ANTIGUA: The Selection Committee of Cricket West Indies (CWI) Women’s Team announced a 15-player squad for the forthcoming white-ball tour to Pakistan in April-May.

The West Indies team is set to land in Karachi on 14 April to participate in eight white-ball fixtures, including three ODIs, which form part of the ICC Women’s Championship 2022-25.

The three ODIs are scheduled to take place at the National Bank Stadium (NBS) in Karachi on 18, 21, and 23 April.

Following the ODI series, five T20Is will be contested at the same venue, commencing from 26 April.

The ODIs are slated to kick off at 3:30 pm PKT, while the first ball in the T20Is will be delivered at 7:30 pm PKT.

Right-arm medium pacer Kate Wilmott clinched her debut call-up to the national senior team following outstanding performances in domestic competitions.

Qiana Joseph and Chedean Nation secured their return to the squad with stellar showings in domestic tournaments after missing out on the previous tour to Australia in 2023. Ann Browne-John, the Lead Selector for West Indies Women’s Cricket, emphasized the significance of the upcoming white-ball series against Pakistan, marking the team’s return to international action after nearly six months.

“The upcoming series against Pakistan is of utmost importance for the team as they make their comeback to international competition after almost six months, with the last series being against Australia,” stated Browne-John.

“Besides the three ODIs, the team will benefit from much-needed T20 matches as they gear up for the upcoming T20 World Cup later this year,” she added.

Browne-John highlighted that the inclusion of experienced player Chedean Nation would bolster the team’s batting lineup.

“The return of experienced player Chedean Nation will fortify the batting order, and 19-year-old Fast Bowler Kate Wilmott will make her debut. The players have just concluded the regional tournament where several experienced players displayed encouraging performances, and we hope this momentum carries into the Pakistan series.”
