Cricbuzz prediction: Lanning: Harris adds ‘another dimension’ to his T20 batting lineup for Australia

Since returning to the team last year, Grace Harris has been praised for adding ‘another dimension’ to Australia’s T20I batting roster, establishing herself as a key figure in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Harris, who made her international debut in 2015, was recalled for the T20 stage in Ashes last January, but rain and Australia’s top-order dominance meant she missed the opening round of the Commonwealth Games against India in late July. We were unable to enter the midfield until the match.

From 20 balls she made a giant leap to 37 balls after her 49-5 win. Australia needed her 155 balls and faced possible defeat. Harris followed suit with 41, 27 unbeaten and 64 unbeaten from 35 balls in India.

These final innings completed her brisk streak of 129 in 10.2 overs, with Ashley her Gardner delivering tremendous power to her side batting impressively. “Grace Harris in particular has stepped onto our side and added another dimension to our batting side,” captain Meg Lanning said ahead of the first T20I match against Pakistan in Sydney. “She can play off the ball and put pressure on opponents whenever she comes in. Pairing her with Ash Gardner feels like Ash’s pressure has been taken off a bit. To be fair. , all of our hitters worked on it.

Lanning will return to the T20I squad on Tuesday after missing the tour of India during a play break.While Alyssa Healy continues to recover from a calf injury, Beth enjoyed success against Pakistan.・I plan to participate alongside Mooney. Healy is gearing up for the World Cup in South Africa, where he will once again be at the forefront of a formidable batting team.

“[The Pakistan Series] gives people the chance to get in and play a role that’s a little bit different…there are a lot of options that make it a little bit harder at times,” Lanning said. It’s very hard to decide, a lot depends on the duel and who you’re playing against.”

Ellis Perry to ‘play key role’ at World Cup

That batting order could include her Ellyse Perry, who has revitalized her T20 game over the past six months. Against India, Perry scored her 160.19 in her third innings, taking new gear to the middle order role after coming under scrutiny in recent seasons amid the rise of numerous batting talents in the Australian game. I put it in. “In India, she came out and played differently,” Lanning said. “This game has always been for her, but now she has the confidence to come out and dominate the attack and she can hit the ball harder than anyone in world cricket.

“It was great to see her in India and after T20 and the World Cup, I think she will be an important part of us because she can be very dominant especially against spin. I look forward to seeing what role she can play for us.”

Legspinner Georgia Wareham is also celebrating her international comeback after an 18-month hiatus with her cruciate ligament injury, and although she only returned to the WNCL earlier this month, Lanning has made her
