Mix-up fails to spoil Greenway's day
Lydia Greenway was able to reflect on a second consecutive match award despite running out Claire Taylor in England women’s six-wicket win in their first NatWest Quadrangular Series one-day international of the summer.
Greenway finished unbeaten on 51, having shared half-century partnerships with both Taylors - Claire and Sarah - against India at Derby.
Greenway, who was also player of the match in Monday’s Twenty20 final victory over Australia at the Rose Bowl, took responsibility for Claire Taylor’s demise.
“I might owe her a little drink for that. It was completely my fault - sort of said ‘yes’ and then ‘no’ and then ‘sorry’,” she told ecb.co.uk.
“It’s just one of those things; I made a conscious effort to make sure that I was there at the end and have apologised to her now, so hopefully she’s not too angry at me.”
Having limited India to 202 for nine, captain Charlotte Edwards led England’s chase with 51. Once Claire Taylor departed for 10 fewer, Sarah Taylor joined Greenway in an unbroken stand of 68.
Greenway added: “When those sort of things happen you have to make sure that you take the responsibility for the team and I’m pleased that I managed to do that. Sarah coming in at the end there and playing really positively helped.”
