The countdown to the 3rd edition of the Courts Women’s T20 Grand Slam Franchise Tournament is on and in 2019 it will feature none other than WI skipper, Stafanie Taylor. 

“I am really looking forward to participating in the Courts T20 Grand Slam this year. I have participated in the WWBL and the Kia Super League for the past few years and being a part of that energy and atmosphere, I have always wanted to have something like that back in the Caribbean,” said Taylor 

Taylor, currently ranked as the no. 3 All-rounder in the world and no. 4 on the batters list, hopes that the tournament can invigorate further interest in the women’s game from players, fans and sponsors alike.

“Women’s cricket is really growing globally; thousands of people come out to watch these leagues, and lots of sponsors back teams. I would love to see that level of excitement and interest in women’s cricket in the Caribbean,” she said. “We have a lot of talent coming from all the islands, and the support of the fans is needed”.

She commended the Trinidad and Tobago Women’s Cricket Association for the initiative, as well as Cricket West Indies for providing further support. “I have to commend both the TTWCA and CWI as well as all other sponsors and team owners for helping to make this tournament happen. We are heading into the T20 World Cup next year and this is going to provide some much needed playing time for the girls who will eventually make the team.

Taylor will line up for the Southern Titans in this year’s tournament which bowls off on December 3 with the Grand Final on December 13th.
