Danielle Wyatt, who is one of only two women batters at the International level to have got two hundreds playing for her country in the T20I Cricket, has come out and expressed that she really wants to hit the third one quickly for England ahead of the three lion's upcoming home summer.
Wyatt, the right-hand big hitter, was heard saying to Sky Sports that, "I haven't looked back since I got my 100 in Canberra, I've got one in Australia and one in India, now I want one in England!"
England who haven't played any ODI at home since their World Cup final win over India last year will be starting the new ICC Women’s Championship cycle with a three-match series against South Africa. New Zealand will later join the two teams for a T20I triangular series and this has got Wyatt excited. She posted a tweet expressing her happiness on getting selected for the start of the home summer.
Wyatt wasn't selected to play in the that big final and she still feels the pain of it. She was quoted saying recently that it, "knocked my confidence, it made me go out and train harder"
She has been given the confidence to play with intent all the time by the head coach Mark Robinson and it has liberated her. She says, “to hit every ball for six, which I’m good at doing at the moment, In the past, I have gone out there as a pinch-hitter who has just hit 20 off 15 balls, looked good and then thrown my wicket away"
"I'm very experienced now, I've been playing in the Women's Big Bash for three years, played 100-plus matches for England and it's nice to finally get a big score. I haven't looked back since I got my 100 in Canberra. Hopefully, this is the start of many more runs to come."
