The skill level has improved tremendously and it is really is a joy to see where we are now and where we want to go.“This Mother and Daughters event as well as the Women’s World T20 are stepping stones. We want everyone to come out and support the ladies. Let women’s cricket be the catalyst for the rebirth of West Indies cricket.”He continued: “The next few weeks will be huge in the lives of so many people.
