ICC Women’s World Cup 2013: Holly Colvin says it will be ‘gutting’ if West Indies beat Australia

ICC Women's World Cup 2013: Holly Colvin says it will be 'gutting' if West Indies beat Australia

Mumbai: Feb 12, 2013

With England having an outside chance of qualifying for the ICC Women’s World Cup final, left-arm spinner Holly Colvin said the defending champions would have to make sure that they not just win but win convincingly against New Zealand in Mumbai on Wednesday.

“We obviously would have liked going into the game knowing that if you win then we are into the final, but games haven’t gone our way, so we just got to make sure we win well and make sure that we do our best. That is all we can do.

“You can’t control what is going to happen at the Australia and West Indies game, I am sure its going to be a quite close contest. All we can do is focus on our match and make sure that in our game against New Zealand, we win it as well as we can,” Colvin told reporters in Mumbai.

If West Indies beat Australia on Wednesday in their last Super Six match, the England-New Zealand game will become inconsequential, and Colvin said it would be absolutely gutting if her team didn’t reach the final.

“It would be absolutely gutting if we didn’t make it to the final. We believe that we can beat New Zealand and that is all you got to do before a game, make sure you are one up on them and make sure you have got to win the match,” she said.

Asked if it would be an advantage to play the day/night match, even as West Indies will take on Australia in a day game, the 23-year-old said, “It might be an advantage (to know what we need to do) but like I said, we need Australia to beat the West Indies and that is completely out of our control. So just got to focus on what we do.”

Colvin admitted that England’s two-run defeat to Australia proved really damaging.

“We knew there was a slim chance. This World Cup has shown that there have been quite a lot of upsets. There have been lot of close games. We just needed to influence the games we were playing,” she said.

Asked if the Decision Review System should be introduced in women’s cricket, Colvin said, “It is in the men’s game and it might be something that we would look to have but it has got to be fair to all teams, which means that every single game would have to be televised so that you could do that.”

“I think it has been a help to the men’s game and I am all for it. So why not in the women’s game.”
