Melbourne: Australia women’s team captain Meg Lanning hopes that 2021 Cricket World Cup goes on as per schedule.
Speaking to reporters via teleconference, Lanning said that she and her team are ready for next year’s World Cup.
“We’re well prepared, we’ve got enough resources to get done what we need to and then adjust to what our schedule gives us,” she said.
The skipper said that currently, following the current COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown situation, all players are making sure to be in touch with fitness. She further said that they are planning state programmes to engage players positively.
“We’re going to fully immerse ourselves in the state programme over the next few months, there are no Australian camps in Brisbane because we can’t get there. But here in Victoria, we’ve got great facilities, we’re looking forward to being involved in the state programme which is something we’ve not been able to do for a number of years given our schedule,” she maintained.
It must be noted here that Lanning captained Australia to ICC T20 World Cup triumph at home earlier this year in March.
