England captain Heather Knight is hoping to repeat the success at Lord’s last year, when her team lifted the ICC Women’s World Cup beating India in a thriller in front of a packed house.
“I know the West Indies will be keen to put on a great show and hopefully we can play some entertaining cricket that the fans enjoy,” Knight shared in a first-person article for the ICC. “It would be nice if we could repeat what happened at Lord’s last summer as well.”
Knight still remembers the memorable 23 July match which England won by nine runs and notes how the women’s game has progressed over the past few years.
“The ICC Women’s World Cup – that we were lucky enough to host last summer – was an amazing advert for the women’s game and further proof that more and more people are flocking to our sport.
“We are constantly progressing, and it makes me incredibly excited to think of where we’ll be in two years, four years and so on.”
