Eighteen days on from England lifting the World Cup at a sold-out Lord’s, women’s cricket will be back in spotlight.

A crowd of 26,000 packed into the ground for England’s dramatic final win over India. More than 1.1 million in the UK tuned in to watch on television – more than the average for a Premier League football match.
