Women's Ashes 2nd ODI

Random thoughts on the 2nd ODI at Hove Home via 5-Live:
  • Yay!
  • Woo-hoo!
  • Woop-woop!
  • Listening-in on 5-Live, Ali-Mit is much missed. Iain O'Brien isn't a bad broadcaster, but he basically admitted that he doesn't know a thing about women's cricket. (He gets bonus points for being frank and not bluffing, I guess; but I'd rather have a commentator that actually knows the player's names, and doesn't keep referring to "batswomen"... which is what my ten-year-old son would call a "noob fail"!)
  • Playing Silver Sciver was a gamble. It paid off; but it was a gamble nonetheless, because Sciver is more of a bisher-bosher, in contrast to a "proper" batsman like Loz Winfield. If England had lost Brindle or Greenway earlier, Sciver would have been horribly exposed I suspect. (It might have made more sense if Sciver had bowled, but she didn't... so it didn't!)
