“I’m a little little bit shed for words and phrases, if I’m straightforward. Just an unbelievable game. It appeared for a minute like we were out of it, but a single of the wonderful points about this staff is we never give up. Alex Hartley obtained that very important wicket of Harmanpreet (Kaur) and we never appeared back again from there.
“It is really more that you will not want the game to be ruined by rain. It was just an remarkable game from start out to end, and I consider it is really a really fitting final for what is actually been a brilliant Earth Cup. It is really a Earth Cup final, you can find a huge volume of strain, so a great deal strain on new batters coming in. We never let the run level get away from us, even while we were not finding wickets, so we realized if we obtained a pair, we would be ideal in the game. It is really a aspiration, and a aspiration you never consider is going to arrive true. Listed here, seeing my father enjoy in the club countrywide knockouts, so to be back again 16 many years later on as a Earth Cup winner is just remarkable.”
“I cannot quit smiling, to be straightforward. So very pleased of that team of women, they have been fantastic. We’ve made it challenging for ourselves this event, but I could not treatment fewer. We received people truly tight games, which is some thing we preferred to do the job on over the very last 18 months. Again in Delhi feels like a lengthy time ago, but it was the earning of this staff. All we have performed in the very last 18 months is to offer with circumstances like that. Anya Shrubsole, what a hero. What a working day.
“Credit rating to India, they had a brilliant event and performed truly perfectly. Punam (Raut) was batting outstandingly and they obtained some partnerships alongside one another. I believed if we hung in there and let the level continue to be all-around five or 6 that we would normally be in the game. The women truly held their nerve. We took our catches at the conclusion, aside from that little a single by Jenny Gunn which was slightly demanding, but the key detail is we obtained over the line and have obtained the trophy. Just want to thank the group, the assistance has been fantastic all over the event. With any luck , following our accomplishment, we can mature the game in this region. There has never been a superior time for women to enjoy.”
“Robbo (Mark Robinson, the mentor) had to remind me that I have been executing perfectly. So quite a few of the women stood up. It is really been a wonderful staff functionality. Myself and Lauren obtained off to a fantastic start out, but we believed we threw it away. But our batting order has been wonderful. Jenny Gunn and Katherine Brunt were great. Complete credit to Raut and Kaur, they put on an exceptional partnership. In my head, it was never in doubt, we realized a single wicket could adjust points. It was back again in April that we all came listed here to the Lord’s tour. Ton of challenging do the job went into it, all for just this moment.”
“Most likely could not have been a superior comeback, I’m just so very pleased of the women. It is really been a roller coaster calendar year for me, but to be part of this staff has been basically outstanding. For me, it was a scenario of being balanced, just get back again training and see how I go. I was just blessed to be listed here for the Earth Cup. India performed extremely perfectly and we have been there, so we know it hurts. But I guess you have to rebuild, arrive back again much better, and this will make them superior cricketers and superior people. Excellent luck to them in the foreseeable future. Heather Knight’s such a serene character, there was no strain on us at all. She just lets us enjoy our game. She’s been an outstanding character for us and an outstanding person.”
“I cannot believe that it. This is what we have been doing the job for. The women were certainly fantastic. It is really a aspiration arrive true for all of us. I have never stepped onto Lord’s before in a game, certainly fantastic that we managed to pull it off. At that moment, you cannot truly consider of that (that a Earth Cup is at stake), you get as well anxious. For me, it is really just yet another cricket game, but at the back again of the mind, it was the Earth Cup. Anya Shrubsole, what a hero.”
“Assume I bowled all right, but Anya was just fantastic at the conclusion, to take all people wickets underneath strain was fantastic. I consider in a Earth Cup final, every run is truly critical. We normally realized we are ideal in the game. We just stuck in there, it was brilliant.”
“We realized we would be ready to pull by way of. We’ve performed it before we realized we could do it all over again. Credit rating to Anya, she was remarkable. Absolutely everyone was remarkable. I cannot tell you what was going by way of my head. I guess just past encounters, realizing that 20,000 people are driving you and also the 11 women on the pitch and the assistance workers, all keen you on, and which is normally going to hold you serene. It was remarkable, an outstanding encounter. I cannot picture daily life following the Earth Cup.”
“It is really brilliant to be listed here at Dwelling of Cricket, Lord’s, home assistance, in front of spouse and children and pals, is just remarkable. This is a single of the very best teams I have performed with.”
England mentor Mark Robinson
“India performed truly perfectly, but I’m so very pleased of the women. We realized we were 30 gentle, but we realized we were normally in the game. The wicket has been made use of before, early in the calendar year, so gradual bowlers were normally going to be challenging to get away. So it was a battling score. This staff has a great deal of coronary heart, great deal of bravery. We just required that crack every now and then, and when we had that crack, we were ideal in this game. The game’s truly grown, has been incredibly backed by the ICC, it has been promoted, the media has obtained driving it. And what an atmosphere these days. I truly appreciated it. I was desperate for us to win, but it is really such a wonderful event, and I just appreciated every minute of it. The women have been truly perfectly-behaved this vacation, I will not suppose they will be tonight.”
