Among three Guyanese picked for home series
Twenty-six year old Berbician fast-bowling all-rounder Treymane Smart is set to make
her come-back to International cricket against Sri Lanka on their tour to the West Indies from April 25.
Smart who played the first of her 15 ODIs in October 2009 was suspended by the ICC from all cricket and cricket-related activities for five months after being found guilty of violating an anti-doping rule after written and oral legal submissions as well as testimony from Smartt, who plead guilty.
A random urine sample collected in September last year, which was tested at a laboratory accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), was found to contain a prohibited substance called Furosemide.
The tribunal accepted that the substance wasn’t used to enhance performance or mask the use of another performance-enhancing drug, “but that she had failed to satisfy the high levels of personal responsibility implicit upon her as an international cricketer subject to anti-doping rules.” Smart, who also played 12 T/20 Internationals, used the drug for the swelling of her knee.
The hard-working and talented all-rounder scored 24 and had 0-16 when she last represented Guyana last August in the Regional Women’s tournament in Barbados and returned to club cricket two weeks ago with a three-wicket haul for Memorex Bermine at the first division level.
Smart expressed delight on being recalled and said she was confident of the West Indies ladies continuing their good run and making a meaningful contribution herself.
Shemaine Campbell and Subrina Munroe, both Berbicians, are the other Guyanese in the Caribbean side, while 19-year-old Trinidadian all-rounder Amanda Samaroo, makes her return to the regional side for the first time in three years.
Three players from recent matches are unavailable – Britney Cooper has an injured finger and will miss the series, while wicketkeeper/batsman Kycia Knight and leg-spinner Shaquana Quintyne are unavailable due to exams in Barbados.
Seventeen year-old Jamaican Wicketkeeper/ Batter Natasha McLean is the only new comer in the 14-member squad which will again be led by Trinidadian Merissa Aguilleira.
Squad: Merissa Aguilleira (captain), Stafanie Taylor (vice-captain), Shemaine Campbell, Shanel Daley, Deandra Dottin, Pearl Etienne, Stacy-Ann King, Natasha McLean, Anisa Mohammed, Subrina Munroe, Juliana Nero, Amanda Samaroo, Shakera Selman, Tremayne Smartt
