Meg Lanning: I’m back playing some cricket, which is nice, really enjoying it

Women Big Bash League

The star skipper of the Australian women’s cricket team, Meg Lanning, is hopeful of her comeback in the game. However, she hasn’t yet commented on her test series tour of India.


The national captain of Australia, Meg Lanning, recently talked about her comeback to the game while battling her health issues. The 31-year-old cricketer had previously missed the Ashes series in England. Her health is the primary reason for her absence from the game.

However, Meg Lanning is currently focusing on preparations for the Melbourne Stars’ WBBL season. While the Australian women’s team is gearing up for the pink ball test series in India, Meg Lanning’s position in the team is uncertain. Moreover, she didn’t provide any information about the recent breaks from cricket in the past two years. After making her first media appearance in over six months, Meg Lanning said,

“I haven’t thought that far ahead (about India). I’m back playing some cricket, which is nice. I’m really enjoying it, and I still feel like I have a little bit more to give, but what exactly that looks like, I’m not sure.”

Meg Lanning further added,

“I didn’t bat for a fairly long time, Probably I needed a little bit heading into the WNCL. But I have played a lot of cricket over the years so I do feel like the skillset’s there. It’s just about getting into a confident position and feeling good in my mind that I can go out there and play. I feel like I’m in that position now”


There were reports that the Australian women’s team was bracing themselves for the day-night pink ball test. The test between India and Australia will be in December 2023. The test will be hosted at Mumbai’s renowned Wankhede Stadium. Moreover, the women’s test in India is coming back after ten years in the home ground.
