After being defeated in the ODI series West Indies Women are all set to take the revenge in the upcoming T20I series against India. The 5-match series is set to begin on November 9.

Selman and Henry back to the squad

For the T20I battle, West Indies have included Shakera Selman in the squad. The 30-year-old was last featured in the team in June 2019. Then she was out of the ongoing ODI following an injury concern. It was mostly a precautionary measure to ensure her full availability for the T20 leg of during India’s tour. This series will mark the last of West Indies’ preparatory games for next year’s T20 World Cup in Australia and so Selman’s return looks more meaningful.

All-rounder Chinelle Henry, who suffered a concussion in the first ODI and missed next two matches, will be playing the T20Is now. Hayley Matthews has also been reinstated into the T20 squad after being suspended during the Australia series. The key member of the team’s triumph in World T20 2016 will be effective for the Windies.

The lead selector Ann Brown-John said that majority of the ODI series players have been retained. “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. Shakera Selman will bring her experience to this team to add more firepower to the bowling attack.”

West Indies look for revenge

Ann further added how this series will work as an important preparatory step for the team ahead of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. India is set to take on the hosts in the first two games in St Lucia on November 9 and 10. Then the final three fixtures will be held in Guyana on November 14, 17 and 20.
