Barbadian all-rounder Deandra Jalisa Shakira Dottin is one of the leading cricketers in the West Indies Women’s team, having made her debut for the West Indies in 2008. Dottin has since played 124 T20Is, taking 62 wickets and scoring 2681 runs at an average of 25.93, featuring two hundreds; and 143 ODIs, taking 72 wickets and scoring 3727 runs at an average of 30.54, featuring three hundreds.
