"It was not an easy decision to make, but I am content with the decision that I've made. When you're the Australian Captain, you get used to being seen in a certain way and it feels like you can't let your guard down too much. I definitely feel lighter after retiring from international cricket." Meg Lanning said.

Meg Lanning Lanning praised the inclusive and egalitarian atmosphere within the Delhi Capitals camp, highlighting the seamless integration of players regardless of their status within the team, saying, "I am a bit more relaxed around social media now. I was fairly guarded when I was playing for Australia. It's been really cool to come into the Delhi Capitals environment where social media is done a little bit differently. There's a lot of thought behind the ideas that the social media team comes up with at DC and I've tried to embrace some of those ideas."

Regarding the atmosphere in the Delhi Capitals camp, the Meg Lanning said, "Nobody's more important than anyone else and you can't tell the difference between who's playing and not playing. Everyone enjoys spending time with each other and that translates into our performance on the field. The Delhi Capitals is a really well-run franchise."

The veteran player, who has been a part of seven World Cup-winning teams, also took out time to visit some local places during her time in India, saying, "Cricket has taken me to some amazing places and some places that I wouldn't have travelled otherwise. The WPL has given me a good opportunity to go out and see some places locally in India. I look for a good cafe most of the time and I found a couple of nice spots in Mumbai and Bengaluru."
