Source Icon Guardian
The Southern Stars captain on winning the World Twenty20, losing the Ashes and how to build the women's gameMeg Lannings contribution to the Womens World T20 final earlier this month told us just about all we needed to know about the Southern Stars tenacious skipper. As England batted, she was quick-witted with body and brain, leading by example in the field and rotating her stingy bowlers with a shrewdness that strangled Englands celebrated but six-less batting to a subpar total.

I was desperate to see the girls home but I forgot about getting out as soon as I looked at that scoreboard. That cheered me up. Its been a crazy few days and I dont think Ive stopped talking about it since but Ill never tire of reminiscing on what was an extraordinary experience. A third consecutive title was a huge achievement and it feels pretty good right now. Continue reading...

Indeed, when Rory Hamilton-Brown milked Chris Woakes for three boundaries in an over it appeared the option of asking for the extra half-hour was a possibility. Continue reading...
