“Thanks to the staff, the way they have been backing us everyday and telling us that we are here for the cup and because of them we are here. All thanks to them. The players have been backing me a lot. Thanks to BCCI for giving me this beautiful team and really happy for winning the cup. She (Shweta Sehrawat) has been excellent and has followed all the plans from the staff. Not just her, Archana, Soumya and I can’t really take the names but they all have been incredible. No, definitely not (when asked if this is the only tournament she’s gonna pick up this season in South Africa)” said an emotional Indian skipper in the post-match interaction.

England skipper Grace Scrivens was awarded the Player Of The Series award as she scored 297 runs in 7 matches in this World Cup averaging 41.86.
