Grenada’s Affy Fletcher is included in an 18 member West Indies Women’s team to tour England from the end of this month.
The veteran Saint Andrew player played in the World Cup earlier this year in Australia and has become a prominent member of the playing eleven.
The Sandals West Indies Women’s Tour of England 2020 features five T20 Internationals (T20I) against England Women from September 21-30, at the Incora County Ground, Derby.
A release from Cricket West Indies says the touring party, who will all be tested for COVID-19 this week, are scheduled to fly to England on a private charter on August 30.
According to the release, the West Indies Women’s squad will live, train and play in a “bio-secure” environment during the four weeks of the tour, as part of the comprehensive medical and operations plans to ensure player and staff safety which will restrict movement in and out of the venues.
All players were given the option to decline selection for any COVID-19 related concern. Anisa Mohammed was the only potential selectee who declined the invitation to travel to England. CWI fully respects her decision to choose to do so.
Kaysia Schultz is the only uncapped player in the squad. Fourteen players of the touring party were part of the West Indies Women’s squad that participated at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia, earlier this year.
The tour will be broadcast here in the Caribbean across ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN Play platforms and in the UK on Sky Sports with a live simulcast on both the BBC and Sky Sports for the third T20I.
