Australia will take a cautious approach over the fitness conditions of both Ellyse Perry and Tayla Vlaeminck.
The Australian side is starting to plan for their line-up for next year’s 50-over World Cup amid COVID-19. With that, Australian player Meg Lanning confirmed how Australia will not rush back players Ellyse Perry and Tayla Vlaeminck because of their injuries.
Perry may be recalled to have missed out the finals of the T20 World Cup because of a hamstring injury. This happened earlier this year during a group-stage match against New Zealand. Vlaeminck, on the other hand, also missed out the same tournament after being diagnosed with a stress fracture in her right foot on the eve of the event.
As per Lanning, ‘I believe they are both tracking along nicely, we haven't seen them much but the reports I've had is that it's all going pretty well. They are reasonably serious injuries they are coming back from so it's a long process’.
‘We want to have them back as soon as we can but the real No. 1 at the moment is the World Cup next year and that's the focus. If they are ready to go in September against New Zealand they'll play but not sure on the time frame’, she added.
After the lockdown, Australia women’s will first compete with New Zealand in November on a three-match series of T20Is. To further understand T20Is, check out Betwala.
