It is the women who know how to enthral. After two riveting World Cup semi‑finals http://www.officialphiladelphiaflyers.com/Adidas-Brian-Propp-Jersey elsewhere here was a final that had a capacity crowd nervously glued to their seats one moment, then leaping out of them in delight yet still never knowing which side would prevail until the final ball was bowled. Somehow the men’s games this summer have been disappointingly one-sided by comparison.This was not the decorous Lord’s of seasons past. The fans were chanting and gasping at every twist and turn. In the final overs each ball provoked raucous cheers from one set of fans or the other. Brilliant run-outs, scrambled singles, desperate dropped catches and then at the end – just as in the semi-final at Bristol – Anya Shrubsole was engulfed by team‑mates, exhausted not so much by the demands of the game but by the tension of a magnificent final. One-day cricket is a wonderful game when the outcome seems all-important.England beat Doug Gilmour Authentic Jersey India in thrilling final to win Women’s Cricket World Cup At Bristol against South Africa Shrubsole faced one ball and hit it for four just when England appeared to be making a mess of a straightforward run chase – except that there is no such thing in a semi-final. Here England were struggling in the field with India bang on target. In their 42nd over they were 191 for three, needing only 38 more for victory.Then the ball was tossed to Shrubsole of Somerset, known as the quickest bowler born in the north of the county – especially when Peter Trego is in earshot – and somehow she tinkered with fate. The dismissal of Poonam Raut, who had batted with such polish and poise for her 86, prompted the first signs of panic among the chasers.Then there was a certain magic about every Shrubsole delivery, partly because just about all of them had that special quality; they were straight. She yorked the vastly experienced http://www.officialtorontomapleleafs.com/Adidas-Doug-Gilmour-Jersey Jhulan Goswami first ball but perhaps her best delivery was her last. Her opponent was not the most formidable – Rajeshwar Gayakwad is not the best of batters. But consider the previous delivery: a gentle catch to mid-off from the bat of Poonam Yadav would surely seal it for England but Jenny Gunn, renowned for her reliability, dropped it.On the tee Spieth had his head in his hands on account of a horribly cut drive which landed in deep foliage. This was hardly an isolated incident; Spieth had long since conceded the three-shot lead he enjoyed at the start of day four. His play was erratic, his demeanour edgy, his hitherto nerveless putting a weakness. Was Spieth, the man tortured by such a horrible collapse at Augusta National last year, about to do it again?It took 20 minutes for Spieth to play what was his third shot to 13. In seeking the best possible distance and lie to find the green, he walked back some 50 yards and on to the range. Equipment trucks and flags there Danny Woodhead Womens Jersey provided an added complication to an already extraordinary sight. Spieth used a rule to his advantage rather than breach any; the great Seve, and Tiger Woods, had plenty of previous for precisely the same.Spieth escaped with a bogey five, handing Kuchar a one-stroke lead, but the theatre had really only started. The new champion came close to an ace at the 14th, holed out for an http://www.baltimoreravensauthorizedstore.com/danny-woodhead-jersey-elite eagle on the 15th from 48ft and converted from only just inside that distance on 16. Spieth had bounced from the ropes to inflict a knockout blow on Kuchar. Even at the penultimate hole Kuchar’s birdie was immediately offset by the same from Spieth. What had looked the professional breaking of Spieth was the making of him in the blink of an eye.Jordan Spieth wins the Open 2017: final round, as it happened Jordan Spieth won the Open at Birkdale – his third major title – after a heroic performance along the closing stretch. Scott Murray was watching Spieth and Kuchar ultimately traded 69s, the former’s 12-under aggregate testimony to generally favourable Open conditions. The winning margin was three. Kuchar, one of the most genial individuals in golf, appeared pleased for Spieth when lesser mortals would be of a mind to attack him with a four-iron. If there is a golfing god, Kuchar’s time will come.One of many exceptional aspects of Spieth’s driving-range foray was that Li Haotong was, at the same time, back in the same place preparing for a potential play-off. The Chinese player had recorded a wonderful 63 to move to six under par, a tally that had serious championship potential as Spieth toiled and Kuchar failed to take proper advantage. Li’s third-place finish earns him an invite to next year’s Masters as his star continues to rise.Rory McIlroy did not seem like he knew what to make of a share of fourth. The Northern Irishman started this event so poorly that recovery to the point of prominence was a great effort, even more so when recent struggles are brought into the equation. Nonetheless, McIlroy actually had a decent chance of winning here. He should, and will, take confidence towards Quail Hollow and the US PGA.McIlroy’s fourth-round 67 meant he sat alongside Rafa Cabrera Bello at five under. The top 10 was completed by the minus four group of Matthew Southgate, Marc Leishman, Alex Noren, Branden Grace and Brooks Koepka.Ian Poulter signed off with a 70, meaning a tie for 14th. The Englishman did not mince his words thereafter. “I’ve had a lousy weekend,” he said. “Nothing to be happy about or proud about. I’m walking away from this tournament feeling extremely disappointed, from a great start.” Alfie Plant will look back on Birkdale with considerably more endearing memories, the likeable amateur making a final-round 73 before taking collection of the silver medal.“He’s a fighter, he’s shown that the whole way through his short career,” McIlroy said of Spieth. Add that description to the list. This sport is so lucky to have him.
