A 15-player Southern Stars squad will head to the World Twenty20 and New Zealand later this month for a three match T20I series.
The squad includes 12 players from its recent home T20 International series against India, plus Perth Scorchers batter Elyse Villani, Sydney Thunder off-spinner Erin Osborne and Melbourne Stars leg-spinner Kristen Beams.
The Southern Stars are searching for their fourth straight title.
