A six-member disciplinary committee headed by Justice Winston Anderson, including Jeffrey Dujon, the former West Indies international (as the players representative), oversaw the matter and ruled that Matthews should be suspended for eight international matches. This suspension will be completed after the second ODI against India at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on November 6.

With this in mind, West Indies selection panel announced the team only for the first two ODIs against India. Stafanie Taylor will lead a slightly under strength squad that sees the return of Shemaine Campbelle and Chedean Nation. Fast bowlers Aaliyah Alleyne and Shawnisha Hector earned their maiden call ups as well.

Meanwhile, hard-hitting allrounder Deandra Dottin is on the road to recovery following a shoulder injury that has kept her out of the game since May. She is undergoing rehabilitation under the guidance of the CWI medical team.
