West Indies women to play in home tri-series.

A women’s triangular T20 series involving West Indies, England and New Zealand will be played in Barbados in October, the West Indies Cricket Board has announced.

“This Tri Series is an important component of our continued development programme for Women’s Cricket,” WICB cricket operations manager Roland Holder said.

“It will allow our Windies Women to compete in the two most prominent formats of women’s cricket against quality international sides.”

The series, which consists of seven T20 Internationals, will be played at the Kensington Oval between two One Day international Series scheduled for Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.

West Indies Women and New Zealand Women will contest three ODIs at Sabina Park in Jamaica before the triangular series, and afterwards West Indies Women will host three ODIs against England Women at the Queen’s Park Oval in T&T.

“It is somewhat of a coup that we were able to have such highly ranked sides as New Zealand Women and England Women tour simultaneously, and it is a rare opportunity outside of world tournaments for our team, which has been rising steadily, to test their skills against these two formidable sides,” Holder said.

“This is a very exciting series for us which will conclude our international cricket season in the Caribbean for 2013 and we look forward to creditable and, of course, winning performances from our regional side.”
