New Zealand Women have named their 14-strong squad to take on Australia Women in the four-match Rose Bowl series of One-Day Internationals in December.

The 26th contest will feature four ODIs in Sydney, with the first game on 12th December taking place at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The following three matches will be held at the North Sydney Oval.

New Zealand's squad shows two changes from the team that played in the ICC Women's World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka with recalls for seam bowler Rachel Candy and wicket-keeper Rachel Priest.

Priest played the last of her 30 ODIs against India in England in 2011 while Candy has played 10 ODIs, featuring most recently against England in March.

"We have selected a strong squad that contains a core group of experienced and proven performers," National Selection Manager Kim Littlejohn said.

"The majority of the squad were part of the White Ferns side that made the semi-final off the Twenty20 World Cup in Sri Lanka.

"Rachel Priest has been selected on the back of some very strong domestic performances. She is an experienced wicket-keeper who is capable of batting anywhere in the order.

"Rachel Candy is a seasoned performer who has shown huge improvement in the last 12 months and will bolster the seam bowling ranks.

"Every player in the line-up will be making sure they put their best foot forward ahead of the upcoming ICC Women's World Cup."

New Zealand ODI squad: Suzie Bates (captain), Amy Satterthwaite (vice-captain), Erin Bermingham, Nicola Browne, Rachel Candy, Sophie Devine, Lucy Doolan, Frances Mackay, Katey Martin, Sara McGlashan, Morna Nielsen, Katie Perkins, Rachel Priest, Sian Ruck
