Trinidad and Tobago’s Anisa Mohammed has been named vice-captain of the West India women’s team for the ODI series against South Africa.
Mohammed and his T&T colleague Karishma Ramharack have been called up in the 18-man squad for the South Africa series.
T&T’s Britney Cooper was ruled out of the series due to a medical issue, while wicketkeeper Reniece Boyce, who was on the practice team before the tour, failed to make the cut.
West Indies will arrive in South Africa on January 16th and play four ODIs against the Proteas Women between January 25th and February 7th.
West Indies will be headlined by Stafanie Taylor on the tour.
Leg spinner Afy Fletcher returns to the team, while the unrestricted trio of Kaysia Schultz, Mandy Mangru and Jannillea Glasgow have also been included.
“Exposing international cricket at this point will certainly give them the experience and playing time they need to develop and nurture their individual talents. Cricket West Indies Lead Selector Ann Browne-John said of the capless admission of the trio.
She added that the series comes at a good time for the team as they prepare for the 2022 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup.
“The squad has been preparing and building up over the past year despite the restrictions imposed by the pandemic and hopefully they can put it all together. The return of the experienced Afy Fletcher brings added variety to bowling, especially with the absence of Qiana Joseph through injury,” said Browne-John.
