The 25-year-old skipper missed the Australian summer after having shoulder surgery for an injury which first appeared in July 2016 and ruled her out of the Ashes, WBBL and WNCL.

Lanning sat out of Australia's nine-wicket win and series whitewash on Tuesday with a lower back complaint but the issue was no longer a problem.

"She fine," Australian coach Matt Mott said.

"I think it was just a minor back issue and ironically the flying seems to have settled it back down.

"She said 'I'm not missing another game' the other day," he said.

Spinner Jess Jonassen made her return from a knee injury in place of Lanning, playing her first match since going under the knife in September.

However, this will leave selectors with a tough challenge their hands with who will make up their bowling attack.

Young spinners Sophie Molineux, Ashleigh Gardner and Georgia Wareham all stepped up in Jonassen's absence taking 21 wickets across the six T20 matches.

Australia trained in Antigua today for the first time since arriving in the West Indies and are set to take on England in a warm-up match tomorrow, before flying to Guyana for the second match against South Africa.
