DHAKA, Bangladesh- The Selection Panel of Cricket West Indies has named a 15-member squad to play Bangladesh in three (3) One Day Internationals on December 9,11,14 in Bangladesh.

The selection sees the return of Darren Bravo to the ODI squad, along with T20 skipper Carlos Brathwaite and Roston Chase. Recent debutants, Fabian Allen, Chandrapaul Hemraj and Oshane Thomas retain their places following the ODI series against India last month.

Due to the absence of regular Captain Jason Holder, CWI’s Board of Directors has approved Rovman Powell as interim Captain, as the WINDIES seek to reverse the recent 2-1 home series defeat in July 2018.

Chairman of Selectors Courtney Browne said, “With two more ODI Series before the 2019 World Cup, the Bangladesh series allows us to narrow our search for our final 15-member World Cup squad. In the absence of captain Jason Holder, the panel believes the team can still be competitive, especially with the return of Darren Bravo. Darren’s experience will add value to the batting, which in turn will place selection pressure for spots in the squad. The selection panel therefore takes this opportunity to wish the team much success in Bangladesh.”

The full team is as follows:
Rovman Powell (Captain), Marlon Samuels, Devendra Bishoo, Roston Chase
Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo
Shai Hope, Carlos Brathwaite, . Keemo Paul
Kieran Powell, Fabian Allen, Kemar Roach,
Sunil Ambris, Oshane Thomas

Marlon Samuels plays no cricket in between these sporadic appearances for CWI. This makes no sense. Look at the uproar in India led by Gavaskar because MS Dhoni has taken time off. And Samuels is no Dhoni.

Let Hetmyer and Samuels open, only pick one of the "specialist" openers
Neither are among our 5 best batsmen, our 5 best batsmen should play

Unless one opens or comes in at 6, I don't see how Bravo, Hetmyer, Hope & Samuels play in the same XI.

Now you know why I gavce up this WI sh....te long ago.I have no promlem with who is captain.Just concern as was the case with
Holder when Lloyd slotted him. BUT the person who should be leading this squad is HETMEYER.

But what seems clear and strange is that the performances in regional 50 tournament did not count towards selection at all.
What the fact else Cornwall must do to gain selection. ?

I can understand the bias against Blackwood ,McCarthy and Campbell but surely Cornwall should be in the squad and Pooran too for both 50/50 and 20/20.
Carter can well feel all done too.He was one opf the most assured batsmen in the tournament.

Is one suppose to assume that the regional 50/50 of October will have weight in selection for the ODIs against England and the
World Cup when they will be much staler in worth ?

I am at a loss. At least this time, the selectors/committee seemed to have met. Better they hadn't.

Seems like the selectors don't want to give the captaincy to Carlos for obvious reasons smile
