Quintyne, Campbelle overlooked for Pakistan series

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC): No room has been found for all-rounders Shaquana Quintyne and Shemaine Campbelle in a 13-member West Indies Women’s squad announced on Saturday for the one-day international (ODI) series against Pakistan starting later this month. The 19-year-old Quintyne, who captained Barbados to the regional 50-overs tournament in August, is one of five players failing to make the final cut, along with Campbelle, Chedean Nation, Karishma Ramharack and Vanessa Watts. Selectors had called up 18 players to the ongoing camp in St Lucia, which began last month. A leg-spinner and a capable right-handed batter, Quintyne has taken 26 wickets in 29 ODIs and 31 wickets from 33 Twenty20s, but has not suited up for West Indies in nearly a year. During the regional tournament, however, she was good enough to average 46, while taking four wickets. The 22-year-old Campbelle, meanwhile, is a seasoned campaigner, having played 61 ODIs and 68 T20s, since making her debut six years ago. She has a century – 105 against Sri Lanka two years ago – and has taken 21 wickets with her medium pace. The squad, which is led by new captain Stafanie Taylor, includes former skipper Merissa Aguilleira along with twins, Kycia and Kyshona Knight. The players will remain in camp, which started earlier this month in St Lucia, before facing Pakistan in the first of four day/night ODIs next Friday at the Beausejour Cricket Stadium. West Indies will also take on the Pakistanis in three T20s in Grenada, starting October 29. SQUAD: Stafanie Taylor (captain), Shakera Selman (vice-captain), Merissa Aguilleira, Shamilia Connell, Britney Cooper, Deandra Dottin, Afy Fletcher, Stacy-Ann King, Kycia Knight, Kyshona Knight, Hayley Matthews, Anisa Mohammed, Tremayne Smartt.last_img
