Four uncapped players in West Indies Women's squad to ICC Women's World Cup
Published on May 9, 2017Email To Friend    Print Version

ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The Selection Panel of the West Indies Cricket Board has named a 15-member squad for the ICC Women’s World Cup from June 24 to July 23 in England.

Making their maiden trip with the squad are: Reniece Boyce, a 19-year-old wicketkeeper/batsman from regional champions Trinidad and Tobago; Quiana Joseph, a 16-year-old fast bowler from St Lucia; Akeira Peters, a 23-year-old left-handed all-rounder from Grenada; and Felicia Walters, a 25-year-old opening batsman and part-time spin bowler, also from Trinidad and Tobago.

On the composition of the squad, chairman of the Selection Panel, Courtney Browne, said: “The team is composed of a mixture of youth and experience. Performances in this year’s Women’s Regional Super50 Tournament along with the form of incumbent players over the last few international tours were taken into consideration.”

On the inclusion of four uncapped players in the squad, he said: “The panel felt that we have enough experience in the side and that all four players bring a specific skill-set to the team. It should also be noted that all four players are products of our last training camp for emerging women’s players held last year. We also feel at this time that these players, although not as experienced, have shown improvement and can add value to our squad. We would encourage those that missed out to continue working and improving their skills, so that they can be considered for future tours.”

On the return of left-handed all-rounder Shanel Daley, Browne said: “Shanel’s ability as a player has never been in question. She however, had some injury issues over the last few years. Those issues are now under control and our medical personnel, as well as Oba Gulston, the physiotherapist for the women’s team, will continue to monitor and manage her.”

Browne also confirmed that all-rounder Shaquana Quintyne was not considered for selection, due to injury.
