Edwards hungry for more success

Watch our video with Charlotte Edwards as she reflected on the Women's Ashes victory

The Women's Ashes trophy might still be gleaming but that has not stopped Charlotte Edwards from planning another raid on silverware.

Still jet-lagged after flying back from Australia, you could forgive Edwards if she spent the next few weeks wrapped up in a duvet reminiscing about a wonderful month in which England retained the Ashes.

But after a series of media interviews and a Chance to Shine event in Kent, Edwards has already turned her attentions to the business of winning trophies with next month's World Twenty20 in Bangladesh top of her wish-list.

"Our focus switched quite quickly from the Ashes to the T20," Edwards told ecb.co.uk.

"The girls are having a bit of a break, but we are then straight back into training and then it's three or four weeks before we fly out to Bangladesh.

"It should be another fantastic occasion. It's going to be a great tournament. They always are, the T20 World Cups, especially running alongside the men. We are certainly looking forward to that."

Edwards has won everything in the game: multiple Ashes series, a World Cup, a World Twenty20 and the ICC Women's Player of the Year to name just a few.

But the England captain is still driven by a burning ambition to eclipse whatever the previous triumph might have been.

"It's great as your career goes on to keep having highlights," she said. "Hopefully I will have many more to come.

"I am as hungry as I've ever been and I'm as motivated to still lead the team. This is why we all train so hard. To have moments like that at my age is very special.

"I look back with an enormous amount of pride. I am completely proud of what the team have achieved. It's an outstanding achievement to go to Australia and win the Ashes. I don't think it has sunk in yet but I guess we've got to quickly move on to the T20 World Cup."
