Absolutely corking England Performance in a superb series.  Who needs The Hundred ?

England will be back in South Africva for 3 ODI's and 3 T20 matches next year - As with the recent New Zealand Test Series, this series counts for nothing as the 2020 -22 ICC Cricket World Cup dioes start until May 2020 ....

The World T20 in Australia in October / November 2020 is followed by The World T20 in India In October / November 2021. One reason why winning the T20 counts for less than the ODI World Cup . Alaso these is no ICC T20 series

Jos Buttler opens the batting for his IPL Franchise so this si not a new role as within 12 months of this years T2O world cup the sides meeti in India. this move makes sense. As does allowing Moeen Ali to play in the Pakistan Super League to get siome experience of subcontinental conditions as he has no Central contract for Tests with the ECB and England are unlikely to feature in the World Test Championshuip Final.

Women's T20 World Cup starts today. Thailand are the whipping girls and I'm not sure you could even find a bookie to take your bet on hosts Australia retaining their trophy.

Starting right now with Australia v India. I suspect it will end with the same game in the final.

India's excuse today was that the dog ate their script. A 17-run victory over the Australians.

Some good performances and a pitch that was a lot slower than anticipated

Thai ladies gave it a good go against the West Indies this morning. Just didn't have a big enough target to bowl at

Yeah saw that game, the Thai players seem to be Thai , not heritage players.  If Cricket can do that why can't we?

Looking at the England cricket men's team, that appears to be a heritage team

I'd urge you not to look too closely at the national teams of the Netherland and, to a lesser extent, Ireland.

There's been a formal structure in Thailand since 1971. They also benefit from being part of the wider Asian circuit which includes other countries with competitive teams like Nepal.

And back to the onfield: cracking win for England today against a Windies team that never seems to show up despite removing Beaumont first ball. Mady Villiers took her first World Cup wicket before conceding her first World Cup run, that's pretty impressive.

So the four semi finalists are Australia, India, England, South Africa.

Not entirely a surprise but it's been a pretty good tournament so far. No real shocks but the standard - fielding aside which has been woeful at times - has been good and the matches mostly competitive.
