Mar 22, 2009England women�s cricket team romped to their third World Cup title, beating New Zealand by four wickets in a thrilling final at North Sydney Oval on Sunday.
England fast bowler Nickyi Shaw produced her career-best figure of four for 34 as New Zealand were bowled out for 166 in 47.2 overs after electing to bat first. In response, England made hard work of the run-chase, slipping from 74-0 to 149-6 but held their nerve to achieve the victory target with 23 balls to spare.
It is England�s third World Cup triumph but their first outside England following its victories in 1973 and 1993.
Shaw, the 27-year-old from Warwickshire, also pitched in with the bat, hitting 17 not out from 23 balls with two fours that earned her the player-of-the-final award.

Mar 21, 2009Shanel Daley took a career-best 4 for 29 to bowl out Pakistan for 131 and clinch a three-wicket win for West Indies which let them retain the fifth place in the world rankings. The two sides will have to play the World Cup qualifiers to make the cut for the 2013 edition.
Charlene Taitt�s 26 helped West Indies defeat Pakistan by three wickets to finish at fifth place in the Women�s World Cup. Windies had lost six wickets with less than 100 on the board and at one time where in trouble. Then Charlene Taitt and Danielle Small combined to score 32 runs for the eighth wicket passing the victory run margin.
Sana Mir bowled a fantastic spell and was the one to have brought Pakistan back in the game. Stefanie Taylor scored a quickfire 24 off 18 balls to get the Windies off to a flyer. Earlier, Shanel Daley ripped open the Pakistan batting attack picking up four wickets, giving away just 29 runs in her 10 overs.

IND v AUS, ICC WWC 2009, 3rd Place Play Off: India beat Australia to win 3rd spot
Mar 21, 2009India secured third place at the ICC Women's World Cup after defeating Australia by three wickets at Bankstown Oval on Saturday.
Having dismissed the home side for 142 in 44.4 overs, the Indians achieved their victory target with 13 balls to spare in a match shortened to 46 overs a side due to heavy rain. Australia were in trouble on 63 for five in the 27th over before captain Karen Rolton and Lisa Sthalekar put on 60 runs for the sixth wicket to give the hosts something to defend.
Rolton top-scored for the home side with 52 while the wickets were evenly shared out between the Indian bowlers with Jhulan Goswami (2-21), Priyanka Roy (2-21), Rumeli Dhar (2-24) and Gouher Sultana (2-27) picking up two wickets each. India were unspectacular in their run chase but Sulakshana Naik's 28 and Rumeli Dhar unbeaten 24 ensured that they reached their target in the 44th over.

AUS v ENG, ICC WWC 2009, Super 6: Australians beat England but miss World Cup final
Mar 19, 2009Australia shattered England's unbeaten record, but still failed to make Sunday's Women's Cricket World Cup final.
The defending champion and host nation produced their best performance in six matches, after earlier losses to New Zealand and India proved fatal to their chances of winning a sixth title. Australia became the first team in the current tournament to bowl England out, dismissing them for 161 in the 50th over.
It was England's first loss in 21 one day internationals, but it was a hollow victory for Australia, who knocked off the modest target in 34.5 overs. Australia's only chance of making the final rested on Pakistan upsetting New Zealand, but the White Ferns effectively sealed their spot with an extraordinary batting performance.
New Zealand blasted 7-373, the highest score of the tournament with youngster Suzie Bates slamming 168 off 105 balls and featuring in a double century stand with captain Haidee Tiffen (100). Australia's victory over England was set up by some fine new ball bowling from Sarah Andrews (3-35 off 8.3 overs).
England slumped to 3-46 before a fourth wicket stand between Claire Taylor (49) and Lydia Greenway (22) added 60 for the fourth wicket. England's inning subsided again after they lost 4-9 to crash to 7-115 in the 35th over.
Spinners Shelley Nitschke (2-14 off 10) and Lisa Sthalekar (2-31 off 10) worked their way through the bottom half of the order. Australia made light work of their run chase with openers Nitschke (37 off 43) and Leah Poulton (38 off 47) piling on 79 in just 14.3 overs.
Both fell in the first two overs of the bowling powerplay, but captain Karen Rolton (41 not out off 55) and her deputy Alex Blackwell (38 off 58) hurried their side to a comfortable win with their unbroken 83 run partnership. Australia will now play India in the third and fourth place play offs at Sydney's Bankstown Oval on Saturday.

