Deandra Dottin, West Indies all-rounder, returned to the team as the Cricket West Indies (CWI) selection panel on Saturday (January 4) named her for a training camp ahead of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020.
Dottin, who was nursing a shoulder surgery followed by a lengthy rehabilitation period, has fully recovered.
“Deandra Dottin seemed to return right where she left off before her injury and had remarkable performances from the first match,” Ann Browne-John, CWI’s Women’s and Girls Head Selector, said.
Meanwhile, West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor, who missed T20I series against India last November, will also be returning along with Shamilia Connell and Shakera Selman.
“Shamilia Connell and Shakera Selman are also returning from injury and the panel hopes that by the time the final selection is to be made for the World Cup, all players will be fit and ready,” she added.
“The panel has selected a squad showing a mix of youth and experience in preparation for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. The recently concluded Women’s Franchise Tournament in Trinidad also gave the panel an opportunity to view the players in a T20 setting just prior to the World Cup.”
The pre-World Cup camp will take place from January 6 to 25 in Antigua and the final squad for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 will be selected based on it. The pinnacle event is scheduled to run from February 21 to March 8.
Training camp squad: Stafanie Taylor, Deandra Dottin, Shamilia Connell, Hayley Matthews, Aaliyah Alleyne, Shakera Selman, Sheneta Grimmond, Kaysia Schultz, Shabika Gajnabi, Cherry Ann Fraser, Shemaine Campbelle, Chinelle Henry, Natasha McLean, Chedean Nation, Shawnisha Hector, Anisa Mohammed, Lee Ann Kirby, Karishma Ramharack, Caneisha Isaac, Britney Cooper and Afy Fletcher
