Series against India will help shaping team for T20 world cup, says Australian women’s team coach
The series against India will have a huge impact on how the Australian women’s cricket team will lead into the T20 world cup, said the Australian women’s cricket team coach Matthew Mott on Sunday (March 11) addressing a news conference in India’s western city of Vadodara.
Indian and Australian cricket teams were seen sweating it out in the heat ahead of the three match ODI series beginning Monday (March 12). The Australian team will see the return of skipper Meg Lanning, after a seven-month injury lay off due to a shoulder problem.
Calling Australian cricket team captain Meg Lanning along with Ellyse Perry and Elyse Villani as strong players, Indian cricket team vice captain, Harmanpreet Kaur said that execution of the plans will be the key to emerging victorious in the series.
On the other hand, Australian team players are keen on learning from past mistakes and attack the host team with robust wicket bowlers.
Hosts India, high on confidence after a historic dual series wins against South Africa, will meet Australia for the first game of the three-match ODI series in western Vadodara city on Monday (March 12). The ODI series will be followed by T20 series.
