It strikes me that England, like Australia, are the least dependent on 2 or 3 very influential players and actually have a squad of players who can be interchanged without weakening the side too much, so the trick now is to close the gap on Australia and I think fielding is the way to close that gap

Meg Lanning hit her 14th ODI century today as Australia beat New Zealand.

No player, of any gender, has taken fewer innings (82) to reach that total.

Sarah Glenn looks a good bowler. I think she's out performed Sophie E in this series



That's s big call ,DFM...I reckon they've both bowled pretty well in these matches. Perhaps Sarah has been more successful with the wickets (haven't rechecked the figures) but Sophie has a bit of an aura which helps her generally put the brakes on sharply ; and I think she has tended to bowl - very effectively - in the key periods. In any case they are a fine pair to have available !

In a double success for Glenn, the 21-year-old was also named as the Player of the Series during England's 5-0 IT20 whitewash over West Indies on 30 September.


I agree, alfie.... with both her and Sophie E, England have very good options. Villiers is coming through too

Cricket has unearthed another decent Lamichhane.

Alisha Lamichhane (no relation, seemingly) has got five wickets in her first ever two games in a Nepalese Women's torunament. Not a bad start.

Sophie Devine hits a 36 ball hundred for Wellington against Otago. Takes the record for the fastest century away from Deandre Dottin's 38 ball ton

Great game today between South Africa and Pakistan. After SA put on a round 200, Pakistan nearly pulled away from a bad start and ended up needing a four off the final ball....which they did not achieve. Shabnim Ismail was the star for SA with figures of 3-42
