ST JOHN’S, Antigua — Cricket West Indies (CWI) today paid tribute to Vivalyn Latty-Scott, the outstanding West Indies allrounder and pioneer for women’s cricket in the Caribbean, who sadly passed away on Saturday.

She was a member of the first West Indies team to play a women’s Test match in 1976 against Australia and also served as an inspirational leader in the game in Jamaica. After retirement she was as a coach at all levels and also an umpire.

During her career as an off-spinner and right-handed batter, Latty-Scott played 10 Test matches and six One-Day Internationals. She was the first West Indian women to take five wickets in a Test innings – 5 for 48 off 41 overs on debut against the Australians in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
