Despite having a torrid time of international cricket over the last year and a half, three women from the West Indies side have still been picked as part of this decade’s best XI, according to ESPN.

Stafanie Taylor, who scored the most One-Day International runs and is one of the three highest run-scorers in the World in T20 Internationals over the course of the decade, was a shoo-in, while all-rounding legend from the region, Deandra Dottin, also had no equal.

As a bowler, Anisa Mohammed has been the standout spinner this decade and so has also taken her place in the XI.

Taylor, according to ESPN, is joined at the top of the order by New Zealand’s Suzie Bates, while at number three, Australia’s Meg Lanning was a sure pick. At four in the batting line-up comes Indian great, Mithali Raj, who averaged 55.31 in ODIs this decade and 37.18 in T20Is.

England wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor is set to walk at five in the team of the decade, while Australia’s Ellyse Perry and Dottin prop up the rest of the middle order.

The specialist bowlers in the side are made up of Shagnim Ismail, England veteran Anya Shrubsole, Mohammed and South Africa’s Dane van Niekerk.

This decade, Taylor scored 3993 runs at an average of 45.89, which included four centuries and 32 half-centuries. In T20Is, the 28-year-old West Indies captain managed 2639 runs at an average of 35.66 including 14 half-centuries.

Dottin’s all-round cricket has been impressive. She scored 2349 runs in ODIs this decade while taking 64 wickets. In T20Is the all-rounder was just as impressive, scoring 2175 runs while taking 58 wickets.

Mohammed has been the standout bowler this decade, taking an incredible 142 wickets in ODIs over the period. In 2011, for instance, the offspinner managed to remove 37 scalps from just 13 games. She has taken five or more wickets on three occasions since 2010.

In T20Is, where batters reign supreme, Mohammed was also brilliant, bagging 102 wickets with best figures of 5/12. She took five or more wickets twice in the period and had four for nine in 2010 and 2011.

West Indies Women’s captain, Stafanie Taylor, has scored the most One-Day International runs over the last decade of her career.

According to the statistics, Taylor, who led the West Indies women to a historic T20 World Cup win, has interestingly, done better in the longer format of the game, even though her team has only managed a runner up finish on the World stage.

This decade, Taylor has scored 3993 runs at a healthy average of 45.89.

Those runs mean she finishes the decade ahead of the prolific Meg Lanning, the Australian scoring 3,693 runs at an average of 52.75.

Taylor also bested another prolific scorer in the women’s game today, New Zealand’s Suzie Bates, who scored 3,621 runs this decade at an average of 45.26.

Taylor, on her way to amassing the total scored, scored the third-highest total among women in an ODI, slamming 171 against Sri Lanka in the 2013 World Cup.

Also along the way, she scored four centuries with two of those coming in 2013.

The all-rounder also scored 32 half-centuries over the period, with 2019 her most productive, where she scored five of them.

Though Taylor has not scored a century since 2013, she has consistently come close, scoring 95, 98 not out, 85, 90, 90, and 94 in the year’s following.

Taylor, a Jamaican, has opened for West Indies Women since she was a teenager, and is known for her determined accumulation of runs. At just 19, she became the youngest woman to reach 1000 ODI runs.

Jamaica and West Indies women cricketer Stafanie Taylor was, on Tuesday, named in the International Cricket Council's (ICC) One-Day International (ODI) Team of the Year.

West Indies Women’s captain, Stafanie Taylor said she is eagerly anticipating playing in the 2019 edition of the Courts Women’s T20 Grand Slam Franchise Tournament in Trinidad and Tobago.

Windies Women’s team captain Stafanie Taylor has been ruled out of the remaining series against India after sustaining an injury.

According to official reports, the all-rounder will be sidelined for two weeks after sustaining a "Grade 1 Medial Collateral Ligament Sprain".  Taylor suffered the knee injury during the last game of the ODI series, which India won 2-1.  The player, who was named the player of the series in the three-match ODIs, did not suit up for the team’s second T20I on Sunday.  Instead, spin bowler Anisa Mohammed took over from Taylor as captain with young Guyanese all-rounder Cherry-Ann Fraser named to the squad to replace the stricken star.

"It is very disappointing to lose Stafanie at this crucial time and she will no doubt be missed but her health and recovery are of utmost importance," said CWI chief selector Ann Browne-John.

"We have the ICC T20 World Cup in a few months and it is critical that Stafanie gets the time to recover and return to full fitness."

India defeated Windies in the second ODI by 10 wicket to go ahead 2-0 and claim lead in the five-match series.  The tourists opened with a thumping 84-run victory in the curtain raiser in St. Lucia.

 

 

Windies Women’s team captain Stafanie Taylor cracked a patient half-century but could not prevent a 6-wicket loss for the regional team as India claimed the three-match One Day International (ODI) series 2-1.

The 28-year-old all-rounder cracked 79 from 112 balls, which played a major role in rescuing the struggling Windies who were at one point hobbling along at 50 for 4.  Taylor first partnered with Kyshona Knight to steady the ship with a 34-run stand, before paring up with Stacy-Ann King to put 96 runs on the board.

The team looked set to climb over 200 but a late flurry of wickets, including that of Taylor’s, stymied those efforts.  With runs hard to come by the Windies total of 194 seemed likely to be a challenging target.  Openers Jemimah Rodrigues and Smriti Mandhana, however, in effect, made the total look like a walk in the park.

 The prodigious pair put on 141 in 25 overs for the first wicket, each bringing up sublime half-centuries. Mandhana was the more aggressive of the two, striking three sixes in her 63-ball 74, a knock which earned her the Player of the Match award. With the stroke which brought her to 50, she crossed the milestone of 2000 ODI runs, reaching the mark in just 51 innings, the third-fastest in women’s cricket. It was some return from injury.

 

 

West Indies women offspinner Anisa Mohammed claimed a wicket off the last ball to lead the Caribbean team to a one-run victory over India woman in the first of a three-match One-Day International (ODI) series at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Grounds in Antigua on Friday.

Chasing 226 for victory, India women finished with 224 at the end of 50 overs after needing nine off the last over with two wickets in hand. Mohammed took both wickets to finish with five for 46 from her allotted 10 overs.

Captain Stafanie Taylor top scored with 94 and Natasha McClean made 51 as West Indies women posted 225 for seven in their 50 overs.

Shikha Pandey and Deepti Sharma picked up two wickets each but West Indies women were able to stitch partnerships at regular intervals.

In reply,  Priya Punia (75) and Jemimah Rodrigues (41) gave India women a good start as the duo added 78 for the opening stand.

The visitors were cruising towards the target as they were 124 for two in the 30th over but suffered a collapse by losing their last eight wickets for just 55 runs.

Captain Mithali Raj failed to shine with the bat and Harmanpreet Kaur managed just five runs.

Taylor was also among the wickets, following up her 94 off 91 balls with the wickets of Rodrigues and Shikha Pandey (five) to finish with figures of two for 30 in her 10 overs. 

The teams will meet in the second ODI on Sunday.

The two teams will also play five T20Is as part of the build-up to next year's T20 World Cup.
