Get used to hectic schedule: Lisa Keightley to England women cricketers

Lisa Keightley has urged English women cricketers to adjust to the hectic cricketing schedule. The players of the national team played against the Indian women, in the Hundred tournament, in the domestic T-20 Cup, in the 50-over Rachel Heyhoe Flint trophy, and the New Zealand series. The tournaments and series have come along amidst the plethora of restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The girls need a break. We've had two international series with the Hundred in the middle, where the players are probably used to going from an international series back into domestic cricket, and then we've got the back end against New Zealand. With the Hundred, they're on telly all the time... you've got to perform and games come really quickly, and then you roll straight over and into an international series. That's new for the players and they're not used to it. We got through it, but I think at times players struggled with a bit of mental fatigue. They've got to get used to it because it's only going to be like that moving forward.
