Cricket West Indies’ (CWI) Senior Men’s Selection Panel on Monday named the 13-player squad to face India in the three-match CG United ODI Series in Trinidad.
The West Indies are set to compete against India for the CG United trophy in a three-match ODI series.
The three matches will be played on July 22, 24, and 27 at the historic Queen’s Park Oval. All matches start at 9:30hrs.
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 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.”
Guyanese Keemo Paul and Gudakesh Motie feature in the 13-man squad, while Romario Shepherd has been listed as a reserve player.
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.”
Tickets are available for purchase at half-price for children under the age of 16 and seniors through the Cricket West Indies website.
Fans can also purchase tickets from box offices at Queen’s Park Oval and the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) headquarters at the National Cricket Centre, Couva, from 10:00h to 15:00h daily (excluding Sunday, July 17) leading up to each match day.
