Star member of the England Women's team answers readers' queries
We asked fans on @cricketicc to send your questions to England star Sarah Taylor, who was part of the team that defeated Pakistan by 43 runs today. This is what she had to say in reply.
@iamusf wanted to know if England can win the ICC World Twenty20
Yes absolutely, but we are taking the competition one game at a time.
@msdthegod wanted to know if Sarah prefers batting or keeping
I like doing both, I want to be involved in the game 100% of the time so it’s great to bat at number 3 and keep wicket.
@MahithGamage69 was keen to learn how England women’s team prepares for matches and trains
We train hard in the nets, fielding and in the gym both as a team and individually. Everyone has their own way of preparing for a match, I like to listen to music.
@crick_ENGINEER was interested to know if the conditions in Sri Lanka suited England
We are used to playing in all sorts of conditions and have toured out here before so have prepared well. We’re an adaptable team so will play to whatever conditions we face.
@cricket_fun wanted to know about how the England women’s team plays spin
We are all strong players of spin and are lucky to have some top spinners in our squad to face in training. We’re adaptable and know our game plans so we don’t have any fear of facing spin bowlers.
