England will have the upper hand when they face fellow heavyweights West Indies in the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 tomorrow, according to Heather Knight.
The teams clash in Dharamsala, both knowing that victory will earn a place in the semi-finals with a group game to spare.
Given that England yesterday beat India in Dharamsala but the Windies are yet to play there, Knight believes she and her team-mates will be better acquainted with conditions there.
Knight told ecb.co.uk: “If we get a win under our belts, that secures our place in the semi-finals as well.
“We know they will be a tough team. We’ve got an advantage. We’ve played in these conditions one game obviously before they have.
“Look, they’ll be a tough game and we’ll be looking to win and continue that winning habit.”
Charlotte Edwards’ side, who have won all five of their matches in India, including three-warm-up victories, were today granted an audience with the Dalai Lama.
No photographs were allowed, but some of the players tweeted as follows:
Can’t believe I just high-fived the Dalai Lama Amazing!

Meeting the @DalaiLama was a blessing and a complete honour. I’ll never forget the words he spoke and always look back on this day fondly.
