April 17th, 2009
NEW YORK, NY – The United States of America Cricket Association (USACA) today announced its squad for the ICC Americas 2009 Women’s Cricket Tournament scheduled for May 17-24 at the Broward County Regional Park in Lauderhill, Florida.
The fourteen (14) player squad includes Roselyn Emmanuel (Captain), Candacy Atkins (Vice Capt.), Debbie Martha Bally, Shirley Ann Bonaparte, Doris Francis, Devonie Colleen Hayles, Sandra Ibarra, Catherine Joy Jones, Malathi Priyanjani Joseph, Ivy Mahabir, Deowantie Lisa Persaud, Diana Richelieu, Sonakshi Sagar and Isoline Sutherland.
Former West Indies women’s cricket all-rounder Indomatie Goordial-John has been appointed coach, while New York Regional Women’s Cricket Coordinator Venelda Wallace will manage the squad.
According to USACA’s 2nd Vice President and Director of Cricket Operations Sheikh Manaf Mohamed, “…the squad is a blend of experienced players and some relative newcomers to the sport.” He added, “The USA is looking to use this tournament as a vehicle for attracting younger female cricketers to the sport, now making its international debut, here at home.”
USACA’s new CEO Don Lockerbie, while congratulating the ladies, he emphasized that, “The full complement of the team would represent the USA very well.”
The team was selected following a domestic Conference
tournament in Lauderhill, Florida, at the end of March, a tournament
that saw some of the ladies donning cricket gear for the very first
time in a competitive environment. Other nations participating in
the upcoming ICC Americas tournament are Argentina, Bermuda, Brazil,
Canada, and Trinidad & Tobago.
