Windies squad: Stafanie Taylor (c), Merissa Aguilleira (wk), Britney Cooper, Shamilia Connell, Deandra Dottin, Afy Fletcher, Kycia Knight, Kyshona Knight, Hayley Matthews, Anisa Mohammed, Chedean Nation, Akeira Peters, Shakera Selman.
T20I champions Windies play their first T20I against Sri Lanka on October 19, followed by back-to-back matches on October 21 and 22. All three games will be held at the Stanford Cricket Ground in Coolidge, Antigua.
Britney Cooper, the 28-year-old right handed batter from Trinidad, has been included in the Windies Women’s squad for the upcoming three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka. Her inclusion, in place of Reniece Boyce, was the only change to the squad that recently clinched a 3-0 ODI series victory against Sri Lanka to help Windies make a positive start towards the ICC Women’s Championship.
Results from the ICC Women’s Championship matches against Sri Lanka women were encouraging and the team needs to build on the momentum going into the Twenty20 International series. Britney was brought into the T20 squad, as she has shown in the past that she can be aggressive with the bat and increase the scoring rate when needed at times.
