    Women's Twenty20 World Cup

    Fixtures

    Starts a week after the men, and finishes with semi's and final as the 'warm-up' games for the men's equivalent matches.

    I reckon England are in with a good chance, but we'll see how they go for coping with the pressure of being favourites and also at home. I reckon whoever wins will be whoever deals best with playing in front of a big crowd. I think quite a lot of people will turn up to watch who have tickets for the men's match, and these players will never really have had to play in front of such a big crowd before.

    Glad you made this thread.

    Am really looking forward to seeing how they all go, especially after what happened in the World Cup over here. Believe Australia beat England last time they played a Twenty20, which was also a warm-up for the men's match, so should be very interesting to see what happens there.

    Same scenario as it was for Aus with the World Cup, and we all know what happened there...

    I honestly think we'll win.

    My mum is a recent cricket fan (thanks to Twenty 20, she now watches tests and everything!) and we watched the ODI World Cup so hopefully we'll make it a double.
    All-Time Test XI:
    Gavaskar, Boycott, Tendulkar, G.Pollock, V.Richards, Sobers, Gilchrist (wk), Warne (c), Waqar/Wasim, Lillee, Ambrose.

    England , Australia & Newzealand , one of these 'll win it
    England 'll 've more chances to win it cuz of better players( never watched woman cricket before except last world cup) so i guess england 'll 've more chances
    & about Pakistan, well maybe they 'll win 1 match depending upon which team do they play against

    Australia have beaten NZ quite happily in the warm-ups. England don't seem to be having any warm-up matches at the moment, I hope that they're playing somewhere.

    Some really good bowling performances there by the Aussies, NZ really struggled.

    Pretty happy with how we shaped up there.

    Seriously though, aren't England favourites for this? Didn't they win the ODI World Cup too?

    Stuart Broad wouldn't be good enough to make the team, surely...
