Kensington Oval, Barbados will host West Indies’ next outing in the ICC Women’s Championship, starting later this month.

The women regional team will take on South Africa in the first One-Day International (ODI) on Sept. 16 before following up with matches on Sept. 19 and 22.

The three ODIs are part of a tour, which will see West Indies clash with South Africa in a five-match Twenty20 International series at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad from Sept. 24 to Oct. 6.

West Indies currently lie fifth on six points in the eight-team championship standings, after sweeping Sri Lanka 3-0 in the Caribbean last October and then going down to New Zealand last March. South Africa is one from the bottom on four points.

The series against South Africa is one of two home series for the Windies before they defend their title in the ICC Women’s Twenty20 World Cup from Nov. 9-24 in Guyana, St. Lucia, and Antigua and Barbuda, with India also expected to arrive in early October.
