PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):
A 13-member squad was named yesterday to represent the West Indies women against England women in a three-match one-day international (ODI) series which begins here today.
The squad includes four additions in wicketkeeper/batter Kycia Knight, openers Natasha McLean and June Ogle and fast bowler Subrina Munroe for the matches at Queen's Park Oval.
The West Indies women defeated England on Saturday to win a Tri-nation series also involving New Zealand at Kensington Oval, after defeating New Zealand in an ODI series in Jamaica.
"We're heading over to Trinidad, and we want to continue the winning momentum. We played well to beat New Zealand in Jamaica in the ODIs at Sabina Park," said captain Merissa Aguilleira.
"We were on top of our game to beat New Zealand and England in the T20s in Barbados and we will look to do the same at Queen's Park Oval. The selectors have recalled a few players to the squad and they will fit in well. We will look to maintain our excellent record on home turf."
The second and third ODIs between West Indies and England will be played on Friday and Sunday.
SQUAD: Merissa Aguilleira (captain), Shemaine Campbelle, Shanel Daley, Deandra Dottin, Kycia Knight, Kyshona Knight, Natasha McLean, Anisa Mohammed, Subrina Munroe, June Ogle, Shaquana Quintyne, Tremayne Smartt and Stafanie Taylor.
