Connell gets call for Twenty20s
ST JOHN'S, Antigua (CMC): Uncapped fast bowler Shamilia Connell has been called up to the West Indies Women's squad for their three-match Twenty20 series against New Zealand Women, starting in St Vincent on tomorrow..
The 22-year-old, who hails from Barbados is the only change to the 13-member squad that swept the Kiwis 4-0 in the One-Day International series which finished in St Kitts on Friday.
She replaces opener Natasha McLean, with Merissa Aguilleira again leading the squad.
Connell came to the attention of regional selectors during the Women's Regional One-Day Championship last month in Dominica when she snatched a six-wicket haul to bundle the hosts out for a paltry 52.
West Indies Women will play all three Twenty20s at Arnos Vale.
Merissa Aguilleira (captain), Stafanie Taylor (vice-captain), Shemaine Campbelle, Shamilia Connell, Britney Cooper, Shanel Daley, Deandra Dottin, Kycia Knight, Hayley Matthews, Anisa Mohammed, Shaquana Quintyne, Tremayne Smartt, Shakera Selman.
