BRIDGETOWN, Barbados - Young fast bowlers Oshane Thomas and Obed McCoy will be travelling with the West Indies squad for the Colonial Medical Insurance One-Day International (ODI) series as a development initiative. 

Thomas, the 22 year old Jamaican fast-bowler last represented the West Indies last August against India. While for McCoy, the 23 year old Saint Vincent left-arm medium-pacer, he previously appeared in the Colonial Medical Insurance ODI versus England last March.

Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams explained the benefits of this decision: “Head Coach Phil Simmons recently expressed concerns over the readiness of both Oshane and Obed. Out of the discussion, he requested a provision be made for both players to spend time with the squad over the course of the Ireland series where they could undergo supervised fitness and technical work.
