The Guyana National Stadium in Georgetown will host six teams on the first day in a triple-header. India and New Zealand will kick things off, while the hosts and defending champions Windies will play last under lights.

The captains of the six sides taking the field on the opening day spoke to the media. Below are excerpts from their interactions, the full transcript is available on the Online Media Zone. 

Australia captain Meg Lanning:

“T20 is changing all the time. It can change within one ball or an over. You need to be able to play according to what the situation is. I think as a squad we've been able to do that over the last probably 12 months. 

“We've adapted well. Yeah, so I think our team is in a really good position to be able to do that. If you don't adapt to what you're doing, you're probably going to get left behind.” 

Bangladesh captain Salma Khatun:

“We have done well in the Asia Cup, especially winning twice against India which was very critical. I'm a bit concerned about the last series against Pakistan. 

“Since then we have come to the West Indies a week ahead of the tournament, and so far seem to be in good form. We’re hoping to do well in the World Cup.”
