West Indies women to tour NZ

6:37 am on 17 August 2013

The New Zealand women's cricket team will host the West Indies in three one day internationals and five Twenty20s this summer.

The one dayers will be played in late February at Lincoln followed by the Twenty20s split between Invercargill and Queenstown.

The home series follows the White Ferns tour to the West Indies in October where they face the hosts in three one dayers, before England join the two sides for a Twenty20 Tri-Series.

Preparation for the tour is underway, with the 14 player squad currently in camp at Maroochydore in Queensland.
