    Yeah, was just about to say... Thoroughly deserved too. Reckon Claire Taylor would be next in line.

    Funny enough i thought this was a team game

    Didnt the entire mens team get an MBE just for winning 1 Ashes series? Vaughen got an OBE if my memory is right.

    The MBE's and so on are more meant to be about being an ambassador for the sport, really. Often the captain gets one in a team game.

    It's the gong's after the Ashes that were daft, rather than the current one given only to Edwards.

    I was thinking Stuart Broad myself.

    Anyway well done, well deserved. Clearly the Aussies match up quite well against England, for whatever reason, but we're so much more dominant against the other sides, that we're clearly the best.

    and there aren't many sports we can say that about

    Intended to link this yesterday, but must have forgotten.

    Best XI of this tournament, named by the ICC's panel of experts.

    No real surprises. Shelley Nitschke the only Australian, just like the ODI WC equivalent from March.

    There is a big "Competitive Gap" between the Asian teams and the other teams. NZ, ENG, AUS, SA have a much higher level of game play then any of the Asian teams.

    Not all the teams should get ODI caps automatically in Women Cricket as well there has to be a standard as is in the Men's team.
