Kyshona Knight joins twin in World Cup squad
Twenty-year old Kyshona Knight is the only uncapped player in West Indies' 15-member squad for the upcoming Women's World Cup in Mumbai. Kyshona will join her twin sister Kycia Knight in the team led by wicketkeeper-batsman Merissa Aguilleira.
"It is a great feeling to be selected in the West Indies team with my sister," Kyshona said. "This is a dream for both of us.
"I wanted to join her from the time she made the team last year and I'm pretty excited right now that our dream of playing together for the West Indies has been realised. Not many sisters, especially twins, play the same sport and achieve similar success."
West Indies are placed in Group A along with hosts India, Sri Lanka and three-time champions England. They will play the hosts in the opening match at the Wankhede Stadium on January 31.
West Indies squad: Merissa Aguilleira (capt and wk), Stafanie Taylor (vc), Shemaine Campbelle, Shanel Daley, Deandra Dottin, Kycia Knight, Anisa Mohammed, Subrina Munroe, Juliana Nero, Shaquana Quintyne, Shakera Selman, Tremayne Smartt, Kyshona Knight, Natasha McLean, June Ogle
