- Tammy Beaumont didn't have a great Ashes, by her own admission; but she played a punchy little innings for Kent in the domestic T20 final and she's brought that form with her to the West Indies. She was probably going to Australia whatever, but she is definitely fighting for a place on the team-sheet and if she keeps this up, she'll be in that XI!
- Nat Sciver's first over looks worse on the scorecard than it actually was - the two opening wides were both of the "One Day" variety, just down the leg side. She then took the crucial wicket of Bates, albeit with a shocking full toss that should have been called a No Ball; and bowled a tight final over.
- Lottie made a good 40, but it should have been more - the runs were there, but her legs are clearly made of two lollypop sticks held together with double-sided sticky-tape these days. How she's going to cope with playing 8 matches in 3 weeks, I'm not sure?
- Taylor didn't have a great game, either side of the stumps; but I guess if she is going to have one of her spells of poor form, now is probably a good time to get it out of the way!
