Fairbreak Invitational, Women 2023
The Barmy Army Women's team has consisted of the former veteran players of the West Indies women's team who have represented their country and other domestic teams. West Indies is known for producing power hitters both in men's and women's cricket. Thus this team is also no exception. Considering that the team is a very recent addition to the Fair Break Tournament and that they have participated in it for the very first time, it was a decent performance from their side. The women did a pretty good job in winning the third place. No matter how the season went for the team, it is just the beginning and they still have a long way to go and a lot of areas to unfold.
The team, the entire tournament, is designed to promote gender equality on a global stage using cricket as their stepping stone. Cricket is one of the many popular sports, and could reach a much larger audience. Establishing cricket as a unisex sport actually could make a huge difference in backward countries where women are still dominated. This led FairBreak to launch a cricket tournament, the first season of which was played in 2023 and was well-received by the majority.
The team is a beautiful mix of talent and experience as per their 2023 squad is concerned. The team comprises players like the skipper Heather Knight, Shemaine Campbelle, Laura Wolvaardt, Roberta Avery, Laura Cardoso, Deandra Dottin, Kavisha Egodage, Fatima Sana, Henriette Ishimwe, Rumana Ahmed, Iqra Sahar, Tara Norris, Rubina Chhetry, Ruchitha Venkatesh, and lastly Selina Solman.
The team owners and support staff of the team have been one of the main reasons behind the players of the team in their constant improvement in their cricketing skills. They missed the wins by close margins in the 2023 season but the owners did an impressive job in selecting the players with the best skills and talents. The precise details about the team owners could not be traced anywhere on the Internet. Any further information will be uploaded here regarding their owners.
