Cricket: World number 2 won keen in Sri Lanka
West Indies Women will be looking to kick on from their recent good showing when they face Sri Lanka in the opening match of the three-match One-Day Goodwill Series. The Windies finished runners-up at the recent ICC Women’s World Cup in India and in doing so jumped three places to second in the ICC Women’s ODI Rankings.
They arrived in Sri Lanka earlier this week directly from Mumbai, and will bowl off their tour on Friday morning with the opening match at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium.
Head coach Sherwin Campbell said his players are upbeat and will look to continue working on their skills as they face the improving Sri Lankans for the second series in the space of 12 months.
‘Now we have landed here in Sri Lanka and the aim is to build on what we did in India. The approach will be the same as always – hard work and commitment towards the team, which is what brought us our success.’
