Hayley moves up to captain
EXCITING West Indies’ all-rounder Hayley Matthews has been elevated to the captaincy of the Barbados women’s team for the first time.
Matthews, who is the vice-captain of the West Indies side, takes over from the experienced seamer Shakera Selman for the upcoming Regional Women’s Super50 and Twenty20 Blaze tournaments in Guyana, from March 14 to April 4.
Apart from Matthews and Selman, there are four other West Indies players in the 14-member squad. They are explosive all-rounder Deandra Dottin, fiery fast bowler Shamilia Connell and the Knight twin sisters, Kycia and Kyshonna, who is making a return after undergoing leg surgery.
In an interview yesterday, head coach Ezra Moseley told NATIONSPORT that once the conditions in Guyana were good for cricket and the tournament was not affected by rain, he expected Barbados, with six Windies players, to emerge champions.
