Taylor enjoying limelight

WEST INDIES women cricket team all-rounder Stafanie Taylor has admitted her delight in being the focal player on the regional squad.

The 20-year-old right-handed batsman and off-spinner is currently ranked the top player in the women’s game, according to the game’s governing body ICC (International Cricket Council).

The Jamaican, speaking after last Wednesday’s abandoned Fifth One-Day International between the West Indies and Sri Lanka at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, said that it’s not a burden for a lot of expectations to be placed on her shoulders.

“I think the team knows that I love to be out there, the team knows that I love to bat, the team knows that I just love being on the field,” she stated. “Anything to do with the team I just love. I find that they depend on me a lot but I find that if I love to do something, I try my best to actually stay there.”

The West Indies won the five-game ODI series 3-1, with the final three matches being held at the Queen’s Park Oval.

“It’s my first time playing at the Queen’s Park Oval,” admitted Taylor. “I’ve heard about it. I must say it wasn’t an experience that I really wanted, as a ‘bats-person’.

“The pitch was slow, I tried to adjust but it didn’t work out as I wanted. At the end, the team came out victorious and I’m happy about that.”

Asked about the crowd attendance for women’s cricket in the Caribbean, Taylor replied, “I must say persons still don’t know that women are actually playing. For them to actually know it, stuff have to be put in place, such as advertising.
