Cricket is not easy, doesn’t matter how good your team is! That is a fine way to look at things but in reality, when a team has 8 to 9 match winners in a single team, things become easy for them. They have been dominant for years because there is always someone who stands up and does well for the team with remarkable consistency.
Having players like Beth Mooney at the top is a blessing for the Australian team. She has the blueprint for providing key starts to their batting order and she does it successfully more often than not. There is Alyssa Healy, being a wicket keeper, she opens for the team. How many teams have an wicket keeper who can open the innings for them.
That tells us about the depth that have in the team. For Australia, the key to success has been all rounders who have done pleasantly well with bat and ball. Ashleigh Gardner is prime example of that, she is one of the best ball strikes in women’s cricket right now and she also has the ability to pick wickets.
While talking on Sky Sports, Tammy Beaumont explained why Australian Women’s Team is so ahead in the game. She said, “You could argue they’re the greatest cricket team of all time. I think they could challenge that great Australian team of the the the 2000s when I was growing up. I think they just keep on winning. They’ve lost one T20 game since 2020 World Cup and that was in a super over. I think, you know, hopefully the gap is starting to narrow. ”
“You see how England have completely revolutionised how they play the game. South Africa are taking them closer. India did give them a scare. But yeah, they’re certainly an amazing outfit and the way they keep it reinVenting themselves, bringing new players, young players who are performing on the crucial stage. And you know it’s always the old names. Beth Mooney. Jess Jonassen, Megan Schutt, Ash Gardner. ”
“Tahlia McGrath was batting at three and you know she’s world number 1batter and she’s coming in at 7 and 8 today. That’s how much depth they had and, that’s kind of why they’re so good on this world stage.”
“Ash Garner spoke yesterday about how they push each other in training. Maybe when they’re playing some of the nations that aren’t in that top three or four, there isn’t that challenge. But they talk about how they’re getting the best out of each other in training, putting each other under pressure, you know, in their domestic cricket, in their in their training. And that is why they perform when it gets tough.”
