Squads named for CG United Women’s Super50 Cup and T20 Blaze tournaments

The best women’s cricketers in the West Indies have assembled today in St. Kitts for the CG United Super50 Cup and T20 Blaze tournaments to be played from 8 to 27 May. The six regional teams have announced their squads to compete in five rounds of 50-over matches in the CG United Super50 Cup and then five rounds of T20 cricket in the T20 Blaze.

Barbados are defending champions in the CG United Super50 Cup and Jamaica the defending champions of the T20 Blaze. 

Barbados and West Indies Women’s captain Hayley Matthews will miss the T20 Blaze tournament as she has been granted a recovery period after the CG United Super50 Cup as part of CWI’s player workload management. NaiJanni Cumberbatch, the 15-year-old right-handed batter, comes into the squad for the T20 Blaze. Jamaican all-rounder Chinelle Henry will miss both tournaments as she is on a return to play rehabilitation programme following her injury in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in February. 

The CG United Super50 Cup matches will be played at three venues – Warner Park, the Conaree Cricket Centre, and St. Paul’s Sports Complex. In each of the five rounds, all three matches will take place concurrently. First ball is 10am local time. Barbados start their title defence against Trinidad & Tobago Red Force Divas at Warner Park on Monday, 8 May.

Warner Park will host five rounds of the T20 Blaze in five full days of entertainment featuring three back-to-back matches from 20 to 25 May. On the first four days the first match start at 10am, followed by an afternoon match at 2:30 pm with the final match each day played under floodlights starting at 7pm. On the final day Saturday, 27 May all matches will start at 8am at Warner Park, Conaree, and St. Paul’s. Defending champions, Jamaica start their T20 Blaze campaign against the Leeward Islands.

CWI’s Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams said: “Our regional Women’s tournaments will be our focus over the upcoming period as we provide a window for our best female players to showcase their talent. Players and teams will hopefully put in strong performances across both formats to impress for selection to International, ‘A’ and Emerging Player squads.”

Fans can attend for free at any of the venues, with all matches streamed and free to watch LIVE on the Windies Cricket YouTube channel, along with live scorecards and ball-by-ball scoring on the Windiescricket.com live match centre.
