The West Indies has another Chris Gayle in Deandra Dottin, a right-handed batter and right-arm fast bowler.

Like Chris Gayle, this young Barbadian cricketer seems to be gifted and talented in hitting sixes all over the ground. She is indeed a power hitter, and a fast scorer, too. When Dottin gets going, she can be very dangerous; and she is capable of destroying her opponents single-handedly, by piling up runs for the Windies and putting them in a good position, as she has already done sometimes.

The West Indies have two batting stars: Captain Stafanie Taylor and the hard-hitting Deandra Dottin. When these two are in form, it can spell trouble for their rivals. They are exciting players. Saying that, I am not leaving out the rest of players, because they all are doing their part too.

There is no doubt that Dottin is dangerous, and her batting is a pleasure to watch. I watched her batting at Sabina Park some years ago, against the New Zealand women, and I have put her down in my book as another batting hero for the West Indies. I am expecting great things from her in the upcoming matches.
