Looks like we are going to lose the final to Pakistan's women. We managed only 81 & Pak's women have got to 21/1 off 7. We need a couple of wickets very quickly to have any chance. Time for me to stop following the match. That usually helps.

Congrats to the Indian women for winning the title, although they had to huff and puff against the Pakistani women -- who have so many social challenges at home simply to play cricket, leave alone doing so internationally.

The most interesting aspect of this was the venue: perhaps the first international cricket tournament to be played in China, at the Guanggong stadium in Guangzhou (the city previously known as Canton, the home of the Cantonese who are the dominant linguistic community in Hong Kong, and the famed entrepot into China that was the pivot of the Opium Wars).

Good effort in the field by India.
However, I'm taking the credit for the win! When I was following the score, Pakistan were 31/1 and the 2nd wicket fell on the very next ball after I logged off. Then wickets fell regularly because I stayed away. ;)

I have no much interest to watch Indian Women Cricket but I know Mithaliraj is the caption of team who has right handed bating style. I like her bating style. She perform well.

Even as our men are struggling badly in England, our women team completed a historic test win in England.

Yes, this was a truly magnificent win over the #1 women's side. I would compare this to the men's team win at the Oval in 1971 in terms of historic importance. India's women play too few test matches though. Mithali Raj who led India to victory with 50* was playing only her 10th test (she has played 168 ODIs!). In one of her early tests, she made a mammoth 214 against England!

India is playing SA in a single test. Eleven players (3 for India and 8 for SA) are making their debut thanks to rarity of such an event. India scored a massive 400/6d with centuries from Kamini (192) and Padmini Raut (130) who shared a massive 275 run second wicket partnership. In reply SA scored 234 and are reeling at 84/6 after following on. Debutant off spinner Ranjana Gayakwad picked up 4-54 and medium pacer Harminder Kaur picked up 5-44 in the first innings. I wish they played 3 tests so that our players get more matches to play.

When I checked the score SA were 221/5. Presumed the match would be dawn, but what a brilliant day. Need more tests as our women are much more competitive than or 'over hyped' men.

Looks like Harmanpreet (not Harminder as I wrote earlier) Kaur finished off the tail and so SAWmn went from 209-4 to 234 all out with Gayakwad taking the other wickets. Surprisingly, Jhulan Goswami went wicketless in the first innings but has taken 2 of the 6 in the second innings.

There is a four nation ODI tournament going on in South Africa featuring SA, India, Ireland and Zimbabwe. Indian women have won all their matches. In their last match against Ireland, Deepti Shah (188) and Poonam Raut (108) put on a world record 320 for the first wicket. Deepti's individual score is the second highest ODI score ever. Have we found a successor to Mithali Raj? Here is the Cricinfo report on the record stand.

The women's world cup is being hosted by England and is scheduled to start on June 24.
