Cricbuzz prediction:Meg Lanning returns from break as Australia’s women’s captain against Pakistan

Lanning took a break from the game to focus on himself after Australia won gold at the Commonwealth Games in August.

World Cup winner Meg Lanning is back to lead Australia in next month’s ODI series against Pakistan.

The 30-year-old was away from the game to focus on himself after Australia won gold at his Games at the Commonwealth in August.

She missed the Women’s Big Bash League and the recently concluded tour of India due to a five-month hiatus.

“I can’t wait to get back on the field for @auswomencricket’s match against Pakistan.

You may need to press pause, step back, and take a breath. It’s definitely what I needed,” Lanning posted on her Instagram on Friday.

“Her six months have taught me a lot. I learned a lot about myself and who is important to me. I have always played cards fairly close to my chest. “This experience has given me a deeper understanding of how speaking openly to people who care about you can make difficult times easier. It’s okay to admit you’re out of control.

“After enjoying time and space. Freshened up and ready to play the game you love with the team you love. It’s such an exciting time for gaming and I can’t wait to be a part of it!” she added.

Cricket Australia (CA) on Friday named her 13-man squad for a three-game home ODI series starting 16 January.

Star wicketkeeper bat Alyssa Healy, who led the Australian team in the Tour of India, will miss the series with a foot injury.

Healy strained his right calf batting in his fourth T20I last week.

“Alyssa will not recover in time from her calf injury, so this provides an opportunity for Beth to wear her gloves in her absence,” Flegler said.

All-rounder Talia McGrath will replace Lanning.
