Healy has been named captain of the West Indies series, replacing Meg Lanning.

Lanning will most likely return to domestic cricket.

Alyssa Healy will captain Australia Women against the West Indies in six white-ball matches in October. Meg Lanning, who was ruled out of the Ashes in May, is still out due to medical reasons and will most likely return through domestic cricket.

The squad for the three-match ODI and T20I series is identical, with the exception of Grace Harris replacing Alana King in the ODIs. Ellyse Perry, who, like Healy, missed the final ODI against Ireland due to injury, is also back.

Alyssa Healy (c), Tahlia McGrath (vc), Darcie Brown, Ashleigh Gardner, Kim Garth, Grace Harris (only for T20Is), Jess Jonassen, Alana King (only for ODIs), Phoebe Litchfield, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Annabel Sutherland, Georgia Wareham .

“Meg is progressing well but remains unavailable for competitive cricket,” said Dr Pip Inge of the Australian Women’s Team. “There is no set date for Meg’s return to play, but we anticipate a gradual return through domestic cricket.”

“CA’s medical staff will continue to work closely with Meg, and an update on her availability will be provided in due course.”

National selector Shawn Flegler stated, “Although currently unavailable for selection, Meg remains an integral part of our team, and we’ll continue to support her throughout her return to play program.”
