Squads locked for ICC Women’s World T20 2018
ICC Women’s World T20 will commence from November 9 and the squads of all the participating teams are announced. South Africa Women’s may announce an addition of a player in the squad to replace off-spinner Raisibe Ntozakhe as she has been recently banned by ICC for illegal bowling action while Pakistan will announce their captain within the team.
Salma Khatun will lead the same outfit, which led to winning the Asia Cup and the qualifiers of Women’s World T20. The BCB has announced only two changes, Sharmin Sultana and Lily Rani were dropped from the T20 team while Lata Mondol, Ritu Moni and Sharmin Akter Supta were called for the national duty.
Australia included Jess Jonassen and Nicole Bolton in the squad because of their experience. England would be dealing with a vacant place of their leading player Sarah Taylor; she quit his name from the team after depression and mental issues.
Ireland called all their experience heads to the fore and named one of their most active and experienced team ahead of the tournament.
India will miss Jhulan Goswami in the marquee event, but Harmanpreet Kaur and Co. will be eyeing on the title.
Windies have called their previous championship winner Britney Cooper and Chinelle Henry to the team while Sri Lanka with their captain Chamari Athapaththu will be keeping an eye on the title as well.
