    Agreed, she is definitely one to watch for the future.

    Very dominant win by England. Ten wicket triumphs not all that common in T20s.

    Really looking forward to seeing how we go today. Hope we can put in a good showing.

    Great start by the White Ferns.

    Never heard of Sian Ruck, but she's having one top game thus far.

    3/12 off her four, so not bad at all...

    Reckon we pulled it back a bit at the end with Sthalekar playing very nicely there. Rest of our batting didn't do so well though. Should be an interesting chase either way.

    Yeah, the Aussies pulled it back really nicely. A good score in the end.

    Should be a very interesting run chase.

    123 very defendable based on what I've seen in these women's games.

    Watkins and Bates just too good...

    Could have gone either way, but it's been a real classy innings by Watkins. It's a trivial matter now.

    An upset on the cards in today's game?

    West Indies going along very nicely against the Aussies: West Indies Women 119/5 (16.4/20 ov)

    Was a bit surprised when I saw that tbh, but we pulled it back nicely at the end. WI probably should have made a lot more of that position.

    Sthalekar bowling very nicely, as always.

    Yeah likewise, finishing up on 134 is pretty disappointing, but still it's fairly decent.

    Sthalekar is one great cricketer, seems to always do well. Haven't seen a big score from Rolton in a while, perhaps this could be her day.

    Had similar thoughts re. Rolton. She's just one of those players that you expect a big score from. Got a 90-odd and 50 in the WC in March, but has been fairly quiet since then, so definitely expect her to cash in soon. She'll probably be feeling the pressure as well, this being her last tournament as captain.

    Meanwhile, we've made a fairly solid start to the chase. Nitschke very important to how it goes.

    Looking back over Sthalekar's performances in the T20 warm-ups, and she has been very consistent bowling-wise. Figures of 3-12 (with one maiden), 3-11, and 2-25 speak for themselves. And she can bat a bit too.

    EDIT: Nitschke looking very good here.

    Not too upset Poulton's gone; gives Sthalekar a chance to shine. Nitschke seems to be playing a similar innings to Dottin, really deserves a 50.

    Would say we're on top at the halfway stage.

    EDIT: Haha, wow. I blinked and now we only need 22. Much better batting performance this time round.

    Well putting the England score in to perspective, SL are 14/3 after 6.1 overs. Tough pitch

    47/6 after 14.1 now, looks like England are in the semis

    Looks like England vs Australia & NZ vs India. Should be good games for the tv cameras. Aussie will be pretty confident after their performance against us in the warmups
