West Indies women’s captain Merissa Aguilleira joined her male counterpart Darren Sammy in dreaming of a ‘Windies double’ at the upcoming ICC World T20 tournament. 

Speaking to reporters at the open media session, the inspirational wicket-keeper said her team is looking to take it “to the next level” and better their semi-final places in 2010 and 2012.

“Darren Sammy said he is dreaming of a ‘Windies double’ and that’s great. We always keep in contact with the men’s team and they always offer us their support. It is great that they have faith in us to come here and deliver and it would be magnificent for both West Indies teams to lift the cups on April 6,” Aguilleira told WICB Media.

“Our motto for this tournament is ‘moving in faith’. We didn’t have a good time on the recent tour of New Zealand so it is time now for us to bounce back and show what we are made of. We would like to take the title and continue to make the people of the Caribbean proud.”

Aguilleira took over as West Indies captain in 2009 and has led a revival in West Indies women’s cricket. She guided the team to the ICC World T20 semi-finals in 2010 in the Caribbean and 2012 in Sri Lanka. They also reached the finals of the 2013 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup last year in India.

The squad includes several world-class players including – Stafanie Taylor, the two-time ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year; Anisa Mohammed – one of the most successful wicket-takers in women’s cricket history; and Deandra Dottin – who holds the world record for the fastest century in a T20 match.

The Windies will have their first warm-up match against South Africa on Tuesday at the Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Prothistan in Savar. First ball is 1:30 pm (3:30 am Eastern Caribbean Time/2:30 am Jamaica Time).

“It is always good to start with a win. We came here to play eight matches and to win all eight matches, sotomorrow we will look to make a positive start against the South Africans. It is a very important match,” Aguilleira said.

“We won all our matches when we were here in Bangladesh back in 2011 at the ICC World Cup qualifiers and it is a matter of picking up where we left off. The conditions here are similar to those in the West Indies – with the hot sun and we know the pitches will favour our great spin attack.

“We will be looking to dominate in that department especially on the dry pitches we expect here in Bangladesh.”
