Having followed the women's game for a while I take no pleasure in seeing England's decline and the complacency of management.
Thanks for sharing that. The same amateurism that has bedeviled English sport across the years now bedeviling women's cricket.

The situation will only get worse, as the Kia Super League is binned off next year, in favour of a type of cricket not played anywhere else in the world. How will that help to bridge the gap between "the amateur county players and the fully professional internationals"? Thankfully the ECB were told to drop their idea to bin the womens county game. Otherwise that gap which needed bridging would be between club and fully pro internationals.

I suspect the women's game is seen solely as a part of marketing the ECB men's impending franchise competition.

The article wasn't particularly complimentary about the KSL either, as it had prioritised bringing in overseas starts rather than help domestic talent develop.

I agree, my comments weren't really about the article, more using it to bounce off.

Last year's ECB's ideas for women's cricket were to bin the Super League and bin the counties. Irrespective of the article, how was that supposed to help?

My initial thoughts about the Women's Super League was that it was a test run to provide a model for the ECB to modify and follow for when they were ready to launch a men's franchise competition. Now that point has arrived, let's bin the women's version for an experimental game which has no international follow through. Great. Real joined up thinking.

As for the failure rationale due to it "had prioritised bringing in overseas starts rather than help domestic talent develop" - watch this space. How many Overseas players will be employed by each franchise team next year?

yawn

The issues with the women's game have been bubbling under for a while, it seems, possibly masked by the WC triumph. I think more generally the problem has been that no one at the ECB has bothered to provide a vision for women's cricket, too preoccupied with the men's side and preserving the counties at all costs.

Took my eldest to her first game at Hove on Sunday. The batting was disappointing but they showed skill and spirit with the ball and in the field. The Aussies, in Lanning, Healy and especially Elysse Perry, have three exceptional cricketers. England are very low in confidence but do have some good talent, very impressed with Sophie Ecclestone and tonight Mady Villiers. Plenty to work with, just hope they don’t get too far behind the Aussies.

NZ cricketer Amy Satterthwaite and her team mate wife, Lea Tahuhu, have announced they're expecting a baby in January. As part of the new NZ Contracts, Satterthwaite will receive her full retainer whilst on Maternity Leave.

Fair to say, the Australian and NZ Cricket Boards are streets ahead of the ECB when it comes to supporting Women's Cricket.

Mark Robinson - did he jump or was he pushed?

Bit of both probably. He's not getting the support that the Aussies and now Kiwis enjoy. Having said that, the performance of the team was diabolical and he has to take some blame. They have clearly regressed in the 2 years since the World Cup and some of them look woefully short of fitness.

I went to a T20 at the Ageas last week. Wyatt was in a different league to everyone else (and has been for most of the competition), yet didn't get a look in for the ODI's.

Thailand (yes, that's not a typo) has qualified for the Women's T20 World Cup.

This West Indies-Australia series seems a complete mismatch.

With the levels of funding the Aussie players are now getting, this will become a common theme no matter who they are playing.
