Windies skipper Stafanie Taylor out of South Africa T20Is

Taylor will have to self-isolate after being identified as primary contact of a COVID-19 case

West Indies skipper Stafanie Taylor has been ruled out of the three-match T20I series against South Africa after she was identified as the primary contact for a COVID-19 positive case. Anisa Mohammed will lead the side in Taylor's absence, who will be required to serve strict quarantine period.

The series will begin on Tuesday with the first T20I played at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua which will also host the second and third matches on Thursday and Sunday respectively.

"It is unfortunate that Stafanie will not be available for this series but there are a number of experienced players who we would be looking to, to fill any void," lead selector Ann Browne-John said.

Allrounder Qiana Joseph and pacer Shabika Gajnabi  were named in the squad for the series. Joseph, who was handed a central contract for the 2021-22 season, had represented the Windies in twp ODIs so far.

Meanwhile, off-spinner Karishma Ramharack, who was part of the recent T20I squads against Pakistan and England, has been left out of the squad.

After the T20Is, South African women will play three ODIs from September 7 to 10 at the Coolidge Cricket Ground before returning to Antigua for the final two games.
