“The group we’ve got, we’ve played a lot of cricket together over a long period of time and if it (the coronavirus) means we’ve only got a short time to prepare and get ready (for the World Cup), I’ve got no doubt we’ll be able to do that. We’ll be ready to go,” Lanning said during a discussion with cricket.com.au.

We’ll be ready even if get short time

Meg Lanning, the world cup winning captain, hoped the world cup plan will go ahead according to the original schedule while maintaining that thing can change pretty quickly and everyone will have to be prepared for that.

“At this stage, we anticipate the World Cup to go ahead as scheduled (early next year) but have to wait and see how that plays out. We’ve got a plan in place for what it looks like but also fully understanding things can change pretty quick,”

Lanning said

She also added that the women’s cricket will continue to get love from cricket fans as they got during the T20 World Cup final against India earlier this year when the iconic MCG was packed with a huge attendance of 86,000 spectators.

Nice to get back to training

Talking further the batswoman accepted that she hasn’t hit a cricket ball for over eight weeks during the coronavirus imposed lockdown.

“I haven’t hit a cricket ball in eight weeks. It’s been a while, and I was looking forward to that break after the World Cup. I’ve been exercising a fair bit to keep me sane but it’s nice to get back into training now.

Meg Lanning also added that the break was not that bad considering the timing and she enjoyed the break after playing a loaded and showpiece tournament.
