West Indies women’s squad for the World Cup, which will be played in England in June-July, features four new faces, including 16-year-old fast bowler Qiana Joseph. The three other newcomers include 19-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman Reniece Boyce, 23-year-old allrounder Akeira Peters and 25-year-old opening batsman Felicia Walters.

“The panel felt all four [new] players bring a specific skill-set to the team. It should also be noted that all four players are products of our last training camp for emerging women’s players held last year. We feel at this time that these players, although not as experienced, have shown improvement and can add value to our squad.”

Allrounder Shaquana Quintyne missed out with injury.

The Women’s World Cup runs from June 24 to July 23. West Indies play their first match on June 26, against Australia in Taunton.
