Staffordshire local Danni Wyatt and her England Women’s cricket team are through to the ICC World T20 final after beating India by eight wickets in a dominant performance.

The batsman has spoke about the magnificent support the side have received during the tournament.
“I think I heard it was a record crowd (against West Indies) for women’s cricket in the West Indies and that’s really cool, ” said Wyatt.
“We had a family night out here in St Lucia and it was a lot of fun. Everyone came together on the beach and we had a bit of food.
“It’s really lovely to have everyone out here and it’s so nice for them. They’ve all supported us so much so it’s only fair they get to come and watch us in lovely places like St Lucia.”
She also spoke about how her dad has got into the cricket spirit supporting his daughter and her side.
“Dad’s been looking after everyone with their England t-shirts, and they even got on Sky! I loved it. He’s gonna be more famous than me!”
