    A record of 18 West Indies women cricketers have been offered retainer contracts for the 2021-22 season, including T&T’s Anisa Mohammed.

    Mohammed will be joined by her T&T colleague Britney Cooper as a contracted player for the coming year.

    Contracts have also been offered for the first time to developing young players Kaysia Schultz and Qiana Joseph.

    CWI’s Lead Selector for Women’s and Girls’ cricket, Ann Browne-John, says, “There has been a lack of left-arm orthodox bowlers in the region, therefore Joseph and Schultz will hopefully help fill this void; with Joseph also bringing her left-hand batting skills which is also limited in the region.”

    The rest of the contracted players are: Aaliyah Alleyne, Shemaine Campbelle, Shamilia Connell, Deandra Dottin, Afy Fletcher, Cherry Ann Fraser, Shabika Gajnabi, Sheneta Grimmond, Shawnisha Hector, Chinelle Henry, Hayley Matthews, Chedean Nation, Shakera Selman, Stafanie Taylor.
