Australia’s T20 World Cup winning captain aims to pursue sports management


Melbourne: Meg Lanning, who led Australia to ICC Women’s T20 World Cup title earlier this month, plans to go to sports management or coaching side after taking retirement from international cricket.

Speaking to, Lanning said that she can’t sit free at home during some break from cricket.

“I struggle doing nothing. In this free time, I will be completing my Level-3 coaching course and locking a university course in business or sports management next week. Once I’ve done that, it will settle me down a bit once I’ve got something to focus on,” the 28-years-old cricketer said.

“I love to get outdoors and be active and spend time doing that, so I’ve had to adjust that. I’ve got a home gym set-up that I feel will keep me going. I’ll certainly go stir crazy if I can’t do any exercise,” she added.

It must be noted here that Lanning-led Australia won ICC Women’s T20 World Cup title in Melbourne on March 8 [Women’s Day].
