Ecclestone: England have yet to play the best cricket ahead of World Cup final
Sophie Ecclestone believes England have yet to play their best cricket ahead of the Women’s World Cup final against Australia on Sunday.
The spin thrower earned a first five-for international as England progressed to the final with a 137-point win over South Africa in the semi-finals.
England beat South Africa by 137 runs to advance to the Women’s Cricket World Cup final
Ecclestone finished with numbers 36-6 as the Proteas were started for 156, in a game where Danni Wyatt scored with a first World Cup century in England 293 for eight.
England opened the tournament with three straight defeats, but a fifth straight win saw Heather Knight’s side secure a final with Australia, and Ecclestone believes England haven’t been at their best so far. now.
“I think when we lost three out of three there were a few tears in the locker room after the game,” said the 22-year-old spinner.
“I think everyone was very disappointed with the way we started, but I think the turning point was having a few meetings to just say we have nothing to lose now, so just put what we let’s practice in a game and go out without fear.
“We still haven’t played our best cricket so to get to the final without playing our best cricket is obviously so good to see from this group.”
