England's women want revenge in CWC final

India Already Wins ICC Women's World Cup 2017

Anya Shrubsole bowled England to a dramatic nine-run win over India in the Women's World Cup final at Lord's on Sunday.

Modi wished the team in a series of tweets where he greeted all the cricketers individually and appreciated their talents.

Should any of India's top-order start to dominate Sunday's Women's World Cup final, one young England bowler wants the responsibility to take them down.

Kaur had scored a valuable 60 in the virtual quarter-final against New Zealand and has peaked at just the right time for Mithali Raj's India. "Her cool approach to the game shall surely help the entire team", Modi said on Twitter. For India, three bowlers - Deepti Sharma, Ekta Bisht, and Poonam Yadav - have taken more than eight wickets, while England's leading wicket-takers, Alex Hartley and Heather Knight, have taken eight each.

Mithali Raj, in the 18th year of her professional career and after having featured in four World Cup campaigns earlier, is a win away from realising her dream. Playing the hosts in their own country is going to be a challenge but this unit is up for it."England, meanwhile, qualified for the final with a dramatic two-wicket win over South Africa with Anya Shrubsole hitting the winning runs in the final over".

And Knight said: "I can't stop smiling".

Net Neutrality 'Day of Action' Fizzles into Big Yawn
Vimeo released their own video on Wednesday, explaining the basics of net neutrality and how to fight to ensure it remains intact. If we don't win this particular battle, legal action could potentially derail Pai's plans before they officially take effect.

Shrubsole got England off to a dream start as India began their reply, nicking the off-stump of the risky Smriti Mandhana for a duck in the second over.

The win comes as a welcome boost with India in need of cricket cheer after the men's team capitulated to Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final last month.

In 2011, she became the first female Test player to reach her 100th birthday and, in the same year, was awarded Honorary Life Membership by MCC. "As I said in the last press meet, against Australia, it was they who were giving us more contributions from these players". That experience was at full display during the England innings of the 2017 ICC Women's World Cup at Lord's on Sunday.

Very often such an effort goes unnoticed but at Lords, each and everyone was applauding her effort as she finished her quota of overs.

The end of Jhulan's spell proved to be a boon for England, who rode on Katherine Brunt's 42-ball 34 and Jenny Gunn's 25 off 38 balls towards the end to sign off with a respectable total.

"Obviously we're out for a little bit of revenge but both sides have played a lot of cricket since then and changed a lot, so I don't think the first game will have much of a bearing".
