ST JOHN'S, Antigua – The selection panel of Cricket West Indies (CWI) today announced a 13-member Windies Women's squad for the three Twenty20 Internationals against Sri Lanka Women next week.

The games are scheduled for October 19, 21 and 22 at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.

According to a CWI release today there is only one change to the squad – Britney Cooper replaces compatriot Reniece Boyce.

“Britney was brought into the T20 squad, as she has shown in the past that she can be aggressive with the bat and increase the scoring rate when needed at times. She was part of our T20 World Cup-winning squad and played her part in that memorable victory,” said chairman of the CWI selection panel, Courtney Browne.

“Results from the ICC Women's Championship matches against Sri Lanka Women were encouraging and the teams need to build on the momentum going into the Twenty20 International series,” Browne added.
