West Indies first Women cricketers celebrate milestone
May 9 is a significant day in West Indies cricket history. On this day back in 1976 – 44 years ago – the West Indies women’s cricket team walked off the field after their very first Test match in the history of Women’s cricket.
“Today we salute those pioneers who paved the way for the development of the women’s game in the Caribbean,” Cricket West Indies said on its website.
The match was played over three-day and West Indies scored 282 in their only innings.
