On Sunday 9th of July my family and I went to Bristol to watch England v Australia in the Women’s World Cup cricket match. It was a very hot and sunny day so we put on lots of sun cream and had lots to drink.

England batted first but lost some wickets early on. Tammy Beaumont scored 49 runs but then was out before she got to 50. Katherine Brunt hit some really good shots and scored 45 not out. England batted well later on and hit 18 fours and 6 sixes in their 50 overs. One six nearly landed on my brother while he was queuing for an ice cream!

During the day, there was a special bowling game where you could see how fast you could bowl the cricket ball. Oliver and I had lots of turns as it was really good fun but it was tiring as it was really hot!

The World Cup was on display and you could have your photo taken by it but you were not allowed to touch it.

After England had batted the teams had some lunch and so did we. Then it was Australia’s turn to bat. England scored 259 runs for 8 wickets in their 50 overs, so Australia needed 260 to win. They had to score 5.2 runs per over. Australia started well and Elise Perry, one of their best players, scored 70 runs and hit 2 very big sixes, one bounced next to us when we were lining up at the bowling game.England took some wickets and it was a game changer. It got really close near the end and Australia needed a six off the last ball to win. Jonassen hit the ball very high in the air and we didn’t know if it was going to fly over the boundary. But luckily it landed safely on the right side of the rope and they only got 2 runs. England won by 3 runs and we all cheered really loudly!

After the match, the players signed autographs for us and I got lots of England ones and some Australia as well.

A couple of weeks later England beat India in the final to become WORLD CUP WINNERS!!!!
