Windies Announce Squad For The #PakvsWI ODI Series
Windies are scheduled to play 3 ODIs next month in Pakistan. The series is part of the ICC ODI Super League and hence, holds significance as both teams would want to grab the opportunity to earn some valuable points in an effort to secure one of the top seven places to gain automatic qualification for the next ODI world cup.
The 15 member squad includes Nicholas Pooran (Captain), Shai Hope (Vice Captain), Nkrumah Bonner, Shamarh Brooks, Keacy Carty, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Shermon Lewis, Kyle Mayers, Anderson Phillip, Rovman Powell, Jayden Seales, Romario Shepherd and Hayden Walsh Junior.
Desmond Haynes, who is leading selection committee while explaining the decision to include Keachy Carty said, “We saw several glimpses of his ability the way he played against England earlier this year for the CWI President’s XI. We hope that giving him this opportunity he will recognize the importance of representing the West Indies. We think he is a young batsman with great promise, and this is the kind of tour he can show he fits in.
“We also have a very good group of young fast bowlers who have demonstrated their ability and we want to use the tour to give them opportunities in the 50-over format….Phillip has been around for some time, and we know what he can offer, Seales has been very good in Test cricket and Lewis is making a return to the West Indies set-up following some good performances.”
