Rookie fast bowler Kesrick Williams says variation will be a key part of his arsenal once he gets a chance to show his skills in the Twenty20 International series against Pakistan.

The uncapped 26-year-old, a late call-up to the West Indies squad for the three-match series, said while he had the ability to bowl at pace, it would be more important to use a combination of different deliveries especially in the shortest format.

Effective October 1, 2016, women’s cricketers on retainer from the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) will see an increase in their pay package. The number of women on retainer will also move from 11 to 15.

An agreement between the WICB and the West Indies Players Association (WIPA) will see increases in annual retainer fees, sponsorship payments, match fees and captains’ allowances. The estimated increase will cost the WICB just under US$600,000 for the upcoming year. The new compensation package will benefit an unlimited number of non-retained players.

The ECB has today announced a 15-strong England women’s touring party for the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series against the West Indies in Jamaica next month. The squad includes two uncapped players at this level: 17-year-old left-arm spinner, Sophie Ecclestone and right-arm seam bowler, Beth Langston.

Langston had previously been ruled-out of taking part in the three-week tour after breaking her left thumb during a training match earlier this month.  However, with her rehab programme progressing more quickly than anticipated, the 24-year-old is now targeting a return to action in the Caribbean.  It will be the first time that Langston has been a part of an England dressing room since making her Twenty20 International debut, also in the West Indies, three years ago.

Leg-spinner Samuel Badree has said the West Indies would be wary of an unpredictable Pakistan side, as they chase victory in the upcoming three-match Twenty20 International series.

He said Pakistan were a dangerous unit and they would have to play well if they were to top the hosts in the games which run September 23-27 in the United Arab Emirates.
