West Indies Women will play five One-Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals against South Africa Women from 7th to 20th January.
The ODI series will provide both teams with competitive preparation for the World Cup and the two Twenty20 matches will be played ahead of the final matches of the Caribbean Twenty20.
The West Indies won their first match since triumphing at the ICC World Twenty20 but were pushed hard by Bangladesh before running out the victors by 18 runs in Mirpur.
Marlon Samuels thumped nine sixes in an innings of 85 that led the West Indies to 197 for four before Bangladesh, inspired by Tamim Iqbal's 88 not out, closed on 179 for one.
Despite failing to chase 212 yesterday, Bangladesh managed, just about, to chase six more than that today to win an absorbing five-match series against the West Indies by three games to two. They lost regular wickets throughout their run chase and it was left to number ten Elias Sunny to partner Nasir Hossain when the winning boundary was hit.
Shafiul Islam had earlier made the most of his first chance of the series, taking three for 31, as the West Indies batsmen again struggled.
When West Indies went two-nil down to Bangladesh just five days ago there were again calls in some quarters for their captain Darren Sammy's head. However, less than a week later Sammy has played a starring role in helping West Indies level the series.
His unbeaten 60 from number eight allowed the West Indies to recover from more spin-induced woes to post a competitive total, while his first-over double-strike provided the hosts with a setback from which they never recovered.
Bangladesh have added left-arm spinner Elias Sunny to their squad for the final two One-Day Internationals against West Indies in Mirpur.
Bangladesh raced into a 2-0 series lead in Khulna but have been pegged back as West Indies, inspired by four wickets from their spinner Sunil Narine, won the third game by four wickets.
The series was Bangladesh's for the taking before the third One-Day International in Mirpur began, but, thanks to Marlon Samuels and Sunil Narine, West Indies live to fight another day.
Narine finally found some of the magic that he had been missing on the tour so far and took four for 37 to help restrict the hosts to a modest total, while Samuels hit a century to help steady West Indies' shaky run chase.
West Indies coach Ottis Gibson expects his side to produce an improved performance in the third One-Day International against Bangladesh in Mirpur tomorrow (5th December).
His side trail 2-0 in the five-match series after Bangladesh won the opening two matches by seven wickets and 160 runs respectively.
Bangladesh will have to do without the services of all-rounder Abul Hasan as they try to protect their 2-0 One-Day International series lead over the West Indies.
Hasan, who shot to prominence by scoring a century making his Test debut at number 10, also against the West Indies, suffered a side strain during his side's 160-run win in the second game in Khulna.
Hosts India will get the 2013 ICC Women's World Cup underway when they take on the West Indies in the tournament's opening game at the Wankhede Stadium on 31st January.
Five-time champions Australia play Pakistan on the same day, 2009 runners-up New Zealand take on South Africa one day later and reigning champions England get their defence underway against Sri Lanka on 2nd February.
Bangladesh recorded their biggest ever win in terms of runs in One-Day Internationals as they thrashed West Indies by 160 in Khulna.
Anamul Haque set things up with a mature 120 and added 174 with Mushfiqur Rahim to help the hosts recover from a shaky start. Sohag Gazi and Abdur Razzak then each took three wickets as West Indies imploded for 132 in the run chase.
Half-centuries by Tamim Iqbal and Naeem Islam guided Bangladesh to a relatively comfortable seven-wicket win over the West Indies in the first One-Day International in Khulna.
After Sohag Gazi had marked his debut with four wickets to help dismiss the West Indies for 199, Iqbal hit 58 and Naeem was unbeaten on 50 in 79 balls.
A day prior to the first One-Day International against Bangladesh in Khulna West Indies captain Darren Sammy has again outlined his target for his team to win every game they play during the tour.
They have completed the first part of the task by winning both Test matches to take a 2-0 series win and now Sammy targets a 5-0 win to improve their ODI ranking.
The West Indies Cricket Board has provided full playing kit for the West Indies Blind Cricket Team for their participation in the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup for the Blind.
The team departed the Caribbean yesterday, November 28th for the tournament which will be played in Bangalore, India from December 1st to 13th.
Zimbabwe will tour the West Indies to play two Tests, three One-Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals in February and March.
The ODI series will see international cricket return to the Grenada National Stadium for the first time since 2009 and the Tests will be the first between the two sides since 2003.
Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting will lead the Australian Prime Minister's XI in a one-day game against the touring West Indians in Canberra on 29th January.
Manuka Oval will host the match and a capacity crowd is expected for the first ever match under floodlights at the ground.
Bangladesh and West Indies have both suffered injury setbacks ahead of the forthcoming limited-overs matches in Khulna and Mirpur.
Tino Best has been ruled out of both the five-match ODI series and the one-off T20 as a result of the hamstring injury that he picked up during the second Test, while Shakib Al Hasan will miss at least the first two matches in the ODI series after being diagnosed with a stress fracture of his right tibia.
Bangladesh's lower-order didn't last long on the final morning, leaving West Indies a target of just 27 to wrap up victory in the two-match series 2-0.
Tino Best took three of the wickets to fall to end with career-best figures of six for 40, while Nasir Hossain again fell just short of his maiden Test century.
Only Shakib Al Hasan stood between West Indies and a series clean sweep on day four in Khulna. If it hadn't been for his four wickets in the morning and subsequent 97, then the match would probably already be over with the tourists victors by an innings and plenty.
Nonetheless, they should still wrap up the win early tomorrow as Shakib fell to the final ball of the day to leave Bangladesh still 35 runs adrift with only four wickets remaining.
West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels says he has mixed feelings after hitting a career-best score of 260 on day three of the second Test against Bangladesh in Khulna.
He more than doubled his previous best effort to lead his side to stumps on 564 for three, replying to Bangladesh's 387, but feels he could have scored more runs.
