ST JOHN’S – The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) today congratulated Stafanie Taylor on winning one of the most prestigious awards in women’s cricket.

Taylor, the West Indies women’s captain, was named the International Cricket Council’s Women’s T20I Cricketer of the Year, at the ICC Annual Awards announced for the period September 18, 2014 to September 13, 2015.

This is the third time the 24-year-old top-order batter and off-spinner won a major international award. She previously won the ICC Women’s ODI Cricketer of the Year award in 2011 and 2012.

During the period under review, Taylor scored 340 runs in nine matches with a best score of 78 off 58 balls against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Earlier this year, she led West Indies to a 3-0 series sweep against Pakistan.

President of the WICB Dave Cameron lauded Taylor for her award-winning performances and leadership of the West Indies women’s team.

“On behalf of the WICB and the various stakeholders in West Indies cricket I want to extend congratulations to Stafanie on winning this major award on the ICC cricketing calendar. She has been an outstanding representative and ambassador for West Indies from the first time she step foot on the international stage, back in 2008, and she keeps getting better,” Cameron said.

“Stafanie has demonstrated that she is not just an excellent batter and bowler but also a very good leader. She did a fantastic job when she took over the captaincy against Pakistan earlier this year and was immediately rewarded with a series victory.

“This award will help raise the profile of women’s cricket in the West Indies as it is further proof that young women in the Caribbean can rise to the top of the world in their chosen endeavour.” (PR)
