The West Indies and South Africa women’s teams will compete in a three-match T20I series beside a five-match ODI series, starting August 31 in Antigua.
The series will form an important part of the preparations for the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifiers that will help West Indies secure a berth in the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup, scheduled to be held in New Zealand in 2022.
West Indies will hold a high-performance training camp ahead of the series under head coach, Courtney Walsh.
Walshi has reckoned that the team is going in the right direction and is well prepared for the upcoming challenges.
“We are delighted to have more cricket on the horizon as this will be a vital part of our preparations for the ICC World Cup Qualifiers. We are at a crucial juncture as we prepare for this big event and again, we want to thank CWI (Cricket West Indies) for organising this camp, the T20Is and the CG Insurance ODI series to get the girls up to speed,” Walsh said.
“We were fantastic against Pakistan last month and we want to bring that winning momentum into this series of matches as well. We are going in the right direction, with the way we want. There is a lot to play for and we will be up for the challenge,” he added.
