THe West Indies women’s cricket team will have a full camp in New Zealand ahead of their eight-match series next month.

 

The World Cup runners-up will arrive in New Zealand February 10 for a one-week camp as they prepare to face New Zealand in three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and five T20 Internationals, reports CMC.

 

The series will form part of the preparations for the ICC Women’s World T20 in Bangladesh in March and April.

 

“It is great for us that we will have this camp in New Zealand before we play the matches there,” said captain and wicket-keeper Merissa Aguilleira.

 

“This will be the first time for most of the players playing in New Zealand and we don’t know a lot about the foreign conditions, so it will be very useful to get there early and get acclimatised.”
