The fifth highest ODI wicket-taker in women’s cricket with 146 wickets, Anisa Mohammed, has made a comeback in the West Indies Women’s team to play the three-match Colonial Medical Insurance One Day International (ODI) Series against Australia, starting on Thursday 5th September 2019 in Antigua.
Given the fact that they are on the back foot since a lot of their players are not a part of this series owning to injuries, the return of Anisa give them that little amount of experience that is needed when you face a team like Australia. And the selectors were aware of this, their comment on the selection makes it clear.
CWI’s Interim Chairman of Selectors Robert Haynes’ comment reads “We have included Anisa Mohammed and Kyshona Knight who have a lot of experience between them, which is required when playing against Australia, the top-ranked women’s team.”
With the return of Anisa in the squad, who played her last international match in February against Pakistan gives the Stafanie led team a bag full of experience in the bowling department.
Full Squad: Stafanie Taylor (C), Hayley Matthews (VC), Reniece Boyce, Afy Fletcher, Chinelle Henry, Shamilia Connell, Stacy Ann King, Natasha McLean, Kycia Knight, Kyshona Knight, Anisa Mohammed, Karishma Ramharack, Shabika Gajnabi.
Schedule: Australia vs West Indies
