Region proud of women despite WC disappointment: Cameron

Glum faces in the West Indies women’s camp as the team slid to defeat in the first semi-final against Australia.

ST JOHN’S, Antigua, CMC – Cricket West Indies president, Dave Cameron, said West Indies women remained a source of pride for the region, despite their failure to successfully defend their ICC Twenty20 World Cup title.

West Indies played unbeaten in the preliminary round but were eliminated at the semi-final stage when they suffered a heavy 71-run defeat to eventual champions Australia.

“Despite the Windies Women’s loss in the semi-finals, we are extremely proud of the way the women displayed strength of character and were a joy to watch in the field for every single game,” Cameron said.

“From all the feedback I have received, the entire Caribbean is proud of the ladies.”

Australia captured their fourth title when they beat England by eight wickets in last Saturday’s final at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium here.
