Excellent win today for the Bears-we can still qualify with more performances like this.

As a female posting on this forum, I hope It's your poor attempt at humour otherwise you really are a misogynistic idiot!

A very enjoyable game at Edgbaston this afternoon, Pollock a very clean hitter of the ball. Nice to see.

I think Pete60 must watch some very high quality village cricket - I've been amazed by the quality of women's cricket this summer. When I compare it to 10/20 years ago the progress is staggering.

Great to see the Bears win - I feared that another defeat could completely write off the season, now at least there's a glimmer of hope of progressing.

Agree totally about the improvement in women's cricket. Why their win today can't just be celebrated without the need to make unnecessary comments is beyond me.

Congratulations to the England team.

It's a shame Rachel Heyoe-Flint is sadly no longer with us to see the success of the England team, and more importantly, the success of the tournament, will full grounds, massive media coverage & a full house a Lords. Without her pioneering work and vision none of this would have been possible. The trophy really should be named in her honor.

There are GOOD Mugabe's

We need more young players like Pollock.
Heard in the Hollies Stand:
"Wouldn't it be great if we had another Pollock, George."
"Well, Harold, medical science is a wonderful thing."

Actually, that's just an adapted version of a 1967 Private Eye cover featuring Harold Wilson and
George Brown

They honoured her before the match with a minutes applause which was great. The England ladies have been brilliant. they have come back in many games from losing positions. Every player has contributed in getting them there apart from maybe Winfield who hasn't had the best of tournaments. it was Shrubsoles turn today to produce a match winning performance. They all play with a  smile which is great to see. Ladies cricket is definitely on the up

Well done to the ladies. So many times in the past we seem to get in a good position and not kick on and score at 8/10 an over in the last half of our innings so really good to see us achieve this scoring rate today for a change. I think the last time we scored like this was finals day when we won it in 2014. More of the same please for the rest of the T20 Season.

Good to see the 2 openers get a good start. What I liked about Pollock was his lack of respect for the bowlers. I get fed up with a batman who plays a bowler on reputation. If you think you can put a bowler over the ropes then have a go and do it, not piddle about playing 'Pat-him-around-for-a-single' nonsense, there is not enough time in a T20 to keep playing bowlers around for 5-6 an over and for a debutant, it was such a fresh approach. No one should have a go at the women's team, the standard has risen so much in a few years and I wish a few of the men could bowl Yorkers like Anya Shrubsole.

Fantastic game & another great advert for the ladies game, Anya Shrubsole 5-11off19balls I would suggest is better than village green standard & after the Middlesex match this was the best game of cricket I have seen this year

Men will always have the physical advantage anyway even though women are getting stronger. In tennis Ostapenko hits her forehand harder than Andy Murray. The gap between the genders is closing. I think we'll see women bowlers getting faster in the next few years. Low 70s top. that's the biggest difference right now for me. Wont be long before we see  a woman bowl at 85 moh

As possibly the only female posting on here, (am I? ) not sure what debate there is to be had! Women's cricket is different to men's but the
women are World Cup holders and the men aren't. Simples!

Actually Pete the final had 100 million viewers worldwide. What was the open championship viewing figures? Also I think if the golf had produced a British winner it might have been different. I agree the bbc are too pc and give paraplegic athletes too much attention. I couldn't possibly watch wheelchair tennis for instance but I think womens sport should be on equal footing with mens sports. I would rather watch womens tennis than mens tennis not because of what they look like but because I find it more interesting. Anyway you don't get all the fancy dress and barmy army crap with womens cricket. although that will eventually change.
