Laura Marsh Determined To Repeat World Cup Success In ICC Women’s World Twenty20

ICC Women's World Twenty20 Laura Marsh

England spinner Laura Marsh has admitted she can’t wait to be involved in her side’s attempt to win the ICC World Twenty20.

Marsh, who was the leading wicket-taker at the ICC Women’s World Cup earlier in the year, will be hoping to repeat her excellent spin partnership with Holly Colvin, which was one of the key reasons behind Charlotte Edwards’ side triumph in Australia.

“We are really excited. We don’t often get the chance to play in front of big crowds and the chance of playing at Lord’s in the final, and Trent Bridge or The Oval in the semi-final, is a fantastic prospect and we can’t waited to get started,” said Marsh.

“We looked at this year and said it was a massive year with three major titles for us. To win the World Cup was very special but we only have done one third of the job. We are now concentrating on the World Twenty20 and if we win that it would be fantastic and something I would never forget.”

Marsh, who only turned to spin a year and a half ago after previously being a medium-pace bowler, admits that two months after beating New Zealand in the final, the reality of being a World Cup winner has hit her and she has enjoyed being able to inspire more people to play the game.

“The events have sunk in and we are really proud to have been part of a World Cup winning side. It has been good not to have had too much time to look back at the event and all of our focus is now on the Twenty20,” she said.

“Generally people if you ask them about women’s cricket they will know that we won the World Cup and we have put ourselves on the map a bit more.”

“I have just been to a local club for a primary school presentation and everybody was so excited to see an England player and one of the most special things is passing on your knowledge and inspiring young cricketers.”
