England Women players Fran Wilson and Danielle Wyatt chat with Matthew Jackson of Sporta Group during they training camp in La Manga.

The players talked about their preparations ahead of the 2020 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia in February and reflected on the facilities at La Manga.

The 9-day camp was managed by Sporta and included time in the fitness centre with training in the grass nets and fielding practice to get plenty of practice in high catches and out-fielding. It also helped simulate the warmer weather conditions that Australia will present next month.
