LB fair observations hopefully Kent have now established a youth section that will flourish and reduce the reliance on Lottie and Lydia in seasons to come.In the meantime we have a seriously competitive structure behind the national team.The future is bright indeed.

It would seem so.Alice Macleod (16 year old) scored 61 for Berkshire in the T20 final.
Berkshire (County) & Reading (club) appear to have had a successful season.The pool of talent is growing and hopefully others will follow.http://www.womenscricket.net/

A stimulating read, you two. Many thanks. I did manage to keep up with Sussex winning the Championship and Berkshire winning the T20. (Congratulations to Macleod - and incidentally to Claire Taylor who batted Berks into the final.)Now, I guess, it's all eyes on Sri Lanka and on the three newcomers in particular. Youngsters will come through and that it all to the good: not only does it add fresh blood and vigour, but also keeps the "golden oldies" on their toes. One day, we're going to have to replace, Edwards, Greenwood, Brunt, Marsh et al, even as an England team of the past without Clare Connor was unthinkable at the time.

Firstly some interesting posts on the ECB from the Skipper.http://www.ecb.co.uk/news/womens/england-women-and-international/edwards,312169,EN.htmlhttp://www.ecb.co.uk/news/womens/england-women-and-international/edwards,312171,EN.htmlA question: Should we start a new winter thread...

Yes I think a new winter thread is a good idea. The tournement in SA for the 5th to 10th ranked teams starts tomorrow so perhaps that will generate reason for comment - especially if Dottin explodes.

A new thread is an excellent idea. 'Bout time, I'd say. However, as it's likely to disappear off the face of 606 in no time, I'd be grateful if notice of it were posted here.As for Dottin - 59 the other day, but the one to continue to watch out for, I feel, is Stafanie Taylor.

The ICC tourny is starting to look a bit like a SA v WI show - and they play each other tomorrow.Stafanie Taylor has a remarkable record. Youngest person to reach 1000 ODI runs and an ODI average of 40+. Granted that not many of her matches were against A/I/N/E (only 8 of her 29 ODIs have been against A/I/N/E) but it still impressive and certainly sets her out as the best batter outside A/I/N/E.Dottin has been the 2nd best batter but she comes at No6 which limits here chances. I think she'll open in the T20 tourny so perhaps some fireworks then.

I see the South Africans took it, which surprised me somewhat. Dottin went for a duck and with Taylor confined to 20, there wasn't much left for Windies. Well! The more evenly spread the victories the better it is for the overall strength of women's cricket, I'd say.
