Rain provides soggy ending to West Indies Women’s Tour to England

By June 26, 2019

Rain reigned supreme in the final match of the Vitality T20 International series between the West Indies Women and England Women, preventing a single ball from being bowled nor the toss being possible. 

After the first match of the series also failed an actionless day, England went on to in the second match by 42 runs, with the West Indies Women hoping to finish their UK tour on a winning note and head back to the Caribbean with a little wind in their sail.

That was not to be, as the rain started during the early morning and despite there being a short period where it stopped and play looked possible, it was back again, leaving the match officials no choice but to abandon the match.

As expected, the ladies were disappointed at not being able to draw the series, but despite the less-than-desirable results, the team will return to the Caribbean with a better unit for the lessons the English had taught them.

Karishma Ramharack, playing in only her second series for the West Indies Women said each player would reflect and work on improving those areas in which they fell short in time for the next series.

The West Indies Women will host Australia for three One Day Internationals and three T20 Internationals in September.
