She hasn't touched a cricket ball since steering Australia to the the T20 World Cup title on Sunday in the Caribbean but Meg Lanning says she's ready to attack Saturday's opening round of the Women's Big Bash League in Melbourne.
The national captain also leads our Perth Scorchers, who first take on the Hobart Hurricanes at Junction Oval in a carnival of cricket with all eight teams playing over two days.
Lanning has had little sleep since the Southern Stars' emphatic win in the final over England but having played so much cricket through the T20 World Cup was confident her game was in good shape.
"It's been a bit of a whirlwind but we've hit enough cricket balls over the past six weeks so no doubt we will be ready to go on Saturday," the 26-year-old told AAP.
"I think it's a good thing we're getting straight back into it."
While delighted with Australia's success in Antigua, Lanning admitted she wasn't completely happy with her run tally through the tournament.
But she felt some big scores weren't far away.
"I would have loved to have scored more runs but at the end of the day we went over there to win the World Cup and we were able to do that," Lanning said.
"I'm looking forward to getting on to some Australian wickets and playing well.
"I feel like I'm hitting the ball well in the nets so it's about going out there and spending some time in the middle."
After sitting out last season following shoulder surgery, the 26-year-old joined the Scorchers, who have finished runners-up in the past two WBBL editions behind the Sydney Sixers.
During her two seasons with the Melbourne Stars Lanning had a competition-high average of 51.16.
At Perth the 26-year-old will join forces with fellow Australian batters Elyse Villani and Nicole Bolton.
Lanning said missing last year's tournament had made her hungry to play.
"It was frustrating watching. I'm not a good cricket watcher but this year's rolled around pretty quick so I'm excited to get out there with Perth and hopefully we can get off to a good start," she said.
"We've got some good young players coming through and some good internationals as well so I feel like we've got some good variety."
