What’s next for the Soca Warriors?
I suppose that the answer to that question is more complicated than losing a football match or even a regional tournament.
Merissa Aguilleira will lead a T&T Women’s cricket team in a tour of South Africa from April 3-19 filled with familiar faces and new blood. During this goodwill tournament, the team will play both 50-over and T20 versions of the game. Aguilleira recently captained the West Indies to the final of the Women’s World Cup and a T20 4-1 series win over Sri Lanka.
Maaad Rangers’ Alisa Mohammed, twin sister of West Indies spin bowler Anisa Mohammed, and Technocrat’s Stacy Ann-King and Gaitri Seetahal will give the team some experience. Anisa is still recovering from an injury she sustained during the World Cup and could not be considered for selection. The squad will also welcome newcomers Chantal Emmanuel, Rackeal Bissoon, Samantha Bissoon and Selene O’Neil.
