England ready for T20 finale
Claire Taylor has urged her team-mates to sieze the moment when England women meet Australia in the final of the NatWest Quadrangular Twenty20 at the Rose Bowl.
Taylor hit 66 on Sunday as England beat India - perfect preparation for Monday evening's final against the old enemy in Hampshire.
"I'm really looking forward to it," Taylor told ecb.co.uk.
"We have so many talented individuals in our team - it's really important that everybody puts their hand up whether it's with the bat, ball or if they get an opportunity in the field for a crucial run out or catch.
"They are the current World Twenty20 champions and have some very good individual players. We will regroup and have a look at what happened in their game, look at the things we need to improve on from the last three games and really come with an all-round game."
England have won all three matches in this four-team tournament including a 22-run victory over Australia at Bristol on Saturday.
That victory was England's fifth T20 win over Australia in six outings but captain Charlotte Edwards believes those previous results will count for little when battle commences at the Rose Bowl.
"The girls are really looking forward to the final," said Edwards. "We've got a good record against Australia and we'll be hoping that continues tomorrow. I dont think that will have any bearing. It think it will be a fantastic game of cricket and the two best teams are in the final."
