DURBAN, South Africa (CMC):

Assistant coach Ezra Moseley, has said that West Indies Women need to improve heading into the Twenty20 series against South Africa, despite winning the just concluded one-day international series.

The Caribbean side beat the Proteas Women 2-1 in the three-match series in East London, but Moseley said that the performance was not up to their usual standards and pointed to the fielding as one area that needed enhancing.

"It's always good to win a series away from home although in my opinion, I don't think we played to the best of our ability," the former West Indies seamer said.

"I was satisfied because it's always nice to win, but we left Barbados saying we were going to look to win all three, but there were things that happened along the way. We had the captain (Stafanie Taylor) getting injured for the last game, and also the Knight sisters (Kyshona and Kycia) were out for most of the series and only Kyshona played.

"We were happy in the end to win 2-1, but there are certain areas we need to brush up on. Our fielding during the tournament was not up to good standards, so that is something we have to work on going forward into the T20s and also into the World Cup."

West Indies Women will turn their attention to the three-match T20 series, which bowls off at Kingsmead today.
