Australian Captain Meg Lanning before the start of this series, “We’ve spoken about it as a team, about dominating world cricket and putting a gap between opposition teams,” said Lanning.
“That is not an easy thing to do, because there is some world-class teams out there, but we feel like we’ve got the chance to do that,” she added.
“It was one of my slower hundreds, but that’s what the conditions required, and to be able to bat with Midge [Healy], who was going along a bit quicker, took the pressure off a bit,” she said. “It never felt like you were in, but Midge and I spoke about working through the tough periods.
“I was able to absorb some pressure and then attack when I needed to, so it was a pleasing effort in some hot conditions. I was certainly struggling towards the back end there.”
“It was a bit of luck, more than anything,” she said. “But it was nice that it stuck. It’s nice to be able to dive and not have to worry about the landing. My shoulder is good and has been for a while now, so it’s nice to be able to act on instinct.”
