Jamaican McLean recalled to West Indies Women
JAMAICAN NATASHA McLean will get another chance to don the West Indies colours after two years, as she has been named in a 17-member provisional squad to take on New Zealand Women in three one-day internationals (ODI) from September 16-22 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
According to lead selector Ann Browne-John, McLean's inclusion was on the back of good performances in the recently concluded Women's Sixty and Women's Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
"With a few senior players unavailable at this time, for different reasons, like the experienced Anisa Mohammed, Kycia Knight and recently retired Deandra Dottin, the selectors were still able to get a blend of senior and developing players including Under-19 player Jannillea Glasgow and returning players Natasha McLean and Sheneta Grimmond.
Ultimately, we believe that captain Hayley Matthews, in her first series, will have a promising squad of players to start building with," Browne-John said.
A match-day squad of 13 players will be selected ahead of each ODI, with matches slated for September 16, 18 and 22 starting at 8.30 am Jamaica time.
The T20 Internationals (T20Is) are scheduled for September 25-October 6. All T20Is will start at 12:30 p.m Jamaica time, other than the fourth on Tuesday, October 4, which will start at 9 a.m. Jamaica time.
SQUAD: Hayley Matthews (captain), Aaliyah Alleyne, Shemaine Campbelle, Shamilia Connell, Afy Fletcher, Cherry Ann Fraser, Shabika Gajnabi, Jannillea Glasgow, Sheneta Grimmond, Chinelle Henry, Kyshona Knight, Natasha McLean, Chedean Nation, Karishma Ramharack, Shakera Selman, Stafanie Taylor and Rashada Williams.