IND v WI, ICC WWC 2009, Super 6: India out of ICC Women's WC despite win over West Indies
Mar 19, 2009India defeated West Indies comprehensively by eight-wickets in Sydney on Thursday but the result was not good enough to ensure them a place in Sunday's summit-clash of the ICC Women's cricket World Cup.
The Indians, who had a slim chance of making it to the final show down, were dealt a severe blow with Australia tilting their fate by posting a eight-wicket win over England in another Super Six match on Thursday. For progressing to the final, India needed to beat the West Indies on Thursday and hoped that New Zealand go down to Pakistan and England beat Australia in the respective Super Six matches.
India, however, got a chance to make amends for the disappointment as the win over West Indies has ensured them a place in the third-place playoff match against Australia on Saturday with both the teams automatically qualifying for the next World Cup. Chasing a timid target of 84 at the Bankstown Oval in Sydney, the Indians romped home with 193 balls to spare with opener Sulakshana Naik (39 0ff 48) and in-form Mithali Raj (34 off 41) doing the bulk of the scoring.
Earlier, West Indian skipper Merissa Aguilleira's decision to bat first backfired as right-arm spinner Priyanka Roy (4/14) recorded her career-best figures to run through the West Indian batting order after Amita Sharma (2/14) and Rumeli Dhar (1/16) did the early damage

NZ v PAK, ICC WWC 2009, Super 6: New Zealand thrash Pakistan by 223 runs
Mar 19, 2009Riding high on scintillating centuries by captain Haidee Tiffen and Suzie Bates, New Zealand entered their third World Cup final defeating Pakistan by a mammoth 223 runs at Sydney.
Bates blasted Pakistani bowlers to all parts of the ground while making a brilliant 168 of just 105 balls, while skipper Tiffen scored her maiden century to propel their team to a challenging total of 373 runs. Both shared a record partnership of 262 runs. Their total was the third highest in Womens World Cups and the sixth highest overall in women��s cricket.
Pakistan captain Urooj Mumtaz was left hapless by the Kiwi blitzkrieg. She used as many as eight bowlers in the innings. Mumtaz herself was the most expensive bowler as she gave away 20 runs in an over.While Naiila Nazir and Sajjida Shah grabbed two wickets apiece. Pakistan made a valiant effort to chase, scoring their second highest total of the tournament, but went down by 223 runs.
They were bowled out for 150 in 48.1 overs. For Pakistan, Nain Abidi scored 52 of 104 balls. Pakistan will now face West-Indies for a fifth-place playoff.
The final will be played between New Zealand and England on Sunday.

ENG v WI, ICC WWC 2009, Super 6: England seal final spot
Mar 17, 2009England clinched a place in the Women's World Cup final with a 146-run win against West Indies in Sydney.
The top order paved the way again with openers Sarah Taylor (78) and Caroline Atkins (50) laying the foundation as England reached 236-8.
West Indies's reply was quickly undermined by early wickets as they slumped to 22-4, before being bowled out for just 90 in 38.2 overs.

IND v NZ, ICC WWC 2009, Super 6: Kiwis shatter India�s final hopes in Women World Cup
Mar 17, 2009New Zealand inched closer to the Women Cricket World Cup final with a five-wicket win over India in the Super Six stage here at the North Sydney Oval on Tuesday.
Batting first, India were all out for 207 in 49.4 overs. They reached their second 200-plus total of the tournament only after Anjum Chopra (52) and Mithali Raj (21) pulled them out of trouble. Chopra and Raj put on 36 runs but only at three an over. It was left to the lower order to provide some push and Reema Malhotra did just that with a quickfire maiden half-century. She remained unbeaten on 59, got good support from the tail, adding 27 at more than five an over with Amita Sharma (14 off 16) and 44 at more than nine an over with Harmanpreet Kaur (13 off 16).
However, the New Zealand medium-pacers, Nicola Browne and Bates, bowled very well with accurate line and length to keep India�s scoring rate down. The target of 208 was competitive but Kate Pulford set up the chase with an 89-ball 71 and a nerveless Suzie Bates (47 not out) saw them through after the Indian spinners had struck with quick wickets.
The 78-run opening partnership between Pulford and Haidee Tiffen - their first half-century stand of the tournament - put New Zealand on the course of victory.

PAK v WI, ICC WWC 2009, Super 6: Akram inspires Pakistan victory
Mar 14, 2009Pakistan picked up their second win of the Women's World Cup with a four-wicket victory over the West Indies at Drummoyne Oval in Sydney.
Almas Akram was in inspired form for Pakistan as she took three for seven to reduce the West Indies to 24 for four early in their innings. Stafanie Taylor's 55 helped the West Indies rebuild before Anisa Mohammed's late order resistance pushed them up to 132 for nine in 50 overs as she finished 12 not out.
Pakistan then found themselves struggling at 55 for five early in their run chase due to some good bowling from the West Indies. But an unbeaten 43 from 48 balls by Armaan Khan helped turn things round as Pakistan secured the victory with 13 balls to spare.

