WIPA has definitely made a tremendous impact when it comes to women’s cricket, they have made us more visible in the cricketing circles and I must applaud them for putting us on the map where West Indies cricket is concerned.
It’s a great achievement for me to be recognised amongst the top players in the world. It shows me that all the hard work I’ve been doing over the last year is paying off and being acknowledged. This is motivation to keep working hard and enjoy our sport.
You have to love the sport and be dedicated, hard work is the only true way to real success, and once you are committed, the sky is the limit.
My first bat was shaped out of a coconut branch by my brother, and from that day, all I wanted to do was to be a West Indian cricketer.
To the people who rallied around us in our darkest times, thanks for the support; proud to say that West Indies will be a part of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.
The way I look at it, there are no holidays in cricket. I never stop training… rain or shine, I’m playing cricket.
My take on women’s cricket is that it has grown, but it can grow a bit more once we continue to support it.
For me, being a debutant you have nothing to lose. You just have to go out and give it your all.
I didn’t like to be friendly with rivals, I wanted them to feel the heat.
You can’t go through life without struggles, and with those struggles, lessons are learnt where you can only grow from it all.
We are professionals just like the men, and we want the game to grow even more so that young girls coming up will want to be a part of women’s cricket.
To think that a girl like me from the inner-city would have made such impact… that I would be recognized by my country, is beyond anything I would have expected.
