BCCI treasurer Arun Singh Dhumal says Hundred experience will boost India Women’s World Cup hopes

“The idea is for them to get exposure in England,” BCCI treasurer Arun Singh Dhumal says

The BCCI has said the participation of its top women players in The Hundred in England will give them much needed experience and exposure to elite opposition ahead of the 50-overs World Cup in New Zealand next year.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) does not allow its male players to participate in overseas franchise-based leagues, though some of the Test specialists play county cricket in England.

The inaugural edition of the 100-ball competition, which features eight franchises with separate men’s and women’s teams, begins at The Oval on July 21 and will feature five India players: T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur, her deputy Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma and explosive opener Shafali Verma.

Birmingham rack up third-highest T20 score as Outlaws come up short

Birmingham 229 for 5 (Pollock 62, Hain 53*) beat Nottinghmshire 211 for 9 (Duckett 51) by 18 runs

Defending champions Notts Outlaws slumped to an 18-run defeat after they were savaged by a brutal Birmingham Bears batting display in the Vitality Blast North Group match at Trent Bridge.

The Bears roared to 229 for 5, their third-highest T20 total, with Sam Hain and Carlos Brathwaite plundering 84 from the last five overs after Ed Pollock set the tone with 62 from 34 balls.

Hain, already averaging 248 in T20 games at Trent Bridge, made an unbeaten 53 off 29 balls after being dropped on 1 while Brathwaite hammered four sixes in 44 from 18 balls.

Ben Duckett‘s 51 from 27 balls gave the Outlaws hope and Tom Moores made 38 from 21 but Brathwaite took 2 for 28 and Jake Lintott 2 for 30 to restrict them to 211 for 9.

Adam Hose set the Bears running by driving Samit Patel over the covers for the first six before pulling Luke Fletcher high over deep midwicket. Fletcher responded by pinning Hose lbw but Pollock slog-swept and drove Dane Paterson for three consecutive fours to lift the Bears to 70 for 1 at the end of the Powerplay.

Pollock pulled Steven Mullaney for six and dispatched Peter Trego for another to reach 50 off 28 balls and take the score to 112 for 1 after 10 overs.

Will Rhodes pulled Calvin Harrison to deep midwicket and Pollock was bowled by Matt Carter but Harrison’s failure to hold a return catch from Hain proved costly as he and Brathwaite thrashed the bowling to all parts. Hain smashed two sixes in a Paterson over that cost 22 before Brathwaite bludgeoned Trego for 31, including four sixes, from the 19th.

Fletcher had him caught at long-on but the Outlaws chances of pulling off a stiff chase suffered a blow when Alex Hales miscued the third ball from Danny Briggs to midwicket.

Joe Clarke was caught behind off a Brathwaite long hop, Trego drilled Tim Bresnan to mid off before Duckett revived the Outlaws by taking 21 from a Bresnan over. But when he top edged a sweep at Lintott, the game slipped away to leave the Outlaws with work to do after taking only one point from the first two games.

Fast bowler says simulating game fitness by playing a Test is much better compared to preparing in the nets

Trent Boult wasn’t expecting to play the ongoing second Test at Edgbaston “initially” but hopes that bowling against England compared to preparing in the nets will put him in “good stead” for the World Test Championship final against India starting June 18 in Southampton.

“Initially I wasn’t expecting to play this game but everything fell into line, and I gave myself that chance to get out there and I think I’ll definitely be better off for that head out,” Boult said after the second day’s play. “It’s one thing loading and getting through numbers in the nets but to simulate that kind of game fitness and having to come back three, four or five times in a day…There’s no real other way to do that. So I’m hoping it puts me in good stead [for the WTC final].

“The toes are a bit sore but that’s what happens when you ram into the shoes for 30 overs. I’m excited about what lies ahead next week in Southampton but equally excited with the opportunity here over the next couple of days.”
