 Women’s ODI World Cup

ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup: A sensational opening act involving three openers

While the first match of the World Cup itself was a great spectacle, one cannot help but feel it was a bit more significant than just the result.

The day started with Deandra Dottin going 4-0-4-0-0-4 in the first over with the bat.

it finished with Deandra Dottin going 1-W-1-W-W with the ball. 

A sensational century by Hayley Matthews and a gritty one by Sophie Devine was bookended by fours, dots and Dottin.

we borrow a line from the social media post from Cricket West Indies: “What in the Cricket World Cup just happened?!!”

The result, for the record, is that West Indies won by three runs against Devine’s White Ferns.

But the feeling, that probably is a bit more difficult to capture in words, is: welcome back ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup. 

While the match itself was a great spectacle, one cannot help but feel it was a bit more significant than just the result.

It’s been 1,685 days since the epic final at Lord’s between Heather Knight’s England and Mithali Raj’s India.

A tournament that changed the landscape for the game. 

 That was followed by a standalone T20 World Cup in the Caribbean in 2018 

Then a magnificent T20 World Cup in Australia in 2020 that culminated with a record 86,000-plus in attendance at MCG.
