The West Indies Women A Team will switch formats, but they will be working towards more success on their ongoing tour of Pakistan. Led by captain Rashada Williams, the West Indies beat Pakistan Women A 2-1 in the just concluded 50-over series. Williams said they will aim to win the Tri-Nation T20 Series which will also feature the Thailand Women’s Emerging team.
West Indies bowl off their campaign on Thursday at 10am local time (1am Eastern Caribbean/12 midnight Jamaica). West indies will have their second match against Thailand on Friday.
Williams batted brilliantly and kept wicket well in the 50 over matches to be named the Player of the Series. Ahead the T20s she urged her team to maintain the same energy which saw them come from behind to eclipse the hosts in a close fought three-match rubber.
“It was a really good feeling to win the One-Day Series and now we focus on our prep for the T20 series which is a shorter and faster format. We want to execute our skills well so we can come out champions again. We are playing extremely well as a team and we fought hard to win earlier. We know our strengths and we want to play to our strengths.”
Pakistan skipper Rameen Shamim stated:
“We have learnt from the mistakes made in the one-day series and have prepared accordingly. We are aiming to give our best in the tri-series. It’s a big opportunity for the team. The combination of the team is really good. We have a mix of senior players and fresh talent so we are optimistic about our chances.”-CWI
