England women’s national cricket team sensationally lost to New Zealand
The England national team was the main favorite of this Commonwealth Games draw, but the team from Foggy Albion completely failed the tournament. In the semi-finals, England sensationally lost to the India national team, and on the eve, the “three lions team” made another failure — England women’s national cricket team sensationally lost to New Zealand.
Thus, the New Zealand national team earned bronze at the Women’s Commonwealth Games. In the match for third place, the New Zealand team unexpectedly beat England with a handicap of 8 wickets.
Recall that England and New Zealand have already met within the framework of this tournament. In the group stage, the England national team defeated its opponent without any problems with a handicap of 7 wickets. But, apparently, the failure at the semi-final stage hit the mood of England hard: in the match for third place, the English team did not look motivated.
It should be noted that there was no sensation in the final: the Australia women’s national team defeated the India national team without any problems in the match for gold.
