The squad is headed by Test skipper Kraigg Brathwaite and includes the likes of Shai Hope, Shamarh Brooks, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich, Shayne Moseley, Raymon Reifer, and Jomel Warrican.

All-rounder Jonathan Carter, Justin Greaves and Keon Harding have all also played white-ball international cricket, leaving the 15-man unit quite a strong one but Drakes said there would be no emphasis placed on individuals.
