run at the venue has largely been due to the spinners, who have capitalised on the two-paced nature of the pitch to take 24 out of India's 33 wickets here.

Stats and trivia

• Perry's average of 91.50 is second only to Lanning's 109.33 in this World Cup.

• Three Australian bowlers - left-arm spinner Jess Jonassen, legspinner Kristen Beams and medium-
pacer Megan Schutt - feature in the top ten on the wicket charts. India, on the contrary, have none.

• Among the India batsmen, Krishnamurthy boasts the best strike-rate, 110.86, trailed by Mandhana's 95.76.

• Legspinner Poonam Yadav's economy rate of 3.45 is the best among bowlers in the tournament who have sent down 20 overs or more. Jonassen's 3.61 is the second-best.

• India have won only eight out of their 42 contests against Australia, the most recent win coming in 2016, steered by half-centuries from Raj and Mandhana and a three-for from Shikha Pandey.

Quotes

"I'm very impressed with the way India have played this tournament, from the very beginning in their match against England. They were very proactive as a team and I think they have a more aggressive approach to their batting".
Australia vice-captain Alex Blackwell

"To win against them requires us to give more than we have so far, against Australia it is important that we are the best we can be as players".
India captain Mithali Raj

Perry bowls around 120kmh while the other Aussie quicks are around 101kmh; is 120 extreme pace in women's cricket?

What an innings from Kaur, 171 of 115 balls. :bow:

Didn't see not one Aussie girl congratulate her at the end of the innings. Pretty poor. :nono:
