Women’s Ashes: Australia captain Meg Lanning says ‘Coming here to win’;

Women’s Ashes: The Women’s Ashes against England will not be easy believes Australia captain Meg Lanning, but her team is hopeful about winning the series.

The first T20I of the Women’s Ashes was won by Australia, while the rest were washed out owing to rain. The Test match between the two teams will take place on Thursday.

“We’re coming here to win. There’s no doubt about that. That’s all we’ve spoken about over the past few days is coming here and how can we best set up a victory. England are coming to do the same thing,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Lanning as saying.

“So it’s certainly not going to be easy, and we’re going to have to sort of grind it out through certain periods of the game, but that’s the way we’re approaching it,” she added.

On the other hand, England skipper Heather Knight feels that the team which bowls first, always gets an uper hand in the game.

“There’s a line of thought that if you bowl first you can dictate the game a little bit more, you still have to take 20 wickets but hopefully you have a chase at the end,” said Knight.

Following the Test match, Australia and England will play an ODI series that will begin on February 3 and conclude on February 8.
