West Indies name 13-player squad for CG United ODI Series against India in Trinidad
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad – Cricket West Indies’ (CWI) Senior Men’s Selection Panel today named the 13-player squad to face India in the three-match CG United ODI Series in Trinidad.
The teams will compete for the CG United trophy. The three matches will be played on Friday 22 July, Sunday 24 July and Wednesday 27 July at the historic Queen’s Park Oval. All matches start at 9:30am (8:30am Jamaica Time/7pm India time).
The Selection Panel recalled experienced all-rounder Jason Holder, who returns to the squad after missing the Bangladesh Series to help manage his workload as one of the West Indies all format players.
Lead Selector, The Most Hon. Dr Desmond Haynes said:
“As we all know Jason is one of the leading all-round cricketers in the world and we’re happy to have him back in the team. He will be refreshed, re-energized and ready to go and we can expect to see his brilliance on the field as well as meaningful contributions off the field as well.”
Haynes added: “We had a very challenging three matches against Bangladesh in Guyana so we will be looking to rebound when we face India in the conditions in Trinidad. We have seen some growth among some players, but overall we need to regroup and play better against the Indians.”
