Throughout their sporting life, twin sisters Kycia and Kyshona Knight have followed the same path and with similar success.
After competing in almost every discipline while students at Springer Memorial School, they both represented Barbados in women’s football, track and field, and cricket.
However, they have made the biggest impact in cricket, becoming the first set of twins to not only represent the rapidly improving West Indies team, but also play together in the same side.
At the Barbados Cricket Association’s awards ceremony last Saturday night, Kycia was named 2012’s Most Outstanding Cricketer while Kyshona was voted Most Improved Cricketer.

On a highly successful tour, the Windies Women won the three-match 50-over series 2-1 and triumphed 4-1 in the five-match T20 rubber.
