West Indies Women lost their first warm-up match against Australia, with only one match left to go before the ICC Women’s World Cup officially begins.

Despite the fact that Australia defeated the West Indies Women by 90 runs, there were some positives coming out of the match.

West Indies Women's Assistant Coach Corey Collymore said,

“I think it was a good performance by the bowlers. Keeping a team like Australia who are probably ranked number 1 in the world to 50 odd.”

“I think we’re smart enough and we’ve discussed that Australia probably - I don’t want to say took the game a bit lightly but I think they were a bit cautious upfront.”

“We know they’re a dangerous side, we don’t want to take things for granted, but I thought it was a good runoff for the bowlers.

Coach Collymore is confident the team will do well in their upcoming matches.

“I think it will be a similar approach, but looking to improve on what we’ve done. I think we also realize it was a small ground, so again, the game against Australia was a good way to see where we’re at.”

West Indies Women will play their final warm-up match against India on Tuesday at Rangiora Oval before taking on home team New Zealand in the opening match of the tournament on March 4 in Tauranga.
