Teenaged Jamaican top order batter Chinelle Henry has been named in West Indies Women's squad for the Twenty20 tri-series against New Zealand and England in Barbados.

The tri-series begins on October 14.

However, while the 18-year-old Henry has been drafted into the Twenty20 squad, the selectors did not chose her for the three One-Day Internationals against New Zealand in Jamaica.

West Indies women will play the three-match One-Day International series against New Zealand before the tri-series.

Those matches will be played at Sabina Park on October 6, 8 and 10.

West Indies will also play a three-match One-Day International series against England in Trinidad after the Twenty20 tri-series, though that squad is yet to be named.

The One-Day International against England will be played on October 29, November 1 and 3.

Henry is one of three Jamaicans in the 13-member Twenty20 squad for the tri-series.

The other Jamaicans are Shanel Daley and Stafanie Taylor.

Trinidadian Merissa Aguilleira will captain the Twenty20 side. Left-armer Stacy-Ann King, also of Trinidad, gets a recall after a year-long hiatus.

The 13-member One-Day squad for the Jamaica leg of the New Zealand series features three Jamaicans. They are Daley, Taylor and Natasha McLean.

Aguilleira will also lead the One-Day team.

The One-Day squad is completed by Shemaine Campbelle, Deandra Dottin, Kycia Knight, Kyshona Knight,  Anisa Mohammed, Subrina Munroe, Shaquana Quintyne, Tremayne Smartt and Shakera Selman.
