Cricket West Indies (CWI) has congratulated Stafanie Taylor on becoming the first West Indies women’s player to score 3,000 runs in T20 Internationals.

The outstanding Jamaican all-rounder reached the milestone during the second T20 International against England at the Incora County Ground in Derby last week.

It was her 103 innings where she scored 28 and now has 3,020 runs at an average of 36 per innings.

Taylor is also leading the West Indies woman in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) with 4, 724 runs at an average of over 44.

CWI Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams lauded Taylor for her brilliance over a career which started in 2008 against Ireland in Dublin.

He said the 29-year-old player had again etched her name in history’s pages and continued to be a role model and leader in West Indies cricket.
