A number of the top performers in the recent Women's Caribbean Premier League, as well as the core of the side that beat Ireland 3-0 in a home T20I series in July, have been included in the 15-strong squad that is set to take on the number one side in the world.
Aside from a near decade-long first-class career with South Australia, Deitz has had a heavy involvement as a player and coach in men's associate cricket with Vanuatu and has coached both the Bangladesh women's and Netherlands women's teams.
West Indies lead women's selector Ann Browne-John was excited by the mix of youth and experience in the squad.
"The selection panel has chosen to maintain most of the players who were victorious in the home series against Ireland," Browne-John said. "Jannillea Glasgow, after having an outstanding Rising Stars Women's Under 19 tournament, has been included in the 15-member squad and we see the return of Karishma Ramharack.
"We have continued to place confidence in some of the developing players. Several of the players are coming off title-winning performances in the Massy Caribbean Premier League so we are expecting them to continue their good run of form. This is a team we believe can produce competitive cricket against a top team like Australia, under the guidance of the new head coach and led by the captain Hayley Matthews who's enjoying a very productive 2023 thus far."
West Indies women's squad: Hayley Matthews (capt), Shemaine Campbelle (vc), Aaliyah Alleyne, Shamilia Connell, Afy Fletcher, Cherry Ann Fraser, Shabika Gajnabi, Jannillea Glasgow, Chinelle Henry, Zaida James, Djenaba Joseph, Ashmini Munisar, Karishma Ramharack, Stafanie Taylor, Rashada Williams
