Cricket West Indies (CWI) has confirmed that Hayley Matthews will be eligible for selection from the third One Day International (ODI) against India women. This follows her withdrawal from the previous series against Australia due to a breach of CWI’s Code of Conduct.

The matter was referred to the six-member CWI Disciplinary Committee headed by Independent Chairman, Justice Winston Anderson.

The committee ruled that Matthews should be suspended for eight international matches, which will end after the second ODI of the upcoming India series, which begins in Antigua on Friday.

Meanwhile, CWI also confirmed that star all-rounder Deandra Dottin is continuing her active rehabilitation from shoulder surgery that has kept her out of cricket since May following a stand out performance at the Women's Super50 Cup.

Dottin is undergoing a gradual return to playing plan under the guidance of the CWI medical team.
