  • Women's Cricket World Cup England v India seamer Anya Shrubsole

"You know that in the World Cup final if you can get a breakthrough the pressure is on the new batters coming in", Shrubsole said.

England's total of 228 for seven, boosted by 51 from their talisman Natalie Sciver, always seemed a modest target, not least after India cruised 190 for three.

Indian captain Mithali Raj is now being compared with Sachin Tendulkar for her consistency.

World Cup victor Heather Knight believes England's dramatic finish to clinch victory in the World Cup final will provide a legacy for the next generation of young girls. Dad and I are both pretty competitive people - we want to win anything we do even if it's a game of cards or something like that, so I think that has definitely helped me along the way.

"I got a bit stressed in the nets earlier in the tournament, I was hitting it well but kept getting out which frustrated me - I take my batting very seriously, so Mark (Robinson) was there to tell me I hadn't become a bad player overnight". With this win, England won their fourth World Cup title.

"I'm very proud of the girls..."

Raj's side looked on course to lift the trophy for the first time at 191 for three, chasing 229 for victory, in Sunday's final at the "home of cricket". To bowl out India for 219, she took six wickets in the final. The board that controls cricket in the country announced that they would reward each of the players with a sum of Rs.50 Lakh each for their contribution and work that helped them in entering the final.

The women-in-blue had a dream run in the tournament as they reached the final after beating six-time world champions Australia in the semi-final.

"I am a little lost for words", Shrubsole said. We have experienced campaigners like Harmanpreet, Veda, Punam and they should see to it that they pass on the experience to younger girls. Despite making a great start to the World Cup, when we lost to South Africa and Australia (in league games), no one thought we would get to the final. In the end, England held their nerves while India panicked.

The Indian vice-captain in an interview to NDTV said, "We were all crying after the match". Shikha Pandey made a bad call and was run out by Shrubsole and Taylor.

Sarah Taylor and Nat Sciver steadied the ship for the hosts before the risky Taylor (45) was caught down the leg-side by Sushma Verma to hand Goswami her first wicket.
