Australia stars go barefoot in World Cup bonding session

Australia stars go barefoot in World Cup bonding session

Ellyse Perry was keen to share the acclaim after her career-best seven for 22 helped Australia to a thumping 194-run victory over England in the third and final Women's Ashes One-Day International on Sunday.

Australia have made a point of tapering their on-field aggression in the wake of the ball-tampering scandal, with no incidents of note in this World Cup. "It's all on them", said Lyon. That's the exciting thing about it. Mitchell Starc took two for 59 against the Proteas to move him to 26 wickets as he equalled compatriot Glenn McGrath's record for most scalps at a single World Cup.

"They have got a lot of success in the bank".

The 28-year-old has developed into a pivotal part of the England limited-overs set-up, but Bayliss admits he is under consideration for a place in the Ashes squad against Australia later this year. "He's obviously a great player", he said.

"Phwoah! It doesn't get much better does it?" he told reporters in Birmingham, where the reigning champions will face England on Thursday.

The standard might not have reached the heights that we have enjoyed during this World Cup so far, and there were no spectacular Ben Stokes one-handers. "How good is that?" The task though will not be easy as Australia have been brilliant throughout the World Cup despite slipping up against South Africa in their last round robin match.

Prosecutors said the ship transported coal to other countries and carried heavy machinery into North Korea, according to CNN . Otto Warmbier's family won at $500 million lawsuit against the North Korean government in December over his treatment.


After strike partner Megan Schutt (2-21) dismissed Natalie Scriver (0), Perry added the scalps of skipper Heather Knight (5) and Danni Wyatt (1) to leave England at 6-21. His temperament is excellent for it.

Australia off-spinner Nathan Lyon has already done his best to unsettle England by insisting "it's their World Cup to lose".

"Imagine if all the boys were still in Australia and hadn't played any cricket?" "We're really lucky", Langer said. Overall, this is only the 10th instance in Women's ODI cricket where the top five scored less than ten runs collectively in an innings.

However there were occasional flashes of quality, a pair of great running catches on the boundary, a couple of a nifty run-outs and a whole host of sixes lifted into the adjacent gardens at South West Manchester Cricket Club. "That's a luxury for us and a real bonus". "It's a definite option we've been talking about around the selection table for the last 12 months or so".

Top-order batsman Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh were ruled out of the World Cup after suffering a hamstring injury and a fractured arm respectively. It was just a moment to get a feel for the ground, literally.

"You do that lap and you can see all the different views from the ground and where you might be fielding and it gives you an opportunity to take it all in before it all starts on Thursday". I try not to get too involved to be honest.
