A colossal year for women’s cricket begins on January 31 when the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup gets underway, exclusively live on Sky Sports.

Sky Sports will show live games throughout the competition as Charlotte Edwards’ team, currently the highest ranked nation in women’s one-day cricket, aim to defend the title they won in Sydney four years ago.

There will also be live commentary of every England match, plus the final in Mumbai February 17, on BBC Radio 5 live Sports Extra and Radio 4 Long Wave.

Cricket’s top eight women’s sides from across the globe will battle it out to be crowned Women’s World Cup champion across five venues in the Indian city of Mumbai.

The competition bowls on to screens on Thursday morning when tournament hosts India take on the West Indies.

Twenty-four hours later, New Zealand face South Africa before world champions England meet Sri Lanka at the crease.

The reigning champions are in Group A alongside Sri Lanka, West Indies and hosts India.

England’s women were beaten by Australia in the final of the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 back in October 2012.

The Aussies became the first side in both the men’s and women’s game to retain the T20 title.

Edwards will hope her team can follow in their footsteps and be the first to successfully defend the World Cup in 24 years.

She will hope to inspire her side to replicate the dominant displays they produced throughout the 2009 competition.

As well as making a vital contribution herself, Edwards drew the best out of opening batsman Claire Taylor, who hit more runs than any other player in the competition, including a phenomenal 101-run stand against their opponents for this week.

Laura Marsh was unrelenting with ball, topping the wickets standings and recording career-best figures of 5/15 in their clash with Pakistan.

While Taylor has since retired, Edwards will see Marsh as one of key weapons among her arsenal.

Being not only the world champions but also the world’s top women’s ODI side will heap enormous pressure on England.

Can they deliver the goods in India once again this month?
