Shabnim Ismail, Trisha Chetty out of West Indies tour

South African women will face off in the limited series against the West Indies without two key players: speed bowler Shabnim Ismail and wicketkeeper batter Trisha Chetty. Chetty has been excluded from the tour due to a back injury, while Ismail has been able to return home after his father fell ill.

A press release from Cricket South Africa said: "Chetty suffered a disc protrusion on his back and" Ismail withdrew due to family responsibility after his father became seriously ill. "

a replacement for Ismail has been named, Chetty's house will be occupied by Faye Tunnicliffe, 19, who plays for Boland. That takes the number of unblocked players on this tour to South Africa to four.

In the initial announcement of the squad, Tumi Sekhukhune, Saarah Smith and Robyn Searle received their first calls after impressing in a North vs South competition in Pretoria.

The three matches of the ODI series and the first T20I will be played in Kensington Ov in Barbados, before the teams move to Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad for the remaining four T20I.

South Africa will see this as an important journey, not least because of its timing, which comes as it did before the T20 World Cup in November, also in the West Indies. South Africa will be eager to give a disappointing tour of England in the summer, where they lost 2-1 to hosts in the three-game ODI series, before finishing at the bottom of a T20I tri-series that also included New Zealand.
