Kiwi clash one to savour – Price

Australia’s Jamie-Lee Price is expecting a ‘final-like’ atmosphere when the Diamonds take on New Zealand in their Group F decider tomorrow.

Both teams have a perfect record so far, and have already secured semi-final qualification, but tomorrow morning’s encounter will determine who goes through to the last four as group winners.

Price believes that the match will be one to savour.

She said:

“We know that our next game is going to be very tough. The atmosphere is going to be pretty cool. We have a lot of Aussie fans over here so it kind of feels a bit like home, and there are a lot of Kiwis here as well, so it will definitely feel a bit like a final.

“It’s really exciting; you don’t realise until you walk on to court and you hear so many voices just how many people are cheering for you. We’ve got a big fanbase over here which is really cool – there are a lot of people behind us.

“We’re looking forward to the atmosphere and to the challenge of playing New Zealand and seeing where we’re at.”

23-year-old Price, who was a flagbearer for the Australian team at the 2007 World Cup, is revelling in her maiden tournament as a player.

She added:

“It’s a dream come true (to play at a World Cup) – it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do and I’m really excited.”
