ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The Cricket West Indies (CWI) Women’s Selection Panel has announced the 13-member squad for the third and final CG United One Day International (ODI) against New Zealand Women to be played on Sunday, 25 September at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.
Right-arm pacer Cherry-Ann Fraser comes into the squad to replace Shamilia Connell. Fraser had an impressive 6ixty and Women’s Caribbean Premier League showing with her team, Guyana Amazon Warriors, taking four wickets in each tournament format.
Lead Selector for Women’s cricket, Ann Browne-John said: “The CG United ODI Series has been a return to play for the team since their last encounter would have been the World Cup in February to April. Although the team is in the rebuilding process, the first two matches turned out to have very close results, which augers well for the future. The captain, Hayley Matthews, led from the front with her bowling and batting in the second match. It is also the time to start exposing some of the younger players evident in the fact that Shabika Gajnabi was given the responsibility of batting at Number 3. Another young player, Cherry Ann Fraser has been included in the squad for the final ODI as the panel strives to continue player development and exposure to international cricket.”
The first two matches of the CG United ODI Series have been very close encounters. New Zealand won the first by five runs on the DLS Method and then took the second by two wickets in a nailbiter.
