Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars squads named for series against West Indies

The Cricket Australia (CA) Women’s National Selection Panel (WNSP) today announced two 13-player squads for the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars’ upcoming series of One-Day Internationals and WT20 Internationals against the West Indies next month.

The team will play four WT20 INTL and four ODI matches in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and Bowral from 2 November.

The final three WT20 INTL matches will be played as double-headers with the men’s KFC T20 INTL matches and will be broadcast live on Nine Network’s Channel GEM. The first WT20 INTL will be played as a double-header with the men’s CA XI v South Africa tour match and, along with the four ODI matches, will be live streamed on cricket.com.au.

The West Indies have just completed a comprehensive defeat of New Zealand and currently share top position with the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars in the ICC Women's International Championship.

Commenting on the squads, WNSP Chair Julie Savage said: “We are expecting a fierce contest for the top spot on the ladder and have selected a squad that is well equipped to prevail.”

“We have selected a strong squad with a number of players who were a part of the team that completed a clean-sweep of the WT20 INTL series against Pakistan in August.

“Ellyse Perry returns to the pace bowling attack after playing the Pakistan series in a batting role while she recovered from a leg injury. Kristen Beams also joins the squad in place of her Victorian teammate, pace bowler Julie Hunter.

“Our batting line-up has been in excellent form during the first rounds of the WT20 domestic competition, which bodes well for an exciting contest against the explosive West Indies batting line-up.


“We have made one change to the ODI squad that defeated Pakistan 4-0 in August, with Elyse Villani added to provide another powerful batting option.


“As with the T20 squad, the return of Ellyse Perry as our strike bowler has resulted in Megan Schutt missing out.


“Fast bowler Holly Ferling is progressing well in her recovery from her back injury and is expected to return to competitive cricket shortly but will not take part in this series.”

Zimbabwe should whitewash West Indies.

But knowing our luck, Darren Sammy and Chris Gayle will get selected again and Chanderpaul will come out of retirement and theyll score double centuries each.
