Jamaican World Cup squad revealed

IN the continuation of a big week of World Cup squad reveals, Jamaica is the next country to reveal their squad that is heading to Cape Town next month.

Like South Africa, the Jamaicans have revealed their squad of 15, but have not distinguished who the three travelling reserves are.

There is a lot of discussion about this Jamaican squad that will be looking to build on last year’s Commonwealth Games result and go one better at the World Cup.

Led by stalwarts Jhaniele Fowler and Shamera Sterling, there are a few new faces in the squad that were not in the squad that faced the English Roses back in January.

The biggest of those names is arguably Romelda Aiken-George, who has returned after a year out of the game and is performing strongly for the NSW Swifts and has been rewarded. She joins the likes of fellow Suncorp Super Netball shooters Fowler and Shimona Nelson in a shooting group that largely remains the same from the last few squads.

Adean Thomas also returns to the squad after not going to England earlier this year. She is the only inclusion to a midcourt group alongside the likes of Nicole Dixon-Rochester and Crystal Plummer.

Kimone Shaw is the only inclusion into the defensive group, but with four of the most feared defenders in the Suncorp Super Netball competition ahead of her, she may find herself as the travelling reserve. Sterling, Latanya Wilson, Kadie-Ann Dehaney and Jodi-Ann Ward are all having strong seasons in Australia and will be looking to take that form into the World Cup.
