Three West Indies Women cricketers have made important strides in the latest ICC women’s one-day rankings released last week.

Captain Stafanie Taylor has risen two places in the batting rankings to eight, following her 158 runs at an average of 52, in the Windies just concluded three-match series against Pakistan in Dubai.

The 27-year-old has been joined in the top 20 by all-rounder Deandra Dottin, who jumped one spot to 20th, after scoring 129 runs in the Pakistan series with a top score of 96 in the first ODI.

Shermaine Campbell was the other Windies player to move up in the rankings, gaining two places to move to 52nd.

The two other players who moved up were new ball pair of Shakera Selman and Shamillia Connell.

Selman rose eight spots to 26th, after picking up four wickets against Pakistan, while her new-ball partner Connell rose six places to 49th, following a similar four-wicket series haul.

Taylor, who bowls off-spin, dropped three places to 13th in the bowlers rankings after picking up just three wickets. As a result, she remained second in the all-rounders rankings behind Australian Ellyse Perry.

Off-spinner Anisa Mohammed is the highest-ranked West Indies bowler at 25th.
