WHAT THEY SAID

Meg Lanning: I wasn't sure so happy to have lost the toss. Not too worried about batting first. She (Ellyse Perry) has pulled up well and we have made no changes... Very excited and looking forward to the game.

Sophie Devine: We are bowling first. The pitch will not change a lot. We want to chase down the target. Our bowlers have been outstanding and we have worked hard on our fielding as well. We are playing the same side.
