South Africa's women's selection panel has included 16 year-old Chloe Tryon in the 14-member squad for the ICC Women's World Twenty20 in the Caribbean in April and May. The call-up is a result of Tyron's impressive form for KwaZulu-Natal in the CSA Women's Provincial League this season.

"Nobody's place in the women's squad is secure and Chloe has pushed some of the experienced campaigners this season. She has been superb for Gauteng and she can definitely play an important role in women's cricket in the future," national coach Noor Rhode said. "We have kept it consistent, with 12 of the 14 players having taken part in the last home series against West Indies, but have included some dynamic performers."

Tyron, an allrounder, is a powerful hitter of the ball, a skill that will come handy in Twenty20. "Bowling is my strong point but I can definitely bat as well," she said. "The national women's team has had disappointing runs at previous World Cups so hopefully I can help the team bring the trophy home."

The selectors also included experienced allrounder Susan Benade, who had been dropped for the series against West Indies. Cri-Zelda Brits was reappointed as captain, returning after a two year absence.

Squad Cri-Zelda Brits (capt), Susan Benade, Trisha Chetty, Mignon du Preez, Shandre Fritz, Shabnum Ismail, Ashlyn Kilowan, Marcia Letsoalo, Sunette Loubser, Alicia Smith, Angelique Taai, Chloe Tryon, Charlize van der Westhuizen, Dane van Niekerk.

Reserves Marizanne Kapp, Kirsty Thomson, Dinesha Devnarain, Masabata Klaas.
