Former internationals Matthew Bell and Jacob Oram will assist New Zealand Women during their upcoming tour of the West Indies.

New Zealand head to the Caribbean in September to begin the qualification cycle for the 2017 World Cup in England.

Bell and Oram, who have previously worked with Wellington and Central Districts respectively, will act as assistant coaches to Hamish Barton.

Bell will work as a batting coach with Oram concentrating on bowling and fielding.

"With so much knowledge of the game, we’re really excited to have Matt and Jacob working with us and I know the team will feed off it too," Barton said.

"This group can learn a huge amount from their experience and we’re just pleased to have two guys of such a high quality involved as we prepare for the West Indies."
