Britney Cooper replaces compatriot Reniece Boyce

ST JOHNS — Britney Cooper is set to make her return to the international stage when West Indies Women face Sri Lanka Women in three Twenty20 Internationals this week.

Cricket West Indies announced yesterday a 13-member squad for the matches at the Coolidge Cricket Ground, adjacent to the V.C. Bird International Airport, bringing Cooper in to replace her compatriot Reniece Boyce.

The series comes on the heels of the Windies Women sweeping the three ICC Women’s Championship matches against the Sri Lankans played over the last week at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in south Trinidad.

“Results from the ICC Women’s Championship matches against Sri Lanka Women were encouraging and the team needs to build on the momentum going into the Twenty20 International series,” said Chairman of the CWI Selection Panel, Courtney Browne, in a media release.

“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.” (CMC)
