All that we've done in the last 18 months was to deal with situations where the heat was on. The way we performed previous year, be it Asia Cup, home series or quadrangular, we knew we would do well.
Recalling that childhood visit to Lord's, Shrubsole told BBC Radio Five Live: "I remember the day, I remember watching him in that game - I don't remember saying that but I guess it just shows that dreams can come true".
Overall, global viewership was 80 percent higher than the figures from 2013. Following the good show in the World Cup, former chief selector of junior Indian cricket team and vice-president of Hyderabad District Badminton Association, Chamundeswaranath will be presenting a BMW auto to the cricketer.
"Great feeling. It's been the best achievement".
Like Pakistani cricketer Waqar Younis who thought the fact that the Women's World Cup was going on, presented the flawless opportunity to suggest some ideas that he was promptly rapped on the knuckles for.
"It's only once it ends that you kind of go, "I just won a World Cup final", and it took me quite a long time after to realise the magnitude of what you've achieved, I was in a complete state of shock".
The Indian team got a rousing reception upon their arrival at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport on Wednesday following their memorable campaign in the prestigious 50-over tournament in England. "Luckily, it went well, but we'd love to do it more often".
"Mithali (Raj) has been performing amazingly for many years; she is an incredible ambassador for the game of cricket", Mirza said, lauding the skipper of the Indian Women's team.
"It is just the beginning of good times for women's cricket", Mithali said. And the reception that we received today was just unbelievable. So this time feels good. "In England, the wickets are different and ball swings, and then rains", she said. They have flawless role models in Mithalis, Jhulan Goswamis, Harmanpreet Kaurs, Smriti Mandhanas and many more. So this is a lesson.
As Raj said these comments hurt her sentiments as it was heartbreaking for her to get out in this fashion in probably her last World Cup. I barely get to watch sports these days - or much of anything for that matter - but I was really glad I was able to see this. "The way our team has played, we deserved it", she added. Before I reached the half way, this thing (spike getting stuck) happened and I don't think the TV cameras captured it.
The ICC revealed that the global TV audience for group matches exceeded 50m - 80 per cent higher than the last World Cup four years ago, with the United Kingdom viewing figures 51 per cent up on 2013.
