Aussie women holding back Ashes celebs

AAP Australian Sports – Victory in the first Twenty20 at England’s favourite ground on Friday will mean more to the Australian side than retaining the women’s Ashes last Sunday.

Summary

  • Victory in the first Twenty20 at England’s favourite ground on Friday will mean more to the Australian side than retaining the women’s Ashes last Sunday.
  • “Most definitely it will mean more, going off how the feeling was last Ashes, yes we did retain them but it would have been much sweeter to actually win them and that’s something we’ve spoken about,” Gardner said.
  • In addition, the fact that Chelmsford has been a fortress for England’s women, with a perfect 14 wins from international matches at the ground, makes Australia want to rise to the challenge of winning there.
  • “We know what their record is like – they call it their fortress for the reason – they’ve never lost a game there, so I think it’ll make us all a little bit hungrier to beat them at a ground like that,” Gardner said.
  • “It was pretty nice to do something together as a team away from cricket and see things I never thought I’d be able to see,” Gardner said.
