WICB pres praises Windies women
KINGSTON—President of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Dave Cameron says the two-one, One Day International (ODI) Series by the regional women’s team over their counterparts from New Zealand is a “tremendous triumph and a true show of character.” “I want to congratulate captain, Merissa Aguilleira and the West Indies Women’s team on the magnificent performances which saw them clinch the series against the New Zealand Women,” said Cameron.“It was a joy to witness their efforts on the field and the way in which they rebounded after losing the opening match.” West Indies lost the opening match by one run on Sunday but responded with a huge 89-run victory on Tuesday.
On Thursday, they took the series with another big win by 95 runs at Sabina Park. “What we saw demonstrated here in Jamaica was a truly brilliant and remarkable display by the West Indies,” the WICB president said. “After losing the first match on Sunday, they pulled themselves together and rebounded like champions.” Stafanie Taylor was the leading performer with both bat and ball and was named Player of the Series. The world’s leading all-rounder scored 182 runs—including a match-winning 135 not out on Thursday. She also bagged 11 wickets—including 4-35 in the final match. “The matches were played in the true spirit of the game and both teams should be proud of their exploits,” he said. “We saw some fierce battle on the field of play but the players remained respectful throughout.” CMC
