Cricket West Indies chairman of selectors Courtney Browne says that the regional women’s team is good enough to defend their title and win the Women’s Twenty20 World Cup for a second time.
Browne made the prediction as players continued their preparation camp in Barbados for the global event, to be played in the Caribbean from November 2-25.
The official tournament matches will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua, Darren Sammy Stadium in St Lucia, and the National Stadium at Providence in Guyana.
Under the captaincy of the dynamic Stafanine Taylor, the West Indies won the last Twenty20 World Cup in India two years ago to lift their first major world title.
The victory came the same day the men’s team, under Darren Sammy, won the corresponding title.
Browne said women’s cricket was on a rapid rise globally and this year’s world event should provide a true reflection of the quality of play.
He added that the upcoming Cricket West Indies Twenty20 Blaze and Super50 tournaments in Jamaica in June would give the Windies selectors a further gauge of regional talent.
