WI women recall Chedean Nation after seven years

West Indies women have recalled Jamaican allrounder Chedean Nation after a gap of nearly seven years, for the ODIs and T20s in India next month. West Indies also recalled wicketkeeper-batsman Kycia Knight and medium-pacer Shakera Selman, both of whom were dropped for the home series against England.

Nation, 29, last played international cricket in November 2009, against England at home, in both ODIs and T20Is. She has played 12 ODIs and five T20Is, and was named in an 18-member West Indies training squad for a camp in September, before the England series.

Knight and Selman, who were part of the World T20 winning squad this year, had been dropped earlier this month and Anisa Mohammed had replaced Selman as the vice-captain. Even though Selman has returned, Mohammed continues to be the vice-captain for the India tour.

West Indies will play three T20Is after three ODIs, which will count towards the ICC Women’s Championship, in India. The first ODI will start on November 10 and the last T20I on November 22; all six matches will be played in Vijayawada.

West Indies are currently placed third with 22 points in the Women’s Championship table and India are sixth with 13 points.

Squad: Stafanie Taylor (capt.), Anisa Mohammed (vice-capt.), Merissa Aguilleira (wk), Shemaine Campbelle, Shamilia Connell, Britney Cooper, Deandra Dottin, Afy Fletcher, Kycia Knight, Hayley Matthews, Chedean Nation, Shaquana Quintyne, Shakera Selman, Tremayne Smartt.
