Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Sunday confirmed that Trisha Chetty and Shabnim Ismail will not form part of the touring Proteas women's squad to the West Indies as previously announced.

Chetty suffered a disc protrusion on her lower back and has been ruled out of the three-match ODI and five-match T20 outing.

Ismail has pulled out due to family responsibility after her father fell gravely ill.

Nineteen-year-old Faye Tunnicliffe will replace Chetty, while selectors have opted not to replace Ismail.

The Western Province wicket-keeper/batter joins other National Academy graduates Tumi Sekhukhune, Robyn Searle and Saarah Smith on the list of fresh faces added to the national side.

The team departed for the West Indies on Sunday from OR Tambo International.
