WI legends back Windies Women for T20 title

first_img Fighting spirit Lloyd, who moulded West Indies men into one of the great units of the 1970s and 80s, said he has been especially impressed with the spirit of the players. “I’m sure they will be able to defend the crown and I wish them the best and I hope they reach the zenith,” he added. “I like their professionalism … when they were down they defended well … we saw that against South Africa. They have brought back that spirit of the 70s and the 80s and have been a credit to the West Indies.” Two of the greatest players in the game’s history have thrown their full support behind West Indies women, in their bid to win the ICC Women’s Twenty20 World Cup on home soil. Sir Viv Richards, who is listed among the top five greatest cricketers of all time and Clive Lloyd, regarded worldwide as one of the best captains of all time, have given their backing to Stafanie Taylor’s team as they go in search of their second global title. “Congrats to captain and members of the team for reaching the semis and wishing them all the best in pursuit of a second consecutive World T20 title. So far, they have shown great skill and professionalism. Even when they were in tight situations they fought well and battled back,” said Lloyd, who oversaw West Indies’ capture of the 1975 and 1978 50-overs World Cup in England. Sir Viv, who was on hand for the team’s training session at the Coolidge Cricket Ground on Tuesday, backed the defending champs to repeat their 2016 performance, which saw them beat Australia in the final in India. West Indies will face three-time champions Australia in the first match at 3:00 pm at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium, while England meet India at 7:00 pm in a repeat of last year’s 50-Over World Cup final, which was played at Lord’s.last_img read more
