    Anyone think the boundary lines could be extended longer now? Definitely can have 65m boundary lines now, currently the maximum is 60m I think

    There were a few shots which would have been sixes in a men's game. One ended in the crowd.

    Pretty accurate IMO. Also, the match temperament needs to get better. Seen one too many random collapses in the tourney. In terms of chasing Okay-ish totals in big games, women's team's temperament is at the place where men's teams were 20-30 years ago. Nowadays men's team will sleepwalk a target of 229 in 50 overs even in a final unless you are South Africa.

    Batting is ok but bowling is still of really low quality, pacers struggle to get it over 120 and spinners have to bowl at 60kph if they want to turn the ball

    Bowling is inherently harder than batting. It relies on natural talent a lot more. I think thats the reason it hasn't come on the same way the batting has. It's a question of increasing the number of girls playing cricket in order to unearth those talents rather than improved professionalism.

    Disagree. Things like not bowling a waist high no ball every few overs don't need 'natural talent', and I saw a **** ton of those this WC without even watching 10% of the games.

    Nah it's not that hard to limit properly terrible deliveries to one or two a match, just comes from practice. Most decent finger spinners I play with will rarely bowl a single full toss in a match.

    You are all cynical *****. I thought it was an excellent competition - much better than the Champions Trophy - and that the ladies play the game very well,
