ST GEORGE’S, Grenada, Dec 15 – West Indies players Devon Smith and Daren Sammy have been named in the Windward Islands’ 14-member squad for the opening round of matches in the regional first-class tournament starting next month.
The team was selected following an aborted Windward Islands’ tournament in Grenada last week. Rain affected most of the matches with the organisers forcing to abandon the tournament.
Grenadian leg-spinner Rawl Lewis will captain the Windwards, with Smith as the Vice-Captain.
The other players selected are Henron Campbell, Junior Murray, Hyron Shallow, Andre Fletcher, Sammy, Miles Bascombe, Roland Ettienne, Deighton Butler, Jean Paul, Kenroy Peters, Dennis George and Liam Sebastien.
The selectors have also chosen eight reserves and have urged the cricket boards in the four territories to ensure that the players and reserves continue their training to remain match ready.
“In addition, when there is a match in a country they will like the reserves from the country to join them in the training session,” said Julian Jack, chief selector.
The Windward Islands play Guyana in their opening Carib Beer Series match in Grenada from January 4-7 before both teams clashing in the KFC Cup one-day series on January 9.
Squad: Rawl Lewis (capt); Devon Smith (v/capt); Henron Campbell, Junior Murray, Hyron Shallow, Andre Fletcher, Daren Sammy, Miles Bascombe, Roland Ettienne, Deighton Butler, Jean Paul, Kenroy Peters, Dennis George, Liam Sebastien.
