Dane Van Niekerk returns to lead South Africa for limited-overs series against West Indies

The two teams will play three T20Is followed by five ODIs, starting August 31 in the Caribbean

South Africa Women announce an 18-member squad for the limited-overs tour of the Caribbean, where they will take on West Indies Women in three T20 Internationals (T20I) followed by five One-Day Internationals (ODI).

Captain Dane Van Niekerk returns to lead the side, while all-rounder Chloe Tyron too is making a comeback into the side. Van Niekerk was recently in action in The hundred, where she led the Oval Invincibles. She and Lizelle Lee are among the five players to have scored in excess of 200 runs in the tournament so far. She missed the series wins over Pakistan and India due to an injury.

The squad also features the North West Dragons duo of Masabata Klaas and Tazmin Brits after their impressive stints in Zimbabwe with the SA Women Emerging side.

Following the squad announcement head coach Hilton Moreeng said, “Following the conclusion of our recent camps in Pretoria the players have continued with their training program, followed by a period of rest and recovery before reconvening for our week-long camp ahead of our departure on Monday.

 “A few of our players have been making solid progress in their return from injuries and we are glad to see them giving a good account of themselves in International tournaments. We look forward to them taking part in this series after some time away from the national set-up.”

The squad is scheduled to travel to Antigua via Heathrow next Monday (August 23) with the first match - a T20I - set to take place at the Sir Viv Richards Cricket Ground.

South Africa Women squad: Dane Van Niekerk (c), Sune Luus, Ayabonga Khaka, Shabnim Ismail, Laura Wolvaardt, Trisha Chetty (wk), Sinalo Jafta, Tasmin Britz, Marizanne Kapp, Nondu Shangase, Lizelle Lee, Nonkululeko Mlaba, Mignon du Preez, Chloe Tryon, Nadine de Klerk, Lara Goodall, Tumi Sekhukhune, Masabata Klaas
