All-rounder Kate Broadmore has made herself unavailable for the tour due to university commitments.
White Ferns Coach Katrina Keenan said: “An extensive off-season programme has the team well prepared for the upcoming summer. Pre-tour camps in Maroochydore and Tauranga are also part of the build-up.”
“The Caribbean tour is a great opportunity for us in both formats and we’re confident we can be successful in both. “I’m very confident in the players we’ve picked and believe that there is a good balance of skills, youth and experience”

“With the domestic season scheduled later in the year, those players who missed out will have every opportunity to push their case for future selection and we’ll be watching their progress closely.”
