ENGW 228/7 (50.0 Ovs)
INDW 219-all out (48.4 Ovs)
Sarah: “Quite a comeback. Bit of a fight in there. It’s been a roller-coaster year for most of the team. I got back to training to see how it goes (after my break)”
Fran Wilson: Credit to this team. Everyone was amazing. I don’t know, it’s just past experiences, knowing there were 20000 people behind, out there 11 girls and the support staff. Thanks everyone for coming today. I cannot imagine life after the World Cup win.
Shrubsole: “I’m lost for words. Unbelievable game. One of the great things about this team is they never give up. Just an amazing game from start to finish. A fitting final. So much pressure on you in a final. I think it’s a big dream come true”
Hartley: “Cannot believe it. This is what we have been working for. For me, it was just another cricket game. Shrubsole, well, what a hero!”
Robinson (England coach): “India played really well. It’s always about getting that one wicket, and then you get two and three. Slower bowlers were always going to be hard to get away. This team has a lot of heart and courage. Incredibly mapped by ICC (this tournament)”
Tammy Beaumont: Bowled well today, but Anya was just outstanding to bowl that way. In a World Cup final, every run is important. We just stuck there.
Great days ahead for India:
A meltdown. Well played girls, you made us proud. Great days ahead. The girls have shown that investment in the game will be worth it. Let’s do it.
