England women's team has slogged hard after being knocked out of the previous edition of the Women's World Twenty20, and have been almost unbeatable in the recent times. Mike Selvey in the Guardian writes how proper investment and a clear mission statement has helped the team in its drive to improve.
It is a run of success quite possibly unprecedented by any British team, male or female, in any sport, and it makes Edwards arguably the nation's most prolific leader of all. From it Sarah Taylor has emerged, in her capacity as a wicketkeeper-batsman of genuine first-class standard, as arguably the best female cricketer of all time, and the astounding Lydia Greenway as its finest fielder. England have kept ahead of the game and intend to continue doing so.
