No mitigation for Lanning’s record-breaking Australians

(Reuters) – Australian captain Meg Lanning has vowed no team will let up as they look to extend their winning run after securing a 22nd world record ODI win in a row over New Zealand on Sunday.

Lanning’s side claimed a six-wicket victory at Mount Maunganui to move beyond the mark they shared with Ricky Ponting’s famous 2003 side.

And with her team set to come up again tomorrow for the second ODI of the series, Lanning said they’ll stick to their tried and tested formula.

“We like to play an aggressive brand of cricket. That’s natural for many of our players, ”she was quoted by The Australian.

“We don’t want to put hand brakes on at all. We want to go out there and enjoy ourselves and play with freedom. ”

The Australian sequence started back in March 2018 with an eight-wicket victory over India, and they have also beaten England, Pakistan, the West Indies and Sri Lanka during the highest run ever.

“It’s a great achievement for this group over a long period of time,” said Lanning.

“Those gains of ours have come over three years, which shows how consistent we’ve been in this format. It’s certainly a great achievement and something we will look back on. ”
