Adams said: “Congratulations to Stafanie from all at CWI, and indeed the wider Caribbean, on achieving this outstanding milestone in what is truly a remarkable cricket career. She has set the benchmark for women’s cricket and continues to demonstrate why she is rated as one of the greats of the game.
