England women Beats Indian by 9 runs

Electing to bat, England had a decent start with their openers Lauren Winfield (24) and Tammy Beaumont (23) putting on 4 runs for the first wicket.

"What a (semi-final) game and we're delighted to get to that final". India are playing their second final in the history of women's World Cup.

"Both teams and all of the players have really contributed and I think that's been the massive thing for both sides coming into this final".

"I would also prefer women cricketers playing longer format as well". The two highest totals in the tournament belong to England: 377 for 7 against Pakistan, and 373 for 5 against South Africa; no other team has scored more than 305 in this World Cup. She dismissed Natalie Sciver (51) followed by Katherine Brunt (0) to put the England women's team under pressure. Gunn drops a simple catch at mid-off in the third delivery, before Gayakwad gets her off-stump rattled in the fourth ball to signal the end of the World Cup.

The highlight of the lanky Bengali's outing was the back-to-back dismissals of Sarah Taylor and Fran Wilson, which pegged England back.
