The Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Association has announced a 14-member squad for a limited-overs (series) tour of Barbados between May 19-25. The tour comprises three T20 matches as well as two 50-over games.
The team will be led by Reniece Boyce and also features Karishma Ramharack, who played an active role in guiding the West Indies to the semi-finals of the 2022 World Cup in New Zealand. The team also has Anna-Marie Pereira, who has been consistently training with the West Indies team. There are a lot of talks about Pereira's ability with the ball and the same will be on display during the tour.
The tour has been organised while taking the 2022 regional tournament in Guyana into consideration. So, that the players could get ample match practice leading into the tournament which is scheduled to happen in June this year.
Meanwhile, Barbados are going to be one of the sides taking part in the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England, between July 28 to August 8 and hence the tour will certainly bolster their preparations leading into the mega spectacle.
