All-rounder Shakera Selman returned to the West Indies' 14-member squad for the five-match Twenty20 series against India women beginning on Saturday in St Lucia.

Selman missed the recently-concluded ODI series as an injury precaution to ensure full fitness and availability for the T20I series, West Indies Cricket said in statement. The 30-year-old Selman has played 74 T20 Internationals for the Caribbean side and is primarily a medium-pacer.

The team will be led by Stafanie Taylor.

"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,"said Ann Browne-John, West Indies' women's selector.

"Following the 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," she added.

The first two matches of the series will be played at the Darren Sammy National Stadium in St. Lucia on November 9 and 10.

The teams will then travel to Guyana where the remaining three matches will be played on November 14, 17 and 20.

This is the final home T20 International series for the West Indies before the Women's T20 World Cup in Australia starting in February 2020.

Squad:

Stafanie Taylor (c), Anisa Mohammed (vc), Aaliyah Alleyne, Afy Fletcher, Shakera Selman, Hayley Matthews, Chedean Nation, Chinelle Henry, Stacey-Ann King, Kyshona Knight, Natasha McLean, Shabika Gajnabi, Shermaine Campbelle, Sheneta Grimmond.
