(CWI) BRIDGETOWN, Barbados- West Indies Women suffered an eight-wicket defeat to England Women, to finish with a 5-0 series defeat to the visitors.
Captain Hayley Matthews said, “I think we need to look at the positives from the series. It’s really good to have the youngsters joining the squad and it’s going to be a big improvement in bolstering our squad and getting the experience. Yes the series didn’t go our way but I believe this is the start of something good.”
