It was the women's twenty-20 world cup cricket match played between Australia and England in London last week which was won by England. The commentator ran into some difficulties however:
Batsman has become a Batter(we rarely hear of battered husbands).
When one girl scored a "four" commentator said there was no third man to stop the boundary though the only two men in the ground were standing near the wickets. When one girl was bowled our poor commentator said "bowled him".
There will be more I suppose. Good luck to future commentators and the best of luck to women's cricket!
