West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor said that she is glad to be back in action.
In the video shared by the West Indies board, the all-rounder said that the women’s cricket needs it right now.
“Women’s cricket needs it, and you know to see what has happened in the World Cup that recently concluded where 80,000 (86,174) people were at the stadium watching. It’s good to see that we are back and running,” she said.
In the video, she also added that the conditions in England will be challenging and is different from what it is in the West Indies and she is looking forward for the same. She also added that she is a bit rusty considering that this will be the first game since the lockdown.
The West Indies team has landed in England and is currently in quarantine. They will begin the practice soon for the 5-match T20I series.
This will be the first major series in women’s cricket since the World Cup T20. The series was initially planned as a bilateral between India and England. Due to coronavirus pandemic, the series was postponed and then was supposed to happen as a tri-series with South Africa being the other team.
However, nothing went through due to the coronavirus restriction in both the countries and finally, West Indies had come onboard for the series.
