The 12-mem­ber squad will be led by Ash­mi­ni Mu­nis­ar with Sama­roo as the vice cap­tain. The se­lec­tors orig­i­nal­ly named 15 play­ers but three were un­able to se­cure trav­el­ing visas to make the tour. Mu­nis­ar is a right-hand­ed bat­ter and off-spin­ner, while Sama­roo is a left-hand­ed bat­ter and off-spin­ner

The team has a num­ber of oth­er ex­cit­ing all­rounders, in­clud­ing Joseph, who was the lead­ing run-mak­er in the CWI Ris­ing Stars U-19 T20 tour­na­ment played last month. The most ex­pe­ri­enced play­er is Zai­da James, the left-hand­ed bat­ter, who was trav­el­ing re­serve for the West In­dies Women’s Se­nior team ear­li­er this year. Last year she rep­re­sent­ed West In­dies Women’s “A” Team against Pak­istan “A” Team

The head coach is Steve Liburd, the for­mer Lee­ward Is­lands bats­man and West In­dies Men’s U-19s as­sis­tant coach; with Meris­sa Aguilleira, the for­mer West In­dies Women’s and T&T cap­tain, as the team man­ag­er

Both teams have qual­i­fied for the in­au­gur­al ICC Un­der-19 Women’s T20 World Cup tak­ing place in South Africa in Jan­u­ary 2023 and this up­com­ing se­ries will be ide­al prepa­ra­tion for the glob­al event

Ann Browne-John, lead se­lec­tor for West In­dies Women said: “His­to­ry has been cre­at­ed with the se­lec­tion of this West In­dies U-19 team. No crick­et tour­na­ments were played dur­ing the pan­dem­ic, and it was there­fore not on­ly im­por­tant, but al­so an eye-open­er to view the girls in the re­cent U-19 tour­na­ment. The se­lec­tors were ex­treme­ly pleased with the qual­i­ty of skill shown by these young play­ers. The team has a good mix of bat­ting and bowl­ing in­clud­ing some left-han­ders.”

Browne-John added: “There are a few play­ers in­clud­ing the cap­tain Ash­mi­ni Mu­nis­ar and Djen­a­ba Joseph who re­cent­ly played ma­jor roles for their se­nior teams in the re­gion­al tour­na­ment in Guyana. This se­ries as well as a few oth­er planned up­com­ing events would help the play­ers in their de­vel­op­ment thrust as they pre­pare for the ICC Un­der-19 Women’s T20 World Cup in Jan­u­ary.”

The first two games will be held un­der flood­lights with 6.30 pm starts on Mon­day and Tues­day. The re­main­ing three match­es in the se­ries will all be day­light games with 10.30 am starts on Thurs­day and Fri­day­be­fore the fifth and fi­nal match of the se­ries on Sun­day.
