Women’s ODI World Cup: It’s a win against an extraordinary team who are too dangerous – Meg Lanning after beating India

Australia captain Meg Lanning said on Saturday that her group is very excited about reaching the semi-finals of the ongoing ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup. He said that winning from different positions in the league stage of the World Cup is serving as his full preparation for the semi-finals.

Lanning chased down a successful target of 278 against India at Eden Park. Although Lanning fell for 97, she worked, helping Australia to the most successful chase in the history of the Women’s Cricket World Cup and becoming the first team to qualify for the semi-finals. The six-wicket win also meant that Australia maintained their pole position on the points table with five out of five wins.

“I think as a group, we’re really excited. It’s very difficult to play in a World Cup, we’ve seen a lot of ups and downs already throughout this tournament, so every game is a challenge. It’s every game. The game is unique and you need to make sure you are adapting. We win differently every time which I think is really important because you have to make sure you position yourself differently. I have to keep in mind that when you get to the semi-finals, you’re ready and ready to go,” Lanning said in a post-match virtual press conference.

Lanning said his team would enjoy the victories against India to the fullest before focusing on their last two matches against South Africa and Bangladesh. “We will enjoy this win, it is a win against an extraordinary team that is very dangerous. You need to make sure that you take some time to get it done and thus enjoy the win because they are all very tough We’ll focus again when we need to, but it’s definitely a very pleasant changing room tonight.”

Lanning missed her 15th ODI century when she fell for 97. Admitting his grief for not reaching the century, he expressed his full faith in Tahlia McGrath and Beth Mooney, which they did with three. To release the balls.

“We were pretty confident to be honest. We had Moons who was set and Tahlia McGrath, she’s very calm under pressure. We hope to get runs on a really good batting wicket.”

“It was disappointing for me to get out, I would have liked to be there just to finish the game and not put a little bit of unnecessary pressure on Tahlia and Moons. Overall it was a very clinical chase, I thought (Alyssa) Healy and (Rachel) Haynes set it up well at the top, took us through the rate and it allowed the new batsmen to settle themselves and build partnerships.”
