- For a whole variety of reasons, this morning felt like a bit of an anticlimax: the early start, combined with the dead-rubber series situation, produced a bit of a forgettable game of cricket, which didn't live up to the series as a whole.
- Foundations are really important - you don't notice them, but try constructing anything much without them! Katherine Brunt hasn't done anything spectacular in this series; but she has been the foundation of England's success and arguably the only player on either team to have "turned-up" to every game.
- Heather Knight's injury is a huge blow to Berkshire, who she was due to captain in the up-coming domestic T20 Finals Day. Berkshire have been a bit of a one-woman team this season, and without her I'd say their chances are now pretty close to zero. (But D and I will still be there next Saturday at Preston Nomads to cheer on The Beavers!)