NZ v ENG, ICC WWC 2009, Super 6: Edwards leads England to another victory
Mar 14, 2009England's 31-run win over New Zealand in their opening Super Six match at the ICC Women's World Cup means they are the only unbeaten team in the tournament.
Captain Charlotte Edwards was the cornerstone of England's success with bat and ball in Sydney, top-scoring with 57 from 79 balls at number four in 201 for five and then taking four for 37 as New Zealand were bowled out for 170 in 48.4 overs. England chose to bat first and were indebted to Edwards, who shared an important fifth-wicket stand of 62 with Beth Morgan.
New Zealand's reply rarely looked on course. A hard-working half-century at the top of the order from Edwards' opposite number Haidee Tiffen (53) gave them a chance, but wickets kept falling in clusters - and after Tiffen was seventh out, to Edwards, England had the match in safe keeping.
Despite her own outstanding performance, Edwards insisted England were strong in all departments.

IND v AUS, ICC WWC 2009, Super 6: India beat Australia by 16 runs
Mar 14, 2009An inspired India stunned world champions Australia by 16 runs to start their Super Six campaign in style at the ICC Women's World Cup cricket tournament at Sydney.
Australian skipper Karen Rolton's decision to field first backfired as Indian openers Anagha Despandhe (45) and Anjum Chopra (76) gave a steady start to the visitors' innings.
A late onslaught by Amita Sharma (31) and Harmanpreet Kaur helped the Indians accumulate 73 runs in the last seven overs and take the total to a respectable 234 for five in the alloted 50 overs.
Although Australia started their run chase on a confident note, the Jhulan Goswami-led Indian attack restricted the hosts to 219 for seven in their 50 overs. For the Aussies, this was their second defeat in the tournament.

South Africa, in turn, achieved victory in 28.3 overs with Trisha Chetty (41 not out) and Cri-Zelda Brits (31 not out) putting on 72 runs for the unbroken second wicket partnership.

Led by four-wicket hauls from Aimee Mason and Suzie Bates, the White Ferns dismissed winless South Africa for just 51 in the 23rd over.

IND v SL, ICC WWC 2009: Mithali leads India to World Cup Super Stage
Mar 12, 2009Mithali Raj stood tall amid the ruins as India edged out Sri Lanka by 35 runs to book a place in the Super Six stage of the ICC Women's World Cup cricket tournament at Sydney.
Opting to bat first in the Group B match at the Bankstown Oval, India slumped to 78 for seven before an unbeaten 59-run stand for the seventh wicket between former captain Mithali (75) and incumbent Jhulan Goswami (24) guided the side to 137 for seven, a total that looked far from imposing.
India had a disastrous start to their innings and by the sixth over, they had lost their two top-order batters to slump to 11 for two. Mithali, who had contributed 59 out of 169 against England, came to India's rescue once again and the fact that she hit just one four in her unbeaten 120-ball knock speaks volumes of her grit when wickets kept tumbling at the other end.
IND v SL, ICC WWC 2009: India Women 137-7 (50.0 overs) beat Sri Lanka Women 102 (44.2 overs) by 35 runs
ENG v PAK, ICC WWC 2009: England beat Pakistan by 8 wickets
Mar 12, 2009Laura Marsh claimed a five-wicket haul as England eased to an eight-wicket win over Pakistan in Sydney to head into the Super Six stage of the ICC Women's World Cup with a perfect record from Group B.
Pakistan failed to deal with spin duo Marsh and Holly Colvin and were dismissed for just 78 as the pair posted combined figures of six for just 23 from their 20 overs. Marsh's five wickets cost just 15 runs, while the efficient Colvin bowled seven maidens before she was rewarded with a late scalp.
In reply, England lost wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor at the start of the fifth over when she was caught by Javeria Khan off Qanita Jalil for 11, but Ebony-Jewel Rainsford-Brent and captain Edwards comfortably guided England past the 50 mark.
Rainsford-Brent (18) departed as she attempted to take on spinner Sana Mir to leave England 54 for two. But Edwards and Lydia Greenway combined with a 28-run partnership to guide England over the line with 26 overs to spare.

Electing to bat first, Pakistan posted 161-7 in 50 overs and later shot out Sri Lanka for 104 in 39.4 overs to win the match and strengthened their claim for a place in the Super Six stage.
Qanita was the star of Pakistan win as she first played a quickfire 19-run innings and then ripped through the Lankan top order, returning with a figure of 8-0-33-3. She was well supported by all-rounder Sana Mir who followed up her unbeaten 22 with 2-18.
Chasing 161 Sri Lanka made a tottering start as they were reduced to 28-3. Lanka skipper Shashikala Siriwardena stood amid the ruins, hitting a fighting 58 off 111 balls with eight fours but once she was removed by a smartly run-out by Javeria Khan, Pakistan took just 22 balls to wrap up Lankan innings.

The 33-year-old's eighth ODI ton - 101 from 95 balls - and a more pedestrian 50 from opener Caroline Atkins helped England post 277 for five after being asked to bat first.
