    She's right up there in the rankings (think she was no 1 before the ODI WC) think the reasoning is that they want Marsh to open the bowling and Gunn adds a bit more to the batting given there are maybe slight concerns over the middle order

    Wow, pretty dismal batting from new Zealand.

    Looks like the final's going to be a let-down, especially compared to Aus vs Eng, which was easily the match of the tournament.

    Yeah, New Zealand just haven't turned up, very strange. The cameras were showing the NZ dugout after around the 4th over and looking at their body language you'd have thought they had already lost.

    Epic fail.

    Still, the girls at least made it to the final.

    No surprises there.

    Do disagree with this comment by Cricinfo though: "They've been outstanding and are so far ahead of their competition."

    Not the outstanding part, just the so far ahead. Reckon we're pretty evenly matched when we both play well. That's the key, I suppose, but I don't understand how he can say that they're so far ahead after that semi-final...

    Anyway, congratulations to England. Claire Taylor finishing it off again with a four. Really looking forward to the Ashes now.

    The NZ team looked pathetic. Surely this isn't international standard?

    *eyes light up* ... too easy


    Anyway from what I've seen the women's teams are very top heavy (I'm sure I could phrase that better), the top 3-4 batsmen are usually leagues ahead of the rest - so early wickets are absolutely huge and generally decide the match.

    Nah, the match was a big let-down. Semi-final was a cracker though, should have watched that instead.

    Caught a bit of this the other day. Is amazing how much Claire Taylor with her helmet on looks like Ian Bell. And how much all the blondes look like Nathan Bracken.

    Isn't Gunn sort an an all-rounder though?
