Australia sweat over Meg Lanning's fitness

Australia captain Meg Lanning is racing against time to regain fitness ahead of the Women’s World Cup semifinal against India on Thursday (July 20). The World No. 1 batter in ODIs suffered a shoulder injury during the early stages of the tournament that kept her out of the group-stage fixture against Pakistan.

“She’s working closely with the physios, the people that need to know (what Lanning’s situation is) know what’s going on,” Australia allrounder Jess Jonassen said.

The only change I could potentially see, and this is me thinking left-field a little bit, Rachael Haynes showed that she is capable with the ball, she’s great in the field, (and) Elyse Villani hasn’t necessarily produced the same (output) as her exciting start to the World Cup,” Sthalekar told The Unplayable Podcast.
