It was a great opportunity for the Women in Blue to lift their maiden World Cup title but it wasn’t to be, as hosts England staged a dramatic fightback and clinched a nail biting thriller by nine runs to lift their 4th World Cup title in their history. It was Anya Shurbsole who produced a magical spell of 6/44 and pegged the Indians back.
India looked set for a victory with Harmanpreet Kaur and Punam Raut going great guns but with the fall of Harman and Punam, it was a collapse and apart from Veda Krishnamurthy, nobody could get going. Shrubsole dismissed Punam and Veda Krishnamurthy at crucial junctures which eventually helped England win the match by nine runs.
So with the final of the Women’s World Cup done and dusted, let us have a look at the player ratings of the Indian team in the final.
