Stacy-Ann King

Born on July 17th 1983 in Trinidad, former ODI and T20I player for West Indies, now commentator, Stacy-Ann Camille-Ann King.

A left-hand batter and left-arm medium pace bowler is the most recent player to have opened the batting and the bowling in an ODI fixture, a feat she performed twice in 2019. Her ODI debut began eleven years earlier on June 24th 2008 against Ireland at Dublin. Joining her on debut, Stafanie Taylor, Chedean Nation, Danielle Small and Deandra Dottin.

Three days later Stacy-Ann and the entire West Indies team would make their T20 International debut, also against Ireland in Dublin.

Stacy-Ann would go on to play in 75 ODI matches for the West Indies, including the 2009 World Cup. She scored 885 runs in her career with a top score of 70. With ball she took 22 wickets with a best of 3-33.

Over the same eleven years Stacy-Ann played in 86 T20 Internationals giving a total of 161 performances for West Indies. She scored 989 runs with three half centuries and a top score of 81. She took 18 wickets with a best of 3-19. During her career she appeared in five T20 World Cups, the last of which the most glorious of all, victory over Australia to win the trophy in 2016.

Stacy-Ann has slipped seamlessly into a commentary role and speaks with measured authority.
