Before, Pakistan legend Waqar had tweeted out saying that the women’s cricket matches should be decreased into 30-overs a negative instead of a conventional 50-over One-Day International. His reason behind this suggestion to this Ineternational Cricket Council (ICC) has been the lesser overs supposed that the pace of the match will be quickly and bowlers will have the ability to put more effort as well. Not only that, it would also bring more viewers along with the cricket will be competitive.

But, his suggestion confronted some backlash from girls, who said that they’re completely effective at playing a 50-over match and the amount of cricket can be competitive. Australia celebrity, Alyssa Healy also replied back to him and defended the present format. Incidentally, Healy was one of the celebrities of this day using the bat. She came in at No. 7 and slammed an unbeaten 40-ball 63 against Pakistan. Her innings was studded with nine fours and a single highest.

While Healy demonstrated her purpose with the bat, others also stepped up and performed brilliantly in their respective matches.


England captain Heather Knight won the toss and chose to bat first against a powerful South African bowling line-up that bowled West Indies out for 48 in their previous game.

England dropped Lauren Winfield early with the score on 59/1 by 11.3 overs. England wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor then joined opener Tammy Beaumont at the crease and the duo stitched along a competitive 275-run partnership for the next wicket.

Taylor and Beaumont attacked the bowlers straight from the word go and both of them brought up their hundreds in rapid succession.

But, Taylor fell for 147 off just 104 balls while Beaumont scored a 145-ball 148. The prior hit 24 bounds within her knock while the latter was stitched together with 22 fours and one highest.

Taylor was hitting at a strike-rate of 141.35 while Beaumont’s strike-rate was 102.07.

Their blistering knocks helped the 3 Lions score a mammoth 373/5 from their 50 overs.

Taylor along with Beaumont’s 140’s has been the first time when two batswomen have scored over 140 in the exact innings. It has never occurred in men’s cricket too.

Their 100 and scores will also be the eighth time that two Language batswomen have scored over a hundred runs in the exact innings. Australians have done that four occasions while Indians have achieved that feat twice. New Zealand and West Indies have done this one time each.


The trio of Alyssa Healy, Ellyse Perry and Elyse Villani aided Australia score 290/8 from their 50 overs against Pakistan.

Australia were rocked early by Diana Baig and Asmavia Iqbal. They removed the openers in rapid succession and put the Aussies in a spot of trouble at 7/2 from 5.4 overs. Subsequently captain Rachael Haynes and Perry put up a 53-run partnership for the third wicket until Haynes fell for 28. Perry and Villani dressed together a 83-run rack for the fourth wicket before the latter fell for a 40-ball 59.

Once Perry fell, Australia were fighting at 203/6 however Healy’s aggressive batting to the end made certain that Australia place a good score on this board.

Villani hit five fours and four maximums in her innings while Healy hit nine boundaries and a six. Perry’s 97-ball 66 was stitched together with five fours.


The Indian girls continued their remarkable show in England.

Sharma, who’d earlier previously forged a listing breaking 189 against South Africa, slammed 78 off 110 balls. Mithali (53) to the other hand hit her eighth fifty from 10 games.

India lost two early wickets at Smriti Mandhana and Punam Raut. Sharma and Mithali obtained together after the fall of Raut’s wicket and also they needed to build the innings. The duo maintained the scorecard ticking and helped India regain momentum in the game.

Sharma completed her first time fifty and stepped on the accelerator. She dropped for a nicely played 110-ball 78, hitting 10 fours in her innings. Mithali could not continue for long as she fell three overs later as well. The India captain’s innings was stitched with four boundaries.

It was due to this duo’s 118-run partnership for the next wicket which India reached a respectable amount of 232/8 from their full quota of overs at Derby.
