Chloe Tryon believes the bowling attack will bounce back from the punishment they took against England when they face India on Saturday.
The Proteas attack were on the receiving end of a record stand of 275 runs between Tammy Beaumont and Sarah Taylor. Nevertheless, Tryon expects no ill effects from the game.
‘I felt that the girls showed a lot of character, but still, I felt as though in the first half, we could have restricted them to 50 or 60 runs short of what they made. We know that our bowlers will bounce back though, we always have,’ Tryon proclaimed.
Tryon said that despite coming to the crease with the Proteas in real strife, she was pleased with her quick-fire 54 though disappointed at losing her wicket late in the 44th over.
‘I didn’t have any time to get my eye in because I had to get in an hit at twelves [twelve runs an over].
‘I was really excited with the way that I went about it, I still had that belief, it was unfortunate that I went out, I feel that I could have gotten us close if I’d stayed, but it’s [her score] definitely one of the positives that I’ll be taking into the game against India,’ she remarked.
Tryon feels that the only way to triumph over the unbeaten India side is to bat, bowl and field exceptionally well.
‘We’ve played a lot of cricket against India, they are a world class team and are playing really good cricket at the moment, so we need to make sure that all departments fire on the day.
‘If we can play like we did in that game against the West Indies, we’ll do well,’ she added.
The right-hand batter says the team is relishing a return to Leicester, a ground on which they have recorded both of their wins so far this campaign.
‘We feel like this is our home ground now,’ she concluded.
‘We’ve played a few games here. We’re used to the conditions, we know the ground really well, so feel we like we have the upper hand.
‘We’re looking forward to making use of that knowledge and firing tomorrow when it counts.’
The match begins at 11:30 SAST on Saturday.
