Cricket South Africa (CSA) and Cricket West Indies (CWI) confirmed on Tuesday that the Momentum Proteas team will be travelling to West Indies for a white-ball series ahead of the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifiers later this year. The series will comprise eight matches, including three T20Is and five ODIs and will serve as the perfect opportunity for preparation for the Women’s Cricket World Cup set to take place in New Zealand next year.
The tour will commence with the T20I series, the first game of which will be held on August 31. Both the T20I and One-Day International series will take place at Sir Viv Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua. While the entire T20 segment will take place at Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground, only the final two ODIs will take place at the same venue. Three ODIs will take place at the Coolidge Cricket Ground.
The West Indies women are coming at the backdrop of a T20I and ODI victory over Pakistan in July. Momentum Proteas has also enjoyed a fair share of glorious moments in recent times.
“We are delighted to have more cricket on the horizon as this will be a vital part of our preparations for the ICC World Cup Qualifiers. We are at a crucial juncture as we prepare for this big event and again, we want to thank CWI for organizing this camp, the T20Is and the CG Insurance ODI Series to get the girls up to speed”Cricket West Indies Head Coach, Courtney Walsh
“We were fantastic against Pakistan last month and we want to bring that winning momentum into this series of matches as well. We are going in the right direction, with the way we want. There is a lot to play for and we will be up for the challenge”
