0

The Cricket West Indies (CWI) Senior Men’s Selection Panel on Monday announced the squad for the three match CG United One Day International (ODI) Series powered by YES BANK against India, which starts on Thursday July 27 at Kensington Oval in Barbados.

The 15-member squad was named following a four-day camp at Kensington Oval held prepare the white-ball players for the upcoming CG United ODI Series, as well as the five-match T20I Series that follows.

The selectors have recalled left-handed batsman Shimron Hetmyer and fast bowler Oshane Thomas.

Fast bowler Jayden Seales and leg-spinner Yannic Cariah have been included following their rehabilitation from surgery, while left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie is also included, having recovered from injury.

Hetmyer and Motie apart, the other Guyanese included in the squad are all-rounders Kevin Sinclair and Romario Shepherd.

Lead Selector, The Most Hon. Dr. Desmond Haynes said: “We welcome Oshane and Shimron back into the group. Both have played at the international level before, with some success, and we believe they will fit well into the set-up. Oshane brings pace and is a potential wicket-taker with the new ball. Shimron’s style of batting will offer a lot especially in the middle stage of the innings and he is also a potential ‘finisher’.”

Kensington Oval hosts the first two matches in the three-match CG United ODI Series on Thursday July 27 and Saturday July 29.

The teams then move to Trinidad for the third and final CG United ODI at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy on Tuesday August 1. All three matches start at 09:30h local time (08:30h Jamaica time).
