The Caribbean side clinched their first ever World title last year when they won the T20 World Cup in India and will be one of the favourites in the 50-over version which runs from June 24 to July 23 in England.

Taylor said while winning the T20 World Cup had brought them to the fore, a different approach was now needed for the 50-over campaign.

“Winning the T20 World Cup would have boosted [our respect],” the Jamaican told reporters before the squad left for England yesterday.

“We know that it’s not the T20 World Cup, it’s a different competition – 50 overs – where it is going to take time, not just 20 overs so I think we just need to apply ourselves.

“I’m very happy where we are at so hopefully we can build on that going into the camp [in England].”

Beaten finalists in the last Cricket World Cup four years ago, the Windies Women face a tough road to the title this time around.
