(SNO) — West Indies left arm fast bowler Qiana Joseph will represent the Windward Islands in three upcoming competitions, one of which she will serve as captain.

The Corinth Secondary alumna joins four other Saint Lucian female cricketers who will play either an invitational tournament in Trinidad and Tobago, or the Cricket West Indies Women’s Super50 and T20 Blaze.

The annual Under-20 Invitational Tournament runs April 16-22, and Joseph will lead the Windwards team, which will also include allrounder Allyah Alfred, and left arm medium pacer Zaida James.

The 14-member squad includes five players from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and three each from Dominica and Grenada.

Immediately preceding the youth tournament will be the 2019 CWI Women’s Super50 and T20 Blaze, to be played in Guyana from March 16 to April 3.

The Windwards Ladies, under the captaincy of West Indies leg spinner Afy Fletcher of Grenada, will include Joseph, Nerissa Crafton, and Swayline William.

Two other Saint Lucians, Yasmine St Ange and Zaida James, also form part of the reserves.

The 14-member squad includes five Vincentians, five Grenadians, and a sole Dominican.

The Saint Lucian women were scheduled to leave the island on Thursday (March 7) for a six-day camp in Dominica before flying out to Guyana.
