"It was obviously a great series for us and the team is really in a great place at the moment," said Australia wicketkeeper-batter Alyssa Healy, who became the 'Player of the Series' for her impressive performances in the recently concluded Pakistan series; where Australia beat Pakistan 3-0 in their T20I series.

Healy has been in a great form for some time. She smashed two half-centuries in Australia’s 3-0 victory against WHITE FERNS in their T20I series in September-October and scored a 97 in the third ODI against Pakistan before the T20I series.

Talking about her form, she shared, "I'm just really enjoying my cricket at the moment, I enjoyed a really good pre-season at home and it felt like I'd matured a little bit."

"Taking over the (New South Wales) Breakers captaincy, I think that's helped me in a few different little areas."

"I'm really enjoying coming out here and opening the batting for Australia. I don't think there are too many better things to do in the world, so I'm just trying to cash in where I can and hopefully put the team in positions to win games," she further added.

Jess Jonassen has returned in the squad after her knee surgery. While talking about Jess Jonassen, she said, "It's great to see JJ back – she slotted back in really nicely and took her role back at point and carried on with the ball like she's done over the last six or so years for Australia.”

"It's great to have her experience on the field as well, and if need be with the bat she's going to do a job for us."

Meg Lanning didn't play the last T20I against Pakistan because of a lower back injury, and vice-captain Rachael Haynes led the team in her absence. Talking about her, Healy said, "I've got no doubt Meg will be fine. It was a huge loss for us but we have Rachael Haynes ready to pick up the slack and captain the side and she's done it tremendously well."

"There's enough experience within the squad to maintain what Meg's brought into the group but I have no doubt that comes to the World Cup, Meg will be fit and firing and ready to go."

Healy is hopeful about team's performance in World T20, said, "We wanted to be ranked No. 1 and hold the trophy. Hopefully, we can carry the great momentum."
