Women's WT20 2018

India win the opener on the back of Harmanpreet's century off 49 balls which contained every bit the belligerence that her 171 a year back contained.

A turn up the Windies match. How often does a team score 106 and win by 60 runs? suspect the Indian bookmakers as you would have got very long odds on the Windies after the first innings.

White ball games between England and Sri Lanka seem to attract the rain.

I liked a tweet about the Aussie players. A nightmare for commentators with so many having similar names - Elysse Perry, Alissa Healey, Elyse Villani and Elite Honesty!!

There's only one Elysse Perry, a goddess of the game.

This competition makes a change from the men's game where the ball keeps flying to all corners.

India's most complete performance so far as they somehow dominate Australia and end the group stage unbeaten.

The same problems from last year's World Cup team- ridiculously top heavy.

Our spinners a little more of a threat on the slower Windies tracks though.

Windies beat England to top the group and play Australia in the semi finals. England will play India in the other match.

England's fielding fell apart at the end, 3 dropped straightforward catches which cost at least 7 runs off those 3 balls. Also an inability to stop singles when the ball was hit straight to them.

Having said that, not sure there's too much between the 4 teams. Tosses could well be crucial. India look to have the two batsmen who are able to score on these pitches, although Guyana has certainly played easier than St Lucia. I'm guessing Antigua for the semis and final will play more like St Lucia.

England threw it away, very sloppy in the field. Dropped catches, misfields and missed run out chances. Have to tighten up a lot in the semi.

WIs are having a mare in their semi.

No way will they come back from 53/7.

I'd have liked to have stayed up for our game but I'm at work in the morning.

Looks like England had a comfortable win thanks to a decent third wicket stand.

I'd say it was more thanks to India collapsing from 88-2 to 112 all out!!

Great effort by the ladies, can they be the second England team to win a World T20 in the Caribbean?

Australia will be favourites.

Three previous wins - 2 against England. More successful than their male counterparts these days. Probably because they don't have a female version of David Warner in the side.

Agreed, but a close run thing. If England can get Alyssa Healey (who is Warner like in the way she bats) early then that takes out their main batting weapon. Oz also play far more seam bowlers than spinners, England definitely have more strength there and if the wicket does suit (like last night) then that will help.

Considering England are without both Sarah Taylor and Katherine Brunt this is a fine effort. Amy Jones has impressed with the bat as backup to Taylor but not in the same class with the gloves.

Final an anticlimax, England dire. Australia didn't have to work very hard for it
