Classy Shrubsole bowls England to triumph in game-changing World Cup

But it didn't matter to the fans as they congratulated the team for having done so well in the tournament.

Chasing 229 for victory, opener Punam Raut played fantastically to score 84 but her dismissal proved to be the turning point of the match as India capitulated in front of a sell-out crowd.

After winning the toss England team had elected to bat and made a decent total of 228 for the loss of seven wickets.

With the ball, Anya provided her team with an early breakthrough by sending Smriti Mandhana packing after India had only put 5 runs on the board.

Despite the enormous nature of the occasion, the target was indeed achievable and India did well to march towards it thanks to sensible knocks from Punam Raut (86) and Harmanpreet Kaur (51). England first came back into the match after Alex Hartley removed Harmanpreet Kaur for 51 and from there on the match became all about Shrubsole. Remember, catches win matches", he said.In another tweet, the prime minister referred to veteran Jhulan Goswami."Jhulan Goswami is India's pride, whose wonderful bowling helps the team in key situations. Despite the runners up finish, the Indian women cricket team has done the entire nation proud with their brilliant performance in the tournament.

The host nation posted just 228/7 from their 50 overs as Jhulan Goswami (3/23) and Poonam (2/36) starred with the ball.

England vice-captain Anya Shrubsole was still riding the high of a player-of-the-match performance after taking 6-46 to lead England to the World Cup, but she too was looking ahead to the Australian summer. He wrote: "Our women cricketers gave their best today". But her blushes were spared when Shrubsole bowled Rajeshwari Gayakwad off the very next ball.

Veda Krishnamurthy was set but fell with a poor shot across the line that looped straight up to Natalie Sciver at mid wicket.

But Mithali praised her team-mates for their show in the World Cup and blamed inexperiece for their defeat in the summit clash.

"We can take a lot of confidence from this tournament and we can take that out to Australia and we know it'll be a really hard fought Ashes series". "It's a World Cup final, there's a huge amount of pressure, so much pressure on new batters coming in".

"We knew that if we stayed on till the end and brought the rate up over five or six an over, we would be in the game", an elated Knight said.
