    Meg Lanning has already stamped her authority as the world’s best batter and she’s intent on maintaining her dominant form on the weekend in the WBBL competition when the Melbourne Stars travel to Sydney.


    Lanning, the top-ranked batter in the world in the ICC rankings, accounted for more than half her team’s score across their opening two games, both wins, with eye-catching knocks of 90 and 75no against the Brisbane Heat.

    The Stars’ skipper says there’s more to her side’s good start to the tournament than her brilliant form with the bat but she’s happy to be seeing the ball well nonetheless.

    “As an opening batter, your job is to get runs,” Lanning said on Thursday.

    “But it’s always nice to start off a tournament well. Being able to open the innings is nice, being able to settle in a little bit and push on from there. It’s nice to start off well (personally) and I’ll be looking to continue that this weekend as well.

    “(But) I think everybody has chipped in when they’ve had the chance and we’ve got great depth in our squad. You can’t rely on one or two people because, if you do that, you’re probably not going to go as far as you want in the tournament.”

    The Stars take on the winless Sydney Sixers on Friday and Saturday before Sunday’s clash with the top-of-the-table Hobart Hurricanes.

    Lanning’s side are third on the WBBL ladder after two games but the second-placed Heat have played four more matches for three wins and three loses, while the Hurricanes are the early pacesetter with four wins from four games.

    “I think the earlier in the tournament you can get the wins up, the better it is,” Lanning said.

    “You don’t really want to be chasing games towards the end of the tournament.

    “The ladder is a bit skew-whiff at the minute … it’s still very early in the tournament but we’re looking forward to keeping the winning streak going and getting as many wins on the board as we can.”
