Sean bowler Cherry Ann Fraser has been ruled out of the forthcoming Twenty20 International Tri-nation Series against South Africa and India due to injury and has been replaced by Shanika Bruce, Cricket West Indies announced recently.
Bruce represented the West Indies Women’s ‘A’ Team in 2021 when Pakistan toured the Caribbean. She also played three Twenty20 Internationals for Barbados at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England last year.
Lead selector Ann Browne-John noted that Bruce had a successful regional tournament last year and was one of the top bowlers, “so, as a result, we believe she is right fit for a team at this time.”
“It’s unfortunate that Cherry Ann Fraser has been ruled out of the Tri-nation Series and ICC Women’s T20 World Cup due to injury. Fraser has shown improvement during the recent series against England and would have provided another fast-bowling option for the skipper,” she added.
The Tri-nation series will be played from Jan.19 – 30 and forms part of the preparations for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, which will also be played in South Africa.
