Predictably, there were no West Indian women in the ICC Women’s Twenty20 World Cup 2020 Team of the recent tournament after the 2016 champions failed to make the semi-final.

The West Indies Women started with a seven-wicket win over Thailand before being beaten by Pakistan and then England. Their final game against South Africa was abandoned because of persistent rain.

But in those losses there were no individual performances of note, leaving the ICC selectors with the easy choice of leaving them out.

The selectors did have a tough time though, with five players from Australia’s victorious squad being named to the Team of the Tournament.

Captain Megan Schutt, who led Australia from the front with both bat and in the field to guide her country to a fifth Women’s Twenty20 World Cup title is also named on the team.
