England’s top wicket-taker Anya Shrubsole said “I’m lost for words. For a while it looked like we were out of it, but that’s the beauty of this team. We never give up. It’s been a fitting final for what has been a brilliant World Cup. It’s a final, there’s huge amount of pressure. We never let the run rate get away of us. I didn’t even imagine I’d be here, it’s a dream you never think comes true. To come back to a venue where I first came in 2001, as a World Cup winner is amazing.”
