Southern Stars‘  Cathryn Fitzpatrick talks to CA TV as to how the pitch results for the matches of the men’s ICC World T20 are not that great an influence on the women’s tournament which is being held simultaneously.


The Southern Stars have already qualified for the semi-finals of the ICC Womens World T20 in Bangladesh and are awaiting their opponents who are yet to be decided after the group stages concludes.


Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry has said that her team can kick-start their women’s ICC Womens World T20 2014title defence on the back of Tuesday’s six-wicket win over South Africa.


Perry and Jess Cameron (27 off 24) smashed an unbeaten 60-run partnership to steer the Southern Stars to victory, which was sealed with Perry’s sixth four of the match, after coming together with the situation looking dire.
