wicb_logoST JOHN’S, Antigua — The selection panel of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has announced a 15-member squad for the tour of South Africa from February 12 to March 10, and the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Tournament from March 15 to April 3 in India.

wicb_logo.jpg “The team has worked hard over the last year and the Selection Panel is very happy with the combination and the hard work that the players and management has put in,” said WICB selector Courtney Browne.

“They have made good progress and this squad has a lot of variety with a number of quality all-rounders that should serve the team well throughout the period they will be travelling.”

Browne said: “To highlight a few players – Stafanie Taylor has taken up the captaincy and has maintained her high performance standards and we are very happy to see this.

“Former captain Merissa Aguilleira made good progress during the past series against Pakistan Women and has added value to the team with her batting, and Hayley Matthews is a young, exciting prospect as an all-rounder, so we are quite satisfied with how the team has progressed over the last year.”

The 15-member squad, plus five reserve players, will be part of a training camp from January 28 to February 8 at the West Indies High Performance Centre in Barbados.

The five reserve players are: Leeann Kirby, Natasha McLean, Chedean Nation, Karishma Ramharack and Vanessa Watts.

In addition to the on-field training programme, the players will also undergo mental skills and media training before the touring party departs for South Africa on February 9 and 10.

On arrival in South Africa, they will continue their preparation from February 12 to 19 in Port Elizabeth with a one-week training camp that also includes a practice match against Eastern Province Women before playing the home team in three ICC Women’s Championship One-day and Twenty20 Internationals.

Following the trip to South Africa, the team flies directly to the ICC Women’s World Twenty20, where they have been drawn in Group “B”.

They will face Pakistan Women, Bangladesh Women, England Women and hosts India Women in the group stage, looking to reach the semi-finals which are carded on Wednesday, March 30, at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi and Thursday, March 31, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The Final is on Sunday, April 3 at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
