England's women cricketers queens of the cricketing world

England pulled off a pulsating victory in the women’s cricket World Cup final at a packed Lord’s against a talented Indian side.

England took the crease first and underwhelmed with the bat scoring a chaseable 229.


That despite a 51 from Natalie Sciver and 45 from Sarah Taylor.


India were well on course at 191 for 3, cue Anja Shrubsole who got Punam Raut lbw for 86, which lit the fuse for a collapse.


Shrubsole went on to dish up a devastating spell of 5-11 in 19 deliveries to spark ecstatic celebrations.

England the world champions by nine runs.
