What's clicked: Following an average showing in Ashes, England head coach Mark Robinson decided to step down, while key players like Sarah Taylor, Laura Marsh and Jenny Gunn also announced their retirements. England meanwhile, brought in young players like legbreak bowler Sarah Glenn, pacer Freya Davies and offspinner Mady Villiers, who have come up with impressive performances to earn spots in the squad for upcoming the multi-team event.

To that effect, Australia have also included 18-year-old sensation Annabel Sutherland in their squad. … [Read more...] about WT20 World Cup Group A: Will NZ disrupt the India-Australia hegemony?
