Louth star Arran Brindle described a ‘fantastic’ day after her England side beat Pakistan by 111-runs in Lincolnshire’s first ever women’s one-day international at London Road in Louth on Monday.
Brindle enjoyed a dream return to her home ground, hitting 55 with the bat before taking a key wicket with the ball as England reached 227-7 and won by 111 runs in front of a sell out crowd at the home of Louth Cricket Club.
The day began in spectacular fashion when the match ball was parachuted down onto the pitch from 6,000 feet by the RAF Falcons display team.
The ground was officially sold out, with 1,000 schoolchildren and 1,000 paying fans lining the boundary for the historic clash.
Watch the video to hear Arran’s thoughts on her return to her club ground.
