New Zealand and West Indies Women will play three One-Day Internationals and five Twenty20 Internationals in February and March.

New Zealand tour the West Indies in October for a series of matches including a Twenty20 tri-series involving England and then will then host the 2013 World Cup finalists early next year.

The series will get underway with the ODIs at Lincoln University on 26th and 28th and 2nd March after the West Indies take on Auckland on 23rd February.

The first three Twenty20s will be played Invercargill before the final two matches are at the Queenstown Events Centre.

A 14-member squad is already preparing for the tour to the Caribbean.

"We’ve been really pleased with how hard the girls have worked over the winter, particularly on their fitness," coach Katrina Keenan said.

"It’s important we continue to make strides forward and being able to train on quality wickets at this time of year is ideal preparation for us.

"We’re excited about the coming summer of cricket."
