World Cup dream over for Anya Shrubsole an England Women
Bath seamer Anya Shrubsole’s sensational form will not be rewarded with a second ICC Women’s World Cup crown after holders England were knocked out of the tournament today.
The West Indies’ victory over Australia in the last round of Super Six matches in Mumbai ended England’s chances of retaining the title they won in Sydney four years ago.
It also reduced their day/night match with New Zealand to little more than a dead rubber, with the sides due to meet again in the third-place play- off tomorrow.
Going into the match, 21-year-old Shrubsole had taken 13 wickets in her previous four outings.

She returned career-best figures of 5-17 as England romped to a seven-wicket victory over South Africa on Sunday to keep their qualification hopes alive.
The former Hayesfield schoolgirl was in imperious form, removing all of the Proteas’ top five batters before they stumbled to just 77 all out.
She also played a starring role in last Friday’s ultimately decisive two-run defeat to Australia, taking 3-24 and holding three catches to restrict England’s fiercest rivals to 147.
Batting at number 11, Shrubsole was then left stranded at the crease on 13 not out after she and Holly Colvin almost salvaged an unlikely victory.
