Meg Lanning, the captain of the Australian women’s cricket team, who recently won her team the historic gold medal in the Commonwealth Games, has announced an indefinite break from cricket.

She believes that she has been playing cricket continuously for the last two and a half years and she now want to stay away from it for some time.

Let us tell you that Lanning has recently made her team champion in T20I and ODIs cricket apart from winning gold in Commonwealth Games. Apart from this, she also registered a spectacular win in the home Ashes series.

On this occasion the CA of the Australia Women’s Performance Cricket Board said that “We have this so proud of Meg for admitting, she needs a break and we will continue to support her in the meantime.”

“She has been an incredible contribution to Australian cricket over the past decade, has achieved remarkable achievements both individually and as part of the team, and has been a stellar role model for new kids.” The welfare of our players is always ours. First priority, and we will continue to work with Meg to ensure she gets the support and space she needs.
