ICC Women's World Cup 2017: Meet the Cricketeers, the unsung heroes of mega cricket events in England
The Cricketeers were everyday people, with everyday problems, coming together for a higher purpose during events such as the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 and the Champions Trophy 2017.
Indian women cricket team's star pacer Jhulan Goswami on Saturday said the nine run loss against England in the ICC World Cup final would continue to haunt the side.
"Playing at the Lord's is a dream for any cricketer. When I first visited the venue in 2001, I went there as a tourist, and I had collected a bit of grass from the outfield," Goswami said.

We analyse the Mithali Raj-led squad that made it all the way to the summit clash of the tournament, categorising them on the basis of their chances for the next World Cup.
BCCI is of the view that to maintain a supply chain for the national squad more work needs to be done at the ground level, instead of developing an IPL clone.
India have all been inspired by these girls, who were on track to be world champions for the majority of the summit clash against the hosts. All they now need is a glitzy tournament like the IPL to shoot them in the galaxy of the Mithalis, Ellyse Perrys and Sarah Taylors. So that come New Zealand 2021, India is better prepared to lift the Cup.
Sarah Taylor, England cricket's heroine had managed to cross the gushing waters to emerge victorious, something England's male cricketers suffering severe depression had failed to do in the past
IPL could be the answer to make the women cricketers more secure financially, to take the game to the public and a lot more. But it isn’t the answer to the team’s ability to handle pressure.
