Stafanie Taylor

Stafanie Roxann Taylor is a Jamaican Cricketer and a captain of Windies Women Cricket Team. She started her first cricket tour at the age of 10 years. Taylor was a talented footballer but later realized, she’ll get more opportunities to travel the world with a carrier in cricket than in football. West Indies women had been the stepping stone of her life when she emerged into the international game.

Stafanie has represented the Windies team over 80 times since she debuted in ODI in 2008. She started her carrier in the West Indies team at the age of 17 and immediately became a key member of the team. She became the first player to achieve the number one (male or female) ODI ranking in both batting and bowling simultaneously in the year 2013.
