Arran Brindle's England prepare for Women's Cricket World Cup third-place play-off
ARRAN Brindle’s England must put their Women’s Cricket World Cup despair behind them – and be prepared for tomorrow’s third-place play-off.
That’s the message from captain Charlotte Edwards after her team’s chances of making Sunday’s final evaporated in Mumbai.
Louth all-rounder Brindle helped England to an impressive win in their final Super Sixes game against New Zealand yesterday.
But the damage had already been done earlier in the day, with the West Indies springing a surprise victory over Australia to join their opponents in the final.

That sent the reigning 50-over world champions crashing out, despite their 15-run triumph over the White Ferns.
Brindle, pictured, and co will face the Kiwis again tomorrow in the battle for third and fourth, though.
And Edwards believes it is a chance to put things right.
“It’s our own fault,” she said.
“Inconsistency at the front of the tournament has cost us and we’re playing our best cricket now.
“It’s always a good contest between us and the Kiwis, so we’ll come back tomorrow – there’s third place to play for and we’ll all be looking for that.”
