The Selection Panel for Cricket West Indies (CWI) Women has announced the 15-member squad for the upcoming tour to Pakistan in April-May. The tour will feature an eight-match Series, including three T20 Internationals (T20Is) and three One Day Internationals (ODIs).

Kate Wilmott has earned her first call-up to the senior team, thanks to her impressive performances with right-arm medium pace in the recently concluded CG United Women’s Super50 Cup and T20 Blaze tournaments. Qiana Joseph and Chedean Nation, who also showcased strong performances, have been recalled to the team after missing out on the last tour to Australia in 2023.

“The upcoming series against is extremely important for the team as they return to international competition after almost six months, the last series being against Australia. Apart from the three ODI, the team will get some much-needed T20 matches as they prepare to participate in the T20 World Cup later this year,” Lead selector Ann Browne-John said.

“The return of experienced player Chedean Nation will strengthen the batting and 19-year-old Fast Bowler Kate Wilmott will be making her debut. The players have just completed the regional tournament where some of the experienced players had encouraging performances, and it is hoped this will continue into the Pakistan series,” she added

After the conclusion of the ODI Series, an exciting five-match T20I series is set to commence from 26 April to 3 May. This T20I series promises not only thrilling cricket moments for fans but also crucial competitive opportunities for both teams to refine their abilities and tactics before the upcoming ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. Scheduled after the Women’s CPL in Bangladesh in September, this World Cup holds significant importance.

The West Indies Women’s team will gather in Dubai starting 6 April for a week-long training camp, a vital part of their preparations for the upcoming tour of Pakistan.
