There will be no dearth of experience in various squads during the upcoming ICC Women’s World T20 2018 with 19 players gearing up for their sixth tournament in the West Indies from 9-24 November.
The ICC today confirmed all the squads for the ICC Women’s World T20 2018, with four players each from South Africa and the West Indies, three from Sri Lanka, two each from India, New Zealand and Pakistan and one each from Australia and England in the list of players not to miss a single edition of the tournament.
West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor is among those turning out for the sixth time and is most enthusiastic at the prospect of playing in front of home crowds in what is the first stand-alone edition after it was held along with the men’s event the previous five times.
West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor: “Leading the West Indies in the ICC Women’s World T20 2018 is both an honour and challenge for me. It will obviously be a great feeling to be in the prestigious role at home but one has to also live up to expectations since we won the tournament in India last time.
“We have a fine squad and several potential match winners but we have to be at our best in each and every match. The announcement of the squad makes you realise that the tournament is now almost upon us. The other squads too are very impressive and this promises to be a highly competitive tournament.”
