Bio

Born and raised in Guyana, Candacy Atkins joins Team USA hoping to bring intensity and confidence to the squad. Throughout her entire interview she is laser-focused on getting to Scotland and helping Team USA make some noise in the tournament.

Candacy demonstrates how passionate she is about cricket in everything she does. She often reflects on how fortunate and grateful she is to have the sport in her life, and how supportive her family has been on this journey.

Having originally played cricket in Guyana, Candy immigrated to the United States with little intention of continuing to play the sport. To Candacy’s surprise, her reputation as an international player led coaches to seek her out to play cricket competitively. Candy brings a great deal of experience to the team having previously played on the international stage.
