The West Indies selectors and coaching team will take a look at two new players at a training camp ahead of their women's series against South Africa in January.

Kyshonna Knight - twin sister of Kycia - and Shemilia Connell are the new players in the 18-strong squad which will be working in Barbados for four weeks.

Both pace bowler Connell and left-hand top-order bat Kyshonna are from Barbados.

The West Indies will take on South Africa in five One-Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals in January and both the camp and the series will serve as preparation for the 2013 World Cup, which India hosts in January and February.

"It is great that we have the players assembled in one place so we can work on their skills and plan strategy. We did well in Sri Lanka, so we want to use that as momentum to take us forward," coach Sherwin Campbell said.

"This camp will be vital and should help with the development of our team. We will stress a lot on teamwork," he added.
 
"In this camp we will be working on several aspects of the game. The main areas will be to improve the skills of the players and their fitness levels.

"We have the series against South Africa coming up, and that should get us off and running in the first week of the year. After that, we will be off to India for the World Cup and that is a ‘big’ tournament for us. We need to make sure that we are in tip-top shape when we face the best in the world."

West Indies Women squad: Merissa Aguillera, Shemaine Campbelle, Shamilia Connell, Britney Cooper, Shanel Daley, Deandra Dottin, Kycia Knight, Kyshonna Knight, Natasha McLean, Anisa Mohammed, Juliana Nero, June Ogle, Amanda Samaroo, Shakera Selman, Tremayne Smartt, Shaqana Quintyne, Stafanie Taylor
