Cricket West Indies (CWI) named a fourteen 14-member squad to take on India Women in a five-match T20 International Series to be played on November 9 and 10 at the Darren Sammy National Stadium in St Lucia and on November 14, 17 and 20 at the National Stadium in Guyana.

The team will be led by Stafanie Taylor and sees the return of Shakera Selman, who missed the Colonial Medical Insurance One-Day International (ODI) series as an injury precaution to ensure her full fitness and availability for the T20I series.

This is the final home international T20I series for the West Indies Women before the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia starting in February 2020.

Speaking on the selection of the squad, Lead Selector of the Women’s and Girls panel, Ann Browne-John said, “following the Colonial Medical Insurance ODI series, the majority of the squad has been retained. Chinelle Henry will hopefully be fit and ready to go again after being sidelined through concussion after the first ODI. Shakera Selman will bring her experience to this team to add more firepower to the bowling attack. The team has always had good performances in T20 matches and this series is vital preparation for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.”

West Indies T20I squad: Stafanie Taylor (capt), Anisa Mohammed, Aaliyah Alleyne, Afy Fletcher, Shakera Selman, Hayley Matthews, Chedean Nation, Chinelle Henry, Stacey-Ann King, Kyshona Knight, Natasha McLean, Shabika Gajnabi, Shemaine Campbelle, Sheneta Grimmond
