I couldn’t even watch cricket break her heart, but WI allrounder Daley is trying to love the game again

In top form, few would argue that Shanel Daley, the all-rounder of West Indian women, was one of the region’s brightest talents and destined for great things.

In 70 One Day Internationals (ODIs), her total of 73 wickets puts her in third place for the West Indies, behind Stafanie Taylor (142), top wicket-taker Anisha Mohammed (151), but ahead of renowned all-rounder Deandre Dottin (69 ). If you look even closer, you can see that Daley got her total in far fewer games, with Taylor getting her total in 126, Mohammed in 122 and Dotin needing 117.

In 68 T20 internationals, the order is much the same: Daleys count of 72 leaves her behind Taylor (94) and Mohammed (111) but above Dottin (61). Again, Daley’s wicket-haul has gotten in fewer games.

With the bat, she has scored a total of 1,001 runs, which is 7th on the list, but in fewer matches than everyone else above her, with the exception of specialist batsman Haley Matthews.

However, things started to backfire for Daley when she sustained a serious knee injury in 2015 that left her out of competition for a year. She returned to the sport but never seemed to reach the same heights. After the teams’ disastrous performance at the 2017 World Cup 50-over in England and the loss of her retainer contract, Daley had had enough.

The World Cup in England was a tough tournament. Before that tournament, I had just got back, trying to recover from my knee injury and everything else that happened, Daley told The Commentators podcast.

It was a tough tour and I thought about it (leaving the sport) based on everything that happened the injury was one of the biggest things that made me take some time for myself, maybe it was the right time, maybe it was wrong time. It was based on how I felt mentally and emotionally about cricket, especially in the region, I felt like we were not going any further, she added.

With the injury, I was wondering what if this happened again, what I’m going to do. I felt like an outcast at times, even though my teammates supported me as best they could.

After some time off, Daley, who also spoke about her tough battle with depression, is actively looking to get back into the sport, both on and off the field. However, she is discouraged by the lack of opportunities for women, especially when it comes to the Jamaica Cricket Association.

At the end of the day, we represent our country. As a woman I personally do not feel appreciated by the board. When it comes to women, it’s always an excuse or something else.
