New Zealand have confirmed the same 14 women that will play the West Indies later this month will then head to Bangladesh for the ICC Women's World Twenty20.

The squad includes four uncapped players - Samantha Curtis, Holly Huddleston, Hayley Jensen and Felicity Leydon-Davis - although they are likely to have all made their debuts before New Zealand's first group game against Australia on 23rd March.

New coach Warren Lees, who will take charge of the team for the first time when they play the West Indies in three One-Day and five Twenty20 Internationals, hopes the eight matches will be ideal preparation for his side.

"Coming out of a series against the West Indies, we’ll arrive in Bangladesh with a lot of cricket under our belt and ready to make a run for the trophy," he said.

"We have a number of players with experience in sub-continent conditions who have played at big tournaments and we’ll need their leadership to help guide some of the younger members of the squad.

"With four uncapped players they’ll need a little bit of time to gel, but there are enough old heads in the side to make sure it’s a smooth transition," he added.

New Zealand, runners-up in both 2009 and 2010, also play Ireland (25th March), Pakistan (27th March) and South Africa (31st March) aiming to qualify for the semi-finals on 3rd and 4th April.

New Zealand ICC Women's World Twenty20 squad: Suzie Bates (captain), Sophie Devine (vice-captain), Nicola Browne, Samantha Curtis, Maddy Green, Holly Huddleston, Hayley Jensen, Felicity Leydon-Davis, Sara McGlashan, Frances Mackay, Katey Martin, Morna Nielsen, Katie Perkins, Rachel Priest
