Currently the world’s best T20 bowler, the 26-year-old also recently reclaimed the title of the No.1 ODI bowler in the latest ICC rankings after her standout performance throughout Australia’s Ashes victory over England.
The experienced right-arm quick was pivotal to Australia’s success over England, claiming 10 wickets for the series at 15.40, while consistently tying down England’s batters at an economy rate of just 3.36 an over.
Schutt’s skill with the ball will be crucial for Australia in the Caribbean, as they look to continue their dominance at the top both the Women’s ODI and T20 team rankings.
Australia and the West Indies will match up in three ODIs and three T20Is with ICC Women’s Championship points on offer in all three 50-over fixtures.
The squad will travel to Antigua on Tuesday 28 August and play an intra-squad match before the first ODI on 5 September.
