World Twenty20 was 'great advert' for women's game

England's Charlotte Edwards and Laura Marsh believe the recent Twenty20 World Cup has been "a great advert" for the women's game, despite losing to Australia in the final.

England failed in their bid to win a second World Twenty20 title, losing by four runs to the defending champions in the final in Colombo on Sunday.

Marsh admits it was "a real shame" not to win the tournament, but captain Edwards says there were lots of positives to take from the defeat.
