Mumbai: The head of ICC's Women's Committee Clare Connor gave a huge thumbs up for the Women's World Cup that concluded in Mumbai on Sunday and said the tournament is a huge success and has raised the profile of the women's game.

"It has been a huge achievement, a huge success in raising profile, in terms of the number of people who have tuned in, in countries where it has been televised," the former England women's cricket captain said on Sunday.

While conceding that the early exit of hosts India "meant that some of the profile got lost a little bit," Connor, who is heading England and Wales Cricket Board's women's panel, praised the quality of play in the tournament.
