Guyanese Mandy Mangru added to West Indies Women World Cup squad
The Event Technical Committee of the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 has approved Mandy Mangru as a replacement for Afy Fletcher in the West Indies squad.
Guyanese all-rounder Mangru, who has played a solitary ODI for the West Indies against South Africa in Johannesburg last month, is a temporary replacement for Fletcher, who has tested positive for COVID-19 and is undergoing a period of isolation.
A COVID replacement can be temporary, in that once the player has recovered, she would be eligible to return to the squad in position of the travelling reserve that replaced her.
The replacement of a player requires the approval of the Event Technical Committee before the replacement player can be officially added to the squad.
The Event Technical Committee of the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 comprises Chris Tetley, ICC Head of Events (Chair), Adrian Griffith, ICC Senior Manager Umpires and Referees (ICC Representative), Andrea Nelson, LOC CEO (Host Representative), Catherine Campbell (Host Representative), Sana Mir (Independent), Nasser Hussain (Independent).
West Indies are down to face Australia in the first semi-final of the World Cup on Tuesday evening from 18:00h in Wellington. (ICC)
