West Indies name “A” team squads

Date:

Share post:

ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The interim Selection Panel of Cricket West Indies has named West Indies “A” One-Day and (Four-Day) “Test” squads for the India “A” Tour of the West Indies, starting next month.

The “A” squads comprise players with international match experience – headed by the likes of Kraigg Brathwaite and Roston Chase – and excellent performances in regional competitions over the last few years – led by the irrepressible Leeward Islands Hurricanes spin-bowling all-rounder, Rahkeem Cornwall.

The squads were chosen by the interim selection panel, chaired by Robert Haynes, with the assistance of former West Indies opener Stuart Williams and former Barbados Pride chairman of selectors, Hendy Wallace.

Additional input was provided by interim West Indies head coach Floyd Reifer and captain Jason Holder.

With the series acting as a trial for a number of hopefuls for both teams and overlapping with the series duel between the senior teams of the two sides, West Indies “A” will make five changes to the squad for the final “Test.”

Nine of the 15 players in the One-Day squad have played One-Day Internationals for the senior West Indies team; 10 of the players in the squad for the first and second “Tests” have played full international Tests for the senior side and six Test players will appear in the third match.

Chase will captain the One-Day side in the five matches, all set to be played in Antigua at the Coolidge and Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Grounds.

The captaincy of the “Test” squad will be split between Test opener Brathwaite for the first two of the three “Tests” and fellow Barbados Pride batsman Shamarh Brooks for the last match of the series, which will be played at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad.

Brathwaite, fellow opener John Campbell, Chase, Cornwall and wicketkeeper/batsman Shane Dowrich will leave to join the senior team’s preparation camp for the two-Test series between West Indies and India which starts on August 22 in Antigua.
