Ann Browne-John, the ICC Americas Women's Cricket Representative, has been named to receive the Humming Bird Silver Medal for her long and devoted services to cricket in her native Trinidad and Tobago.

Browne-John skippered the West Indies women's team in the ICC Women's World Cup in 1993 and 1997 and coached the squad from 2002-2006. She was the first woman to serve on the Playing and Development Committee of the West Indies Cricket Board and has been instrumental in the development of Bermuda's women's cricket programme.

Reginald Pearman, President of Bermuda Cricket Board, said on its website: "On behalf of the BCB I would like to congratulate Ms. Browne-John on her achievement. She deserves the recognition for what she has achieved in the game, and is an excellent ambassador for women's cricket."

National Coach Gus Logie added: "Congratulations to Ms. Browne-John on her receiving the Humming Bird Silver Medal. Her continued good work will hopefully reward her with a Gold Medal in the future."
