Prachi: "Match has turned out to be an awesome thriller! I think Women's world cup matches are more entertaining than mens! Go Taylor.... Go Morgan!"

Manish: "Look what good 20-20 cricket have done to the women's cricket.....suddenly there is great interest in women's cricket and the future is definitely rosy for women's cricket...which will generate more followers all over the world......"

Rolton: "I thought it was a really good score but all credit to England .. to Taylor and Morgan .. it was a fantastic partnership. We would have batted if we had won the toss. we put up a good score but too bad we couldn't defend it. Hopefully there is bigger and better things to come for Women's cricket. We have time to regroup and hopefully, it will be a good Ashes series."

Edwards, Eng captain: This was a massive shake-up for the Women's cricket and we delivered the perfect game today. When I went out to bat, I realised how good wicket it was. That's why we bowled first, we didn't know what was a good score. what a innings from Taylor and Morgan. We have a massive game on Sunday. Hopefully, things will go well."

Player of the Match is Taylor "We were a little bit daunted. It was the biggest target we have chased in T20. But the wicket was good. Lots of talking and lots of running (on the partnership with Morgan). Looking forward to the final. It was great to play in front of many people."

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on.

Andrews to SC Taylor, FOUR runs, Taylorrrrrrrrrr! Whaddaplayaaa! England go through to the final. It was fullish delivery around the off stump and Taylor backed away to play a lovely fierce square drive to the boundary. What a game. Morgan hugs Taylor even as the England dug out erupt. The team rushes out to the middle and there is a huddle of joy.
