When it comes to competing on the global stage, the two sides couldn’t be much further apart, he West Indies having won the tournament back in 2016 and Thailand making their debut in Australia.
Thailand may have already won hearts but Taylor insists her side won’t be playing nice in Perth and will instead be treating the debutants like any other opponent.
“We’ll be looking at it exactly like playing Australia or India,” said Taylor. “We’re taking it very seriously, for sure.
“We can’t think in the back of our minds that they know nothing about cricket because we haven’t played or seen much of them.
“We can’t assume we’re just going to hit them all around the park. If we adopted that plan, it would definitely backfire.
“The ball is round and anything could happen. We just need to keep a positive mindset and make sure we do everything right.
“It’s going to be a very special moment for Thailand. They’ll be wanting to showcase what women’s cricket is all about to their country.”
Taylor and the West Indies are familiar with all the thrills and spills of the Women’s T20 World Cup, having featured in all six editions so far, including hosting the 2018 tournament.
For Taylor, nothing will beat the experience of competing in the Caribbean but the West Indies skipper says the feeling in Australia is truly something special.
“The experience I had back home in the Caribbean in 2018 was like no other, but the hype around this tournament has been really great,” Taylor added.
“The highlight was when I looked on Twitter and saw two million T20 World Cup coins being circulated. I’d love to get one and I’ve been trying my very best!
“Hearing that more than 15,000 tickets have been sold for Friday’s opener in Sydney is fantastic and we’re all really excited.”
