More competitive, more positive, fewer overs
It's really good to be back with the girls again. Although we have trained and played warm-up games together, there is always a buzz and excitement when you meet up as a group for the start of a tournament.
Following on from the World Cup there is a mixture of feelings. Obviously we hope to take as much as possible that led to the team's success down under, but we are also very aware this is a totally different format of the game and a completely fresh start.
Therefore if we intend to be successful we need to approach this with as much or even more intensity and discipline.
For a tournament it doesn't get any bigger, our first ICC World Twenty20, at home and alongside the men.
For us this will be a massive opportunity to showcase our talent and being alongside the men means both being given the credibility and an opportunity to win fans.
Having the semi-finals and finals prior to the men's games and televised is a massive incentive for us. There has already been a massive push in the women's game with the coverage and support received and here is an ideal chance at home to take it to the next level.
For me personally I am looking forward to the ICC World Twenty20, and hope to play a bigger part than in the previous World Cup.
I really enjoy this format of the game as it allows one to be positive. Again competition in the squad is close, so I will have to be prepared to take my chance when it comes.
Looking at the competition for the tournament, I feel there will be a lot of excitement and teams to watch.
New Zealand have many batters who can hit the ball easily out of the park and will put in a strong challenge.
The exciting thing about Twenty20 is no team can become complacent, as any team involved can win on any day.
I think we have a good chance based on previous success and current form, but we will have to play one game at a time.
