Commenting on the squad, Chief Selector Clyde Butts said: “The team is well-balanced and has been selected with the Twenty20 World Cup in mind. “Looking at the team, we expect this side to do very well against New Zealand, as our preparation for the World Cup continues.”
Leg-spinner Samuel Badree has been picked for a senior West Indies side for the first time and Butts looks forward to seeing him play.“Badree has been a consistent performer in regional tournaments over a period of time and the selectors felt it was the right time to introduce him to the team,” said Butts.
West Indies depart from the British capital of London on Monday and arrive in Fort Lauderdale later in the day ahead of the two T20Is.
