CRICKET: Teenaged Jamaican in West Indies Women's squad for tri-series
Melton William's, Gleaner Writer
Teenaged Jamaican top order batter Chinelle Henry has been named in West Indies Women's squad for the Twenty20 tri-series against New Zealand and England in Barbados.
The tri-series begins on October 14.
However, while the 18-year-old Henry has been drafted into the Twenty20 squad, the selectors did not chose her for the three One-Day Internationals against New Zealand in Jamaica.
West Indies women will play the three-match One-Day International series against New Zealand before the tri-series.
Those matches will be played at Sabina Park on October 6, 8 and 10.
West Indies will also play a three-match One-Day International series against England in Trinidad after the Twenty20 tri-series, though that squad is yet to be named.
The One-Day International against England will be played on October 29, November 1 and 3.
Henry is one of three Jamaicans in the 13-member Twenty20 squad for the tri-series.
The other Jamaicans are Shanel Daley and Stafanie Taylor.
Trinidadian Merissa Aguilleira will captain the Twenty20 side. Left-armer Stacy-Ann King, also of Trinidad, gets a recall after a year-long hiatus.
The 13-member One-Day squad for the Jamaica leg of the New Zealand series features three Jamaicans. They are Daley, Taylor and Natasha McLean.
Aguilleira will also lead the One-Day team.
The One-Day squad is completed by Shemaine Campbelle, Deandra Dottin, Kycia Knight, Kyshona Knight, Anisa Mohammed, Subrina Munroe, Shaquana Quintyne, Tremayne Smartt and Shakera Selman.
