Captain Stafanie Taylor, who missed the T20 International series against the visiting Indian Women’s team in November, has returned to the West Indies Women's squad for a pre-World Cup camp now underway in Antigua.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) is using the camp to finalise preparations for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.

Taylor is one of four Jamaicans in a squad of 21 players selected for the camp, which runs until January 25.

Chinelle Henry, Natasha McLean, and Chedean Nation are the other Jamaicans in the squad.

Deandra Dottin also returned to the squad following a shoulder surgery and a lengthy rehabilitation period.

CWI’s head selector for women and girls, Ann Browne-John said, “the panel has selected a squad showing a mix of youth and experience in preparation for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. The recently concluded Women’s Franchise Tournament in Trinidad also gave the panel an opportunity to view the players in a T20 setting just prior to the World Cup.”

Browne- John added, “Deandra Dottin seemed to return right where she left off before her injury and had remarkable performances from the first match. Shamilia Connell and Shakera Selman are also returning from injury and the panel hopes that by the time the final selection is to be made for the World Cup, all players will be fit and ready.”

The ICC Women’s T20 World Cup will take place between February 21 and March 8 in Australia.
