Cricket maidens get their chance

BOWLED OVER: Shaquana Quintyne

TWO TEENAGERS have been included in the West Indies’ women’s squad for their upcoming series against Pakistan.

Uncapped Shaquana Quintyne, a 15-year-old legspinner, and Kycia Knight, a 19-year-old wicketkeeper - have been included in the squad for the home one-day series against Pakistan that starts later this month.

The two players impressed for Barbados during the recently-completed WICB Women's Championships. Knight also plays football for Barbados. The other twelve players were all part of the squad for the tour of India early in the year.

The team will be led by Merissa Aguilleira, who was one of six women cricketers given a central contract by the West Indies Cricket Board last year.

Five other players – all-rounders Stafanie Taylor, Stacy-Ann King and Shanel Daley, batsman Deandra Dottin, and offspinner Anisa Mohammed - are also part of the squad for the four one-dayers against Pakistan. The first match is on August 28.

West Indies women's squad: Merissa Aguilleira (capt & wk), Shemaine Campbelle, Britney Cooper, Shanel Daley, Deandra Dottin, Pearl Etienne, Stacy-Ann King, Kycia Knight, Anisa Mohamed, Juliana Nero, Shaquana Quintyne, Shakera Selman, Tremayne Smartt, Stafanie Taylor
