Australia seamer, Megan Schutt says her side will still be taking the next game seriously despite already qualifying for the semifinals of the Women’s World T20.

Speaking at the post-match conference after their victory over New Zealand on Tuesday at the Providence Stadium, the 25-year-old responded to the thought of being in the semis with a match to go by saying “yeah it’s great, a classic case of one in the hand is better than two in the bush and I think it’s great to be locking in the semi-final position but we wouldn’t be taking the next game lightly.”

Schutt credited the White Ferns for their challenge, stating that during the match “I think they bowled really well in the middle and clamped down on us” but felt the start they had gotten with Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney putting on 71 for the opening partnership was key to them setting that total, opining that “I think we got 10-15 runs over par so 150 plus is defendable.”….
