ST JOHN’S – Stroke-maker Britney Cooper has been recalled for West Indies’ defence of their ICC Twenty20 Women’s World Cup cricket title, in a 15-member squad announced on Wednesday.

The experienced right-hander has been joined by 23-year-old batsman Chinelle Henry, who has returned following three years in the wilderness, while uncapped off-spinner Sheneta Grimmond keeps her place in the squad after being called up for the just-concluded five-match seriesagainst South Africa.

Selectors have dropped left-arm pacer Qiana Joseph and uncapped slow medium Karishma Ramharack, both of whom were includedfor the South Africa series but did not feature.

As expected, the squad retains the core of the championship side from 2016, with former captain Merissa Aguilleira, Deandra Dottin and Hayley Matthews headlining the unit, which will be led again by Stafanie Taylor. (CMC)
