ST JOHN’S – 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 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.

“We have seen grit and determination to be the number one team in the world. They’re unbeaten (in this tournament) at the moment, and to win the title they will have to play unbeaten throughout . . . that would be a remarkable feat.” (CMC)
