Stafanie Taylor admitted that it was the West Indies failure to keep the run-rate up in the middle overs that proved costly during ICC Women’s World Cup 2017. We didn t get the batting right in the middle. A good platform was set but in the middle we fell down and were really short where we didn t rotate the strike enough, she said. We have the batters to do it but I think it s up to the batters to take more responsibility in their actions. It was crucial to get the scoreboard ticking because we know how this pitch plays. We had to get a total of 270 to be competitive.
