West Indies Women will host South Africa in an eight-match limited overs series starting at the end of the month, as the Caribbean side continue their preparation for the ICC World Cup qualifiers next December.
The Stafanie Taylor-led side will clash with the Proteas women in three Twenty20 Internationals and five One-Day Internationals from Aug. 31 to Sept. 19, with the matches shared between the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground and the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.
In a similar eight-match series staged last month in Antigua, West Indies swept the Pakistanis 3-0 in the Twenty20 series before pulling off a 3-2  win in the five-match One-Day International series.
The qualifiers in December will determine the last three spots for next year’s World Cup in New Zealand from March 4 to April 3.
