Captain Stafanie Taylor says captaining the West Indies in the ICC Women’s World T20 2018 is both a huge honour and a massive challenge but it will great feeling to lead the team at home.

The Windies women can claim a five-match T20I victory over South Africa when the teams play their third game on Sunday. 

The Windies Women lead the South Africa team 1-0 in their five-match T20I series after coming from 1-0 down to tie their ODI series 1-1. All the indicators suggest a more confident Windies side, the South Africans will find it hard to get the better of.

The Windies women have taken the momentum from their final-game win in an ODI series against South Africa in the Caribbean to win the first game of the follow-up T20 series. Barry Wilkinson believes if this is to continue, Hayley Matthews, Deandra Dottin, and Stafanie Taylor will have to do well.

WINDIES Women’s captain, Stafanie Taylor was elated and surprised when she found out about her latest record.

On International Women's Day SportsMax Zone takes a look at the women who have blazed a trail in sport.

The Windies Women suffered a demoralizing end to the three-match ODI series against New Zealand as Sophie Devine’s solid all-round showing led the hosts to a 205-run victory to end the series 3-0 in Christchurch.

A blistering ton from New Zealand opener Suzie Bates condemned the Windies Women to a crushing eight-wicket defeat in the second ICC Women's Championship ODI at Taunton on Thursday.

Sent in to bat the Windies captain Stefanie Taylor put together a solid 84 from 112 balls, but she was the only one to enjoy much success at the crease as the team posted 194 all out.  The target was comfortably run down by the Bates-led Kiwis who lost just two wickets in the process.

The regional team found momentum tough to come by early on after losing both openers Hayley Matthews (18) and Kycia Knight (17) in short order.  Next, at the crease, Taylor looked to hold the team’s innings together and was briefly joined by Chedean Nation, 35 from 58, as the duo put together a third-wicket partnership worth 61 runs. 

Nation was, however, caught by Bates off the bowling of Lea Tahuhu, who claimed 3 for 42 to leave the Windies at 96 for 3.  Leigh Kasperek then ripped through the rest of the batting order to ensure there were no more partnerships for Taylor who became one of Tahuhu’s victims when she was caught by Katey Martin in the 49th over.  In reply, the hosts eased to their target of 195 with 19.2 overs to spare, with Bates unbeaten on 101 Bates shared an opening partnership of 175 runs with Sophie Devine. 

With the victory, New Zealand have taken a 2-0 win in the three-match ODI series. While Windies have lost the series, they still have two vital ICC Women’s Championship points to fight for in the final game on Sunday.
