The final match of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 is over and the women in blue were defeated by England.
A late collapse, sparked by five wickets in 19 balls from Anya Shrubsole, saw England snatch victory away from the Indian team.
To take you down memory lane, Lord’s is the same cricket ground where Kapil Dev lifted the Cricket World Cup in 1983. And everyone was hoping that Indian women will repeat the feat today.
Here is what Bollywood had to say about the defeat:
