Women’s cricket WI Women recall Munroe for Australia series

Medium-pacer Subrina Munroe has been recalled to the West Indies Women’s squad for their tour to Australia, which starts later this month. Munroe’s inclusion is the only change to the squad from the one that played the Twenty20 series against New Zealand Women in the West Indies last month.

Munroe last played an ODI in February 2014 but was a part of the squad for the World T20. She has played 20 ODIs and 19 T20Is so far and had recently taken three wickets in four games for Guyana Women during the West Indies Cricket Board Regional Women’s Championship.

West Indies are scheduled to play four T20s and as many ODIs against Australia Women from November 2 and will begin their tour with two practice matches on October 21 and 28. The first three games of the ODI series will also be counted as a part of the ICC Women’s Championship and, with West Indies and Australia on six points at the top of the table, the teams will be aiming to build a lead.

The T20 series will be played between November 2 and 9 in Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne, followed by the first two ODIs in Hurstville on November 11 and 13. The last two ODIs will be played in Bowral on November 16 and 18.

West Indies Women’s squad: Merissa Aguilleira (capt), Stafanie Taylor, Shemaine Campbelle, Shamilia Connell, Britney Cooper, Shanel Daley, Deandra Dottin, Kycia Knight, Hayley Matthews, Anisa Mohammed, Subrina Munroe, Shaquana Quintyne, Tremayne Smartt, Shakera Selman
