West Indies women to hold training camp in New Zealand

ST JOHN’S—The West Indies women’s team will have a full camp in New Zealand ahead of their eight-match series next month. The World Cup runners-up will arrive in New Zealand on Monday, February 10 for a one-week camp as they prepare to face the White Ferns in three One-Day Internationals and five T20 Internationals. The series will form part of the preparations for the ICC Women’s World T20 in Bangladesh in March and April. “It is great for us that we will have this camp in New Zealand before we play the matches there,” said long-standing captain and wicket-keeper Merissa Aguilleira.

 

“This will be the first time for most of the players playing in New Zealand and we don’t know a lot about the foreign conditions, so it will be very useful to get there early and get acclimatised.” This is the second time the West Indies Women will face New Zealand Women in a short period. Last October, the Windies came from behind to win the ODI series 2-1 at Sabina Park in Jamaica. “We played well in both ODIs and T20s last year and we want to take that good work into 2014,”said Aguilleira. “This will be the start of a really big year for us and this will be a major tour. We have the ICC World T20 in Bangladesh and we want to win that, so the time in New Zealand will be a crucial step towards that goal.”
