The way all the girls are performing and backing each other, so happy. Incredible feeling. Thanks to the staff, the way they have been backing us everyday and telling us that we are here for the cup and because of them we are here. All thanks to them. The players have been backing me a lot. Thanks to BCCI for giving me this beautiful team and really happy for winning the cup. She (Shweta Sehrawat) has been excellent and has followed all the plans from the staff. Not just her, Archana, Soumya and I can't really take the names but they all have been incredible. No, definitely not (when asked if this is the only tournament she's gonna pick up this season in South Africa). India skipper | Shafali Verma
Quite pleased. I never really played abroad, amazing experience and heat is something I had to deal with. Had to adapt to different conditions. We train a lot in the nets and try and put that practice in the middle. We were gutted, our batting let us down. We were so good throughout the tournament going hard at the bowlers, we tried that today but didn't quite come off. All these girls are unbelievable and I absolutely loved captaining them. They (England senior team) made the trip here, awesome and really unbelievable. Really pleased with the support from the fans. England skipper and Player of the Tournament | Grace Scrivens
