A still recovering Deandra Dottin couldn't make it to West Indies women's squad to face Australia women in a three-match T20I series starting on Saturday. There were several other senior players making way as well, including opener Hayley Matthews who had been suspended from taking part in the recently concluded ODI series between both teams.

Stafanie Taylor (Capt), Anisa Mohammed, Afy Fletcher, Chinelle Henry, Shamilia Connell, Stacy Ann King, Natasha McLean, Britney Cooper, Kyshona Knight, Reniece Boyce (wk), Karishma Ramharack, Shabika Gajnabi, Sheneta Grimmond

In: Anisa Mohammed, Britney Cooper, Reniece Boyce (wk), Shabika Gajnabi, Sheneta Grimmond

Out: Deandra Dotin, Shemaine Campbell, Hayley Matthews, Kycia Knight, Chedean Nation, Shakera Selman

West Indies haven't played any T20I cricket since June, when they beat Ireland 3-0 but lost to England 1-0, with two matches washed out. Six of the players who went to the UK could not find a place in this squad, making way for new face such as wicketkeeper Reniece Boyce, offspinner Sheneta Grimmond and allrounder Shabika Gajnabi. Both players - in fact all 13 members - were part of the squad that had been picked for the third ODI against Australia earlier this week.

Kycia Knight remains sidelined by a back injury she picked up during those 50-over games while legspinner Anisa Mohammed makes a T20 comeback having played her last short-format game in February 2019.
