"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.
