Australia cricket captain Meg Lanning is yet to make a decision about her WBBL future.

The 27-year-old Perth captain has been with the Scorchers for the past two summers but comes off contract at the end of the tournament.

Lanning will lead the Scorchers into Saturday’s semi-final against Adelaide at Brisbane’s Allan Border Field and says her own plans can wait until after Perth’s tournament is over.

“I haven’t given it a lot of thought to be honest,” Lanning told AAP.

“I’ve just been focusing on trying to help Perth win games of cricket.

“Once we finish up here on the weekend, whenever that is, I’ll have a think about what I’m going to do.”

Lanning is third on the run-scorers list in this summer’s tournament with her 101 against Hobart taking her to 530 runs at an average of 44.16 from Perth’s 14 matches.

A two-time competition highest run-scorer with the Melbourne Stars before moving west, Lanning would be welcomed back by her former team after they struggled in this summer’s tournament.

The Stars won just two games and finished dead last on the ladder, five points adrift of nearest team the Hurricanes.

If she does move back to Victoria, Lanning said her two seasons with Perth would be looked back on fondly regardless of the outcome of this weekend’s finals.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time here in Perth, it’s been a lot of fun and hopefully we can finish off well,” she said.

Saturday’s semi-finals begin with the Strikers and Scorchers in action from 10.10am (1110AEDT) before Brisbane Heat and the Melbourne Renegades play off for the final berth from 1.50pm (1450AEDT).
