Mumbai, April 5: The most unknown fact about Stafanie Taylor, the captain of the victorious West Indies women team is she has played with the male team and not only that she scored a century also. This was revealed by her coach Cleon Smith.
Speaking exclusively over telephone from his Jamaica home, the coach said, "she went to Eltham High School in Spanish Town in Jamaica, where she played for the school's male team. She also made a century for the school's under-16 male team".
"That was absolutely interesting", the coach added.
"First let's talk about Stafanie Taylor's tournament exploits, as her coach in the Jamaica team I am extremely proud of her. The 24-year-old Stafanie is ever so calm and lead by example both with bat and ball hence being named player of the tournament".
"She has been very successful as captain of the Jamaica team winning 5 titles and now her first as captain of the West Indies".
No financial help
Family members of the few Australian women players were believed to be in Kolkata on Sunday for the final. However, that was not the case with the Windies girls.
"We were not privileged to come to India to watch and support because of various reasons but mainly due to a lack of finance which we would have to provide for ourselves but I have been following the tournament on TV and giving support", the coach signed off.
