She announced her intention to return to bowling duties in the upcoming series against India. She revealed that she had refrained from bowling post the Ashes series to allow her body some much-needed rest.
“The plan is to be back for the India series in December. The decision not to bowl post-Ashes, I guess, was more to give the body a bit of a rest and to train without having to rush around and doing everything all the time, so it was quite nice actually,” Sciver-Brunt stated during the post-match presentation.
Sciver-Brunt’s enthusiasm for her return to bowling was palpable as she expressed her eagerness to once again wield the ball. Her commitment to contributing to all facets of the game as an all-rounder was evident when she said, “When you’re playing games, I want to influence as much as I can in every part of the game. That’s the best part of being an all-rounder. Fielding and not being able to influence with the ball was a little bit frustrating but I was happy to have the body break.”
