Only two members of the squad – vice-captain Vishal Singh and left-arm fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell – have featured for the senior men’s team in full international Tests, and Sunil Ambris is a current member of the senior One-day International squad playing against England.

A number of the other players – including captain Shamarh Brooks – have featured in previous series either for Windies “A” or in tour matches against visiting international teams in the last two seasons.

SQUAD
Shamarh Brooks (Captain), Vishal Singh (Vice-Captain),Sunil Ambris
John Campbell,Yannic Cariah,Rahkeem Cornwall
Sheldon Cottrell,Jahmar Hamilton,Montcin Hodge
Damion Jacobs,Keon Joseph,Reynard Leveridge
Oshane Thomas

Commenting on the squad, Chairman of the CWI Selection Panel, Courtney Browne said: “Our A-Team is the feeding ground for our senior men’s team and so we are looking to continue the development of our second-tier players. With a strong focus on consistency in selection, this series is another opportunity for them to continue to press their claims for a place in the senior side, thus placing selection pressure on incumbents, ensuring there is healthy competition for spots and growing our talent pool.”

I have no real problem with squad, great to see the two JA potentially fiery pace bowlers in the mix, most proactive move by CWI in a long time.

Leveridge Thomas Cotterel...that is some real pace but Keon Joseph starts with Cotterel

Jacobs, Cornwall, the spin options

Hamilton the wkpr

Brooks,Singh,Ambris,Campbell,Cariah and Hodge the specialist bats.

so its five of the specialist bats,the wkpr, the two spinners and three fast bowlers the likely team.

It's hard to criticize this selection because almost every selectee deserves his place based on past performance. Perhaps Leveridge and Thomas are wildcards but obviously the selectors saw something in them.

Strange logic here in the team selection. Vishal Singh but no Kyle Hope. Are they implying that they are still interested in Vishal? No Hetty either? Or they are thinking once Dwayne Bravo is back the test team batting will be trimmed accordingly? Hard to see the plan here in the batsmen selected. I am happy that we are spending more on pace development over spin. I cannot see WI producing a test winning spin bowler . There will be the odd match but our spinners are not in the same league. We are fire power, our natural game is free scoring batsmen and 90 mph firemen

It is a strange selection, CB and his group has out live their usefulness.
This is a platform for the continuation of players.
What's the problem with Leon Johnson, Beaton, Kyle Hope and others, that was part of the last A team squad?

Half of these players did nothing in regional 4 day competition to be in the team.
However, the selectors see promise.
I do too... I'm really happy Leveridge is playing.

But.... All these men see is a Bajan Cpt.

Nobody will questions team selection now .. just the Cpt

I will not say that Rakeem is a waste but will we seriously play him in any of the three formats? His is talented and should have been given a chance over Bishoo in the ODIs. So since that did not happen why play him in the "A" team if you are not going to select him beyond this grade?
