“W.I. can win Women’s World T20″ – Coach



Some of the Action Today[www.inewsguyana.com] – Coach Sherwin Campbell has backed West Indies women to win the women’s twenty20 world cup, after their qualification for the semi-finals.

The Caribbean Side punished Sri Lanka by eight wickets on Friday to record their third straight win and storm to the top of Group B.

Led by a four-wicket haul from spinner Shanel Daley, West Indies bowled out Sri Lanka for 84 in the 17th over and then strolled to 87 for two, off just 15 overs with Stefanie Taylor stroking an unbeaten half-century.

West Indies women also made the semi-finals two years ago in Sri Lanka and in 2010, when the tournament was staged at home in the Caribbean.

They were good enough to reach the final of the 50-over world cup in India last year and Campbell believes the current winning streak is what the team needs in the build up to the final stages of the competition.

Campbell was full of praise for Daley whose spell made the difference in the Sri Lanka innings.

Sri Lanka women seemed to be coasting at 41 for one in the fifth over before Daley intervened, triggering a sudden collapse that saw the last nine wickets tumble for 43 runs.
