The West Indies women’s team will take on New Zealand in three ODIs and five T20Is in September and October in Antigua.
The matches will run from 16 September to 6 October and will be staged at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound.
West Indies women’s team head coach Courtney Walsh said he is pleased to challenge his team against the New Zealand team.
“They are a very competitive team, and this will make for a great series for our team. As it comes just after we’ve had the Women’s regional tournaments and the Women’s CPL, it will be a great fillip for our players,” Walsh said.
“We are currently holding another specialist camp including some new players, and after the Women’s CPL we will have a second camp in Antigua. In addition, the Lead Selector was with the West Indies U19 Women’s team for their series in Florida and have identified some exciting prospects to consider,” the former West Indies pacer added.
Walsh said that his team will have enough cricket before the New Zealand series, and he added that they will be trying to play a positive brand of cricket.
” We will also have an eye on the T20 World Cup around the corner. So, this will give the squad a chance to showcase all their skills, and also give us, the coaching staff, a chance to look at what depth we have,” Walsh said.
