C rick et West Indies has named a 14-member squad to take on India Women in a five-match Twenty20 (T20) International Series to be played on Saturday and Sunday at the Daren 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. Shakera 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 Windies Women before the ICC Women's T20 World Cup in Australia starting in February 2020. These matches are the primary focus of India's tour of the West Indies as a vital part of the team's preparations for the ICC T20 World Cup.

Majority of the squad

Speeking 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 fire power 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.
