Ireland Women's Cricket team are playing New Zealand women in 3 ODIs

Seems just because Ireland's men's team have been upped in status the ICC have similarly upped the women's status too.

While giving a one off game to help "develop" the game or as a warm up 3 games is a nonsense. This is a complete mismatch.

If NZ bat like they should it would be amazing if they don't score 400 today. Closer to 500 possibly.

Similar thing in that WT20I tournament in Asia really, putting in teams like Malaysia who play out 100 dot balls in T20 Scared

I've always questioned why women need shorter boundaries. It's a bit of a lazy assumption inherited from golf.  With today's bats there's no reason why a well timed shot shouldn't clear the men's boundaries (indeed Tammy Beaumont was doing just that in a bit with rob key last year), while gifted 11 year old boys with a stick of rhubarb can time a ball for 4 along the ground. It will also improve the standard by forcing the women batters to time the ball rather bottom hand shovelling it 45 metres

mandhana's a really good example of a woman who can time a ball properly along the ground. lots of great back foot drives.

I'm green though, thats the main thing.   Some decent opportunities arise with the lasses, garbage though the product is.

Agree about the boundaries. If they get lower scores, so what. It is the same for both teams. The men's boundaries have come in 5 yards as well. Why?

Looks like I will be back trading the lasses tomorrow as I don't think Scottishers v Pakistan T20 is broadcast anywhere.
