West Indies Women’s Squad Announced For Ireland T20I Series

Cricket West Indies (CWI) selection panel has announced the 14-member squad for the upcoming T20 International (T20I) Series against Ireland Women at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground. 

The squad includes three Rising Stars Women’s Under 19 players – Zaida James, Ashmini Munisar, and Djenaba Joseph. West Indies will enter the T20I Series on a high, having clinched the CG United ODI Series 2-0, with one match being a no result due to rain.

CWI Lead selector Mrs. Ann Browne-John said

“The selection panel decided to retain the players who completed the ODI series. These players have shown form and performance which enabled the team to secure a series win, which the team has been striving for in recent times. As we continue the rebuilding, we believe we have found a competent balance in mix of senior players and the younger players selected. It is in keeping with our ethos of preparing the next batch of West Indies women’s players, by combining the experienced and the newly capped players.”

Match tickets are available online from the Windies Tickets service, presented by Mastercard – Tickets.windiescricket.com – at a discounted price of US$6/EC$16 (USS3/EC$7.50 children and seniors) with tickets available on the day at the box office at a price of US$7.50/EC$20 (US$3.75/EC$10 for children and seniors).
