Team Management Unit-Vasbert Drakes (Head Coach), Ann Browne-John (Team Operations Manager), Ezra Moseley (Assistant Coach), Oba Gulston (Physiotherapist), Hector Martinez-Charles (Fitness Trainer) and Trent Sargeant (Data Analyst).
The team has worked hard over the last year and the Selection Panel is very happy with the combination and the work that the players and management has put in,” said WICB selector Courtney Browne.
“They have made good progress and this squad has a lot of variety with a number of quality all-rounders that should serve the team well throughout the period they will be travelling.”
Browne said: “To highlight a few players – Stafanie Taylor has taken up the captaincy and has maintained her high performance standards and we are very happy to see this.
“Former captain Merissa Aguilleira made good progress during the past series against Pakistan Women and has added value to the team with her batting, and Hayley Matthews is a young, exciting prospect as an all-rounder, so we are quite satisfied with how the team has progressed over the last year.”
The 15-member squad, plus five reserve players, will be part of a training camp from January 28 to February 8 at the West Indies High Performance Centre in Barbados.
The five reserve players are: Leeann Kirby, Natasha McLean, Chedean Nation, Karishma Ramharack and Vanessa Watts.
In addition to the on-field training programme, the players will also undergo mental skills and media training before the touring party departs for South Africa on February 9 and 10.
On arrival in South Africa, they will continue their preparation from February 12 to 19 in Port Elizabeth with a one-week training camp that also includes a practice match against Eastern Province Women before playing the home team in three ICC Women’s Championship One-day and Twenty20 Internationals.
