Kimmince back from injury for West Indies games

CRICKET: Warwick cricketer Delissa Kimmince took one wicket in her first game on the West Indies tour at the weekend.

Kimmince has played for Australian teams which have retained the Ashes twice in the past two years and was part of the T20 World Cup winning team earlier this year in the West India.

She was rested for the three 50-over a side games against the West Indies due to a knee injury. The Australians won the games by 178 runs, 151 runs and eight wickets.

There are three T20 games to be played against the West Indies and Kimmince took 1-20 off three overs in the first of the three games at the weekend. She had two catches dropped off her bowling.

The Australians scored 4-108 to the 9-106 from the West Indies. Australian captain Meg Lanning was player of the match with an unbeaten 54 as the Aussies won in the 19th over.

Her father Peter Kimmince said his daughter was really enjoying her cricket.

"There is a lot of cricket to be played in the next eight months," he said.

"They are aiming for a world record attendance at the women's T20 grand final in March at the Melbourne Cricket Ground."
