ST JOHN’S, Antigua- Cricket West Indies announces the fifteen (15) players selected for the West Indies Women’s Team to participate in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia from February 21- March 8.

The team will be led by Stafanie Taylor and sees the return of Deandra Dottin to international cricket after eight months out of the squad following corrective surgery and rehabilitation. These two experienced all-rounders will be at the forefront of a hungry West Indies team seeking a second T20 World Cup title.

In front of sold out crowds at home in the Caribbean in 2018, the West Indies Women reached the semi-final stage where they lost to eventual champions Australia and now they will be looking to go further by reaching the final and winning the title again.

Skerritt: Bravo’s world class reputation makes WI stronger

Wed, Jan 22, '20



PRESIDENT of Cricket West Indies (CWI) Ricky Skerritt said he was entertained by Dwayne Bravo in the T20 International series against Ireland, saying his reputation and his record will make the West Indies a stronger team.

Bravo made a return to the West Indies team last week, in a three-match T20 series against Ireland that ended on Sunday. The series ended 1-1 after the second match was abandoned because of rain.

Bravo, who last played for West Indies in 2016, made an immediate impact grabbing five wickets in the series at a low economy rate of 6.44. Bravo retired from international cricket in October 2018, but last December said he was willing to play T20 cricket because of the changes in West Indies cricket, including Skerritt, who was elected president in March 2019.

Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo picked up three wickets each before Lendl Simmons' scintillating knock made short work of their 139 chase as West Indies romped home by nine wickets against Ireland to finish the three-match series 1-1.

After being asked to bat, Paul Stirling and Kevin O'Brien gave Ireland another breezy start and took them to 50 in just 3.2 overs but just like in the second T20I, Pollard pegged them back with his variations. Bravo, too, joined in as Ireland were all out for 138 in 19.1 overs.

Simmons attacked right from the start, hitting ten sixes and five fours in his unbeaten 40-ball 91 and powered West Indies home with nine overs to spare.
