What they said?
“We still have a possibility of qualifying, winning four games so I think we just need to go out there and fight as hard as possible for these last couple of games and hope that things go our way” – Hayley Mathews believes that her team can still make it to the knock-out phase of the tournament.
“We need to work on our fielding . . . someone needs to keep going. In bowling we need to look at our options – need the balance right and clear in our plans and what is going on” – New Zealand captain, Suzie Bates, believes her team is a team in progress.
