Bangalore: The White Ferns are host to a mini World Cup tournament involving India, England, New Zealand and its Trans Tasmanian neighbour Australia. England skipper Clare Connor took some time off to answer the following questions sent by e-mail by www.thatscricket.com."We have made improvements over the last six months, so are well prepared. We see Australia as the biggest challenge," she said in this exclusive interview.What are your team's chances at the quadrangular series?Our aim is to be in the final it was proved in July last that New Zealand is vulnerable if we can take an early wicket (164 all out)Does your team's overbearing performance against India last year giveyour team an edge (over India) or do you see the Indian team bouncingback?Never underestimate India, but we can go into the games against the Indians with confidence from beating them in the summer. We have made improvements over the last six months, so are well prepared.Who do think will play key performance in your team's bid to lift theCup?Charlotte Edwards, Lucy Pearson spearheading batting and bowling respectively. Half the squad has been playing in Australia and New Zealand for the last few months, which will strengthen us out of season - they willbe match fit and have learnt from the new experience.How do you rate your team against Australia and New Zealand?We see Australia as the biggest challenge in the tournament. It beat New Zealand 5-1 when they last met in January/ February 2002. But the Aussies have lost key players (Keightley/ Mason ) so they too are beatable if we play well!
