England Women’s captain Charlotte Edwards believes that her team is getting better and better as the Women's World 20Twenty tournament is getting into its business end following England’s 79-run win over Bangladesh which was their second straight victory.
“I think we are getting better with each game, which is a nice place to be in tournament cricket,” she said.
“I've played a lot of World Cups and it's about peaking at the right time and I'm confident we are getting better.
“Our bowling and fielding has been outstanding throughout the competition.”
She can’t afford to take the Sri Lanka lightly in their next clash as the very team defeated them in their previous clash in an ICC tournament. But, for the moment, Captain Edwards is “Happy”,
“I'm really pleased with the win today," added Edwards as she reviewed victory over Bangladesh.
“Certainly, after the first seven overs, to post that kind of score and then to be as ruthless as we were with the ball is really pleasing going into a very important match on Sunday.
“We capitalised at the back end of the innings. Sciver played brilliantly with me there to get a good 50-run partnership and that's something we've needed in our games before now.
“There are some pleasing things to come out of today and, moving forward to Sunday, we are in a great place.”
It is almost certain now that the British would be making it to the knockout stages of the tournament just like they did the last time, though, unfortunately, they lost to Australia (Southern Stars) in the final. However, the kind of form that the ladies can make English fans feel optimistic about England’s chances.
