A quick blog to say congratulations to Charlotte Edwards, the England captain, who this week became the all-time leading run-scorer in one-day international cricket.

She hit 109 in her team's win in the World Cup against tournament hosts India to add to the tally she had already accrued over her international career (which has so far lasted for 16 years).

If you fancy following the competition, which is turning out to be a closely-contested thing, there's coverage on BBC Radio Five Live and Sky Sports.
