Quotes from teams

Hayley Matthews, Captain of the Barbados Royals, said: “It is great to be back with the Barbados Royals for this year’s WCPL. Obviously we are hoping to go one step further than we did last year but with the calibre of players within the squad this year we think we have a really good shot of doing that. The inclusion of foreign internationals throughout all the teams will help improve the standard of the competition overall. Within the Royals we have a really good blend of experience from the local girls as well as the girls coming in from overseas which should hopefully help us gel well together with the youngsters as well.” 

Stafanie Taylor, Captain of the Guyana Amazon Warriors, said: Franchise cricket for women is on the rise and I am happy that the CPL has made it possible for the Caribbean women to compete. I’m really happy about the group of players in my team and I look forward to working with them all and hopefully lead us to winning the title. I know the season will be exciting with the new overseas players that have been added to the competition and I’m just raring to go.

Deandra Dottin, Captain of the Trinbago Knight Riders, said: “It is a tremendous honour to be re-appointed as Captain of the Trinbago Knight Riders women’s franchise in this year’s WCPL tournament. To lead a team that is made up of some of the biggest names in the women’s game is nothing short of a privilege. This tournament is fundamentally significant, not only for the Caribbean region, but it also serves as an opportunity to showcase to the world, the sheer talent that is prevalent in the women’s game.  I am also excited that it offers the game’s emerging stars an opportunity to challenge themselves alongside the best in the business, within the landscape of a globally renowned T20 tournament such as the CPL“
