The Ashes: England bowler Kate Cross says the secret to victory has been neutralizing Australia’s “aura.”
According to Kate Cross, taking the “aura” away from the world champions Australia was essential to England’s Ashes comeback.
The points-based series is tied at 6-6 with two games remaining after England won the opening one-day international of the multi-format series on Wednesday by a margin of two wickets.
The visitors, who are widely considered as one of the greatest teams in sports history, just need to win one more game to reclaim the Ashes, but they have now dropped three straight after building a dominating six-point lead.
Before Cross and England’s captain Heather Knight arrived to the crease to finish the incredible comeback, England had dropped to 235-8 trying to chase down 264. Knight finished unbeaten on 75.
I do not want to lose this game, I was just thinking to myself.
