Thursday, March 31 was a very good day for West Indies cricket, as before the men took the field, the women’s team, captained by Jamaica’s Stafanie Taylor, booked its spot in the finals of the World Twenty20 championships. They defeated New Zealand by six runs to set up a clash with arch-rivals Australia for the trophy on Sunday.
