WI Women to clash with South Africa
St John’s, Antigua – The West Indies Women will host their South African counterparts for five One Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals in January 2013 to kick off the international season for the women.
Warner Park in St Kitts will host two ODIs on January 7th and 9th while Windsor Park in Dominica will host the other three ODI matches.
Two back-to-back Twenty20s will be played at the Beausejour Cricket Ground under lights on January 19th and 20th. Both matches will be broadcast live on ESPN throughout the Caribbean and in select markets across the globe.
The Women’s T20s will act as curtain raisers for the playoff and final of the Caribbean Twenty20.
“This series is part of the on-going preparations for the Women’s World Cup in February,” said WICB Project Officer for Women’s Cricket, Josina Luke.
“This week the ladies are finishing up a gruelling four week camp in Barbados and have been progressing nicely with their development. South Africa is a competitive team who will test the Windies Women just before they travel to Asia for the World Cup,” Luke added.
