Connell has been the striking pacer for women in maroon.

From Barbados to the national team, she made her international debut in 2014. The journey for the pacer has been hard with impactful performances coming late.
Nonetheless, she came on the form with 2016 t20 world cup. Featuring in all the matches of the tournament, she established herself as the lead pacer for the side. She has often been compared to Windies veteran Joel Garner. Her tall stature and dangerously fast deliveries make her stand in line of the great West Indies tradition of pacers. The Australian pitches shall make her pacers more lethal and the fans will hope to see her shine in the much-awaited tournament.Couldn't fetch Batting stats data from link maybe link is in validCouldn't fetch Bowling stats data from link maybe link is in valid
