Women's Quadrangular Series

A (belated) congratulations to England for their excellent performance in the NatWest Women's Quadrangular Series, triumphing in the final by 34 runs.

Unsurprisingly it was England and Australia, the top-ranked international teams, who made it to the final.

Despite the fact that their match just a few days before at the home of cricket had been won by Australia, the final on July 7th enabled England's team to show off the all-round talent of their current squad. Highlights were Lydia Greenway's 58, Arran Brindle's 27 from 18 balls and Katherine Brunt's career-best 5 for 18.

Overall a positive summer for England women, though a couple of negatives to note:
1) The lack of press coverage, despite England's success. Sky also seems to have only broadcast the T20 series.
2) Where the final was played, ie Wormsley, in Staffordshire. If you're asking 'where?' you won't be alone.
