It was rather sloppy in the field by the Indians, but our batting ensured we'd always have the upper hand. The finals is going to be interesting, but we're going to require something equally special to beat England.

Lords may be pretty full but MCC Members are conspicuous by the absence.
I hope our girls, who are all Besty Mates, triumph, but I'm a tad worried.

Our total is probably about 20 runs short.

We need to get a couple of early wickets to have a chance of winning this.

This is one of the most dramatic finals I've seen in a long time.

(218-8 as I write this)

Absolute disintegration by India - they really should have had the match in hand needing less than a run a ball with 7 wickets left - proceeding to get bowled out from there says more about psychology than anything else, with a few brainless runouts thrown in.

Both sides played well/badly enough to win/lose, but in the end, that cost them

That was tense at the end. When Heather Knight dropped that catch earlier it looked like she'd dropped the World Cup.

Great comeback by England.

That's a very good summary of a curate's egg of a game.

There may still be some questions about the quality of the women's game (although at the very worst, one can say that England's women must have the same catching coach as the men), but can't knock the excitement and intrigue of this tournament. As great as it is to see England win a classic at Lords, it was even greater to see it played in front of a full house at Lords.

Lovely to see Shrubsole be the match-winner too.

I haven't really followed the tournament too closely, or indeed Women's cricket more generally, but it has been good to see England hold their nerve to win this final. They seemed a bit short in setting a target, but the bowling near the end, together with India losing their nerve, got it done. From 191-3 to 219 all out was quite the collapse.

The trophy ceremony was longer than the tournament...

Thought those 2 missed chances in the middle had lost it but came through in the end.

Great performance! Really pleased for them. Anya Shrubsole is a quality name as well, not one you would easily forget. Will be interesting to see if the KSL enjoys a knock-on effect from the victory.

I wasn't that shocked to be honest. Having followed the Women's team for around a year now, I kinda knew India had to get there within the first five wickets coz they have a non-existent lower order. So, I was never celebrating even at 191/3.

Either way, congratulations to England for holding their nerve and coming out victorious in a great final of a WC which does feel like the most significant till date in terms of public awareness of women's cricket.

I left during it. Cricket presentations get longer and longer. Just hand the ruddy trophy to the winning skipper and do interviews afterwards.

But that was the only ordinary note in an otherwise delightful day. I've never seen so many women and children at a cricket match, the Indian fans were great fun with their cordial cacophony and it was a contest to savour. Rather reminiscent of a 1970s B&H Final, I thought.

So, after 12 fruitless trips to Lord's Finals, the side I've supported on the day has finally prevailed If you want a job doing properly, give it to a woman.
