Green, Bermingham in NZ squad for West Indies tour
Maddie Green, who last played an international match for New Zealand in February 2012, has been named in the 14-member women's team for the tour to West Indies in October. Green, 21, has played two T20Is for New Zealand since her debut against Australia in 2012 but has not played ODIs yet.
Erin Bermingham, who was dropped from the squad for the Women's World Cup earlier this year, has also been named in the team, while allrounder Kate Broadmore has been omitted after she made herself unavailable for selection due to academic commitments.
The squad, led by Suzie Bates, will play three ODIs against West Indies, followed by a T20 tri-series against West Indies and England. The team was picked from an initial list of 26 players, who took part in training camps over the last couple of months.
"The Caribbean tour is a great opportunity for us in both formats and we're confident we can be successful in both," Katrina Keenan, the coach of the women's team, said. "I'm very confident in the players we've picked and believe that there is a good balance of skills, youth and experience. An extensive off-season programme has the team well prepared for the upcoming summer."
New Zealand begin their tour with a warm-up match on October 4. They play West Indies in the first ODI on October 6, before again squaring off against the hosts for the first tri-series match on October 14.
