Windies Women’s team skipper, Stafanie Taylor, has called upon the team to improve  their performances at the crease, despite a 31-run win over South Africa in group A of the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 on Wednesday.
In the end, a comfortable victory catapulted the Windies to the top of group A, with a second consecutive conquest.  Taylor’s career-best figures of four for 12 and a brilliant all-round fielding effort put the punctuation on a spirited Windies effort but for the second match in a row the team’s run-scoring effort seemed to have left the bowlers with their work cut out.
The top order did not stick around long as top stars Hayley Matthews, Deadra Dottin and Taylor were all back in the pavilion with just 20 runs on the board and the team struggling at 4 for 29.
“We definitely need to improve in that area.  I find that the bowlers have been doing really well for us; so we just have to help out the bowling and put some
runs on the board,” Taylor said.
“Tonight I think was one of those nights where the application wasn’t good, the shot selection wasn’t there.  I think if we could have been a bit more laid back and watched what the pitch is doing we would have been better off,” she added. (SportsMax)
