England cricketer Lauren Winfield says the players want to 'right the team's wrongs' at the T20 Cricket World Cup.

Winfield was part of the team that lost to Australia in the final of the 2018 World Cup and said the loss still hurts.

“We want to win it; we want to right our wrongs a bit. You’re watching adverts on TV and they’re showing the Aussies lifting the trophy last time - it hurts. 

"We definitely want to go all the way but in order to do that we’ve just got to take it game-by-game,” she told The Telegraph.

The final is set to be held at Melbourne Cricket Ground which has a capacity of 95,000. 

“It's going to be a huge spectacle. It instantly makes you think about that feeling at Lord's - having a packed house and atmosphere. They're the games you want to be involved in as a player.

“When we were at Lord's in 2017, that atmosphere and that feeling as a player, you’ll hold on to forever. It’s certainly something we want to feel again - to be able to play in front of such an incredible crowd in a massive occasion is pretty much what you put all the hours of work in for.

"You want to showcase your talent and what you work so hard at as a team and show the world how good you are.”

England's campaign begins tomorrow against South Africa.
