    Hale up to the Dominican Women team, let me just encourage you ladies to be more patient when occupying the crease. Please apply patience, and discipline when batting. you don’t have to try hitting every ball for fours and sixes, ones and twos adds up. Finally, why is it that you ladies try hitting across the line? I believe the coach have lamented that you play each ball on its merit.
    I’m watch all the way from London, England on my PC. I wil not give up on your potential and the talent I believe we have. But as the coach said, ” don’t play the name or country but instead concentrate on your talent.” Play hard and positive my fellow Dominican cricketers. all the best.
