"[It was] just an unbelievable game. We looked for minute like we were out of it", Shrubsole said. They got off to a brisk start scoring at a decent run-rate in the first ten overs. We need to pick up 15-20 players who are good and support them not just for one or two months, but right through a couple of years.

The inaugural Women's World Cup was the result of the vision of the late Rachael Heyhoe Flint and a £40,000 backing from businessman Sir Jack Hayward, both from Wolverhampton (the latter went on to own football club Wolves).

"Thirty seven is not too old, I don't think", Blackwell said.

The "Home of Cricket" is expected to draw a large audience for the final.

"The first match of the tournament saw India upset the host nation and this is England's opportunity to avenge that defeat". She recently became the highest run scorer in Women's global cricket and the 392 runs she has scored in this campaign have come more than handy.

Earlier pace bowler Goswami took three for 3/23 in 10 overs as India held England to 228/7.

India defeated Australia, the defending champions, by thirty six runs in the semifinals on Thursday to set up a final clash with England. "That presentation she and Smriti (Mandhana) got by collaborating with different players has been huge". "Back in Delhi was a long time ago but it was the making of this team", said Knight.

Kaur lofted and swept left-arm spinner Alex Hartley for two huge sixes.

But misfields and mistakes were starting to creep in for England.

India's target was now under a run a ball, and Veda Krishnamurthy raised a 50 stand with Raut off just 54 balls when she cut Shrubsole over point and drove her over mid-off for two fours in as many balls.

During her tough times, she did not have the motivation to bat much but she always idolized Virender Sehwag, modeling most of her game around him.

"Sushma Verma plays the important role of the wicket keeper".

Taylor thought she had Deepthi Sharma stumped but an drawn-out replay could not prove her foot was off the floor at the point of impact. The India men's team is also benefitting from that philosophy.

Having finished seventh in last edition of Women's World Cup, India will fancy their chances of emerging champions when they take on England in the final today A 36-run win over. That experience was at full display during the England innings of the 2017 ICC Women's World Cup at Lord's on Sunday.

Later on, Katherine Brunt and Jenny Gunn's worthy contributions helped the English women reach a total of 228.
