The experienced duo of Stacy Ann King and Afy Fletcher, as well as rookie all-rounder Chinelle Henry have been recalled to the West Indies Women’s cricket squad for a tour of Sri Lanka later this month.
King, Fletcher and Henry have been named in the 14-member squad, which is currently in a training camp Colombo, Sri Lanka.
King, a 31-year-old left-handed batsman and left-arm medium fast bowler, has made 53 One-day International and 61 Twenty20 International appearances for the West Indies Women. Her previous international appearance was at the Women’s World Twenty20 semi-final against World champions Australia last year in Bangladesh.
Fletcher, 28, will be making her first trip with the women’s side in six years. She has appeared in 13 ODIs and two Twenty20s between 2008 and 2009, with her last international, a Super Six match against England Women in the 2009 ICC Women’s World Cup in Australia.
Henry, 19, has appeared in two ODIs and four Twenty20s between October 2013 and February last year before losing her place on the side.
The tour comprises three Twenty20 Internationals and four ODIs, the last three of which will count towards the ICC Women’s Championship.
The ICC Women’s Championship is a multi-year, bilateral competition between the top eight international women’s sides that will lead to qualification for the 2017 ICC World Cup to be hosted by the England & Wales Cricket Board.
