King hoping for West Indies success at the ICC Women’s World Twenty20

23 March 2016

With the group stages well and truly underway at the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 in India, Adelaide Strikers WBBL all-rounder Stacy-Ann King has helped the West Indies lead Group B in what looms as an exciting chase for semi-final spot.

King has made her mark on the tournament with a cameo 12 against Pakistan and an unbeaten 20 (off 15 balls) against Bangladesh and if she can continue to score with the power, will go a long way in helping the West Indies post sizeable targets in their remaining matches.

With two wins from their first two games, the West Indies’ fate lays firmly in their own hands, with games against India and England to come.

King joins Strikers teammates, Sophie Devine (New Zealand), Sarah Taylor (England), Megan Schutt and Sarah Coyte (Australia) at this year’s World Cup, making it a tournament to watch for all Strikers fans.

Devine’s New Zealand have set themselves up well for a chance at topping Group A after winning their first three pool games. The latest victory a crushing six-wicket win over fierce trans-Tasman and group rivals Australia.

Taylor’s England have won their opening two group games, the latest a hard fought win against group rivals India by two wickets. With games the West Indies and Pakistan to come, Taylor will be hoping for her sides impressive form can continue.

Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars Schutt and Coyte are now looking up the ladder at the Silvers Ferns as they currently trail the group leaders by four points. Australia needs to win their final two games against Sri Lanka and Ireland for a chance to win a fourth consecutive Women’s World T20 title.
