So West Indies announced their schedule for practice matches and reserve players list for world cup 2019. Two big names, Kieron Pollard and Dawayne Bravo included in the reserve player list.
West Indies cricket CEO Grave said on West cricket board Official website: “We are very grateful to Hampshire CCC for agreeing to host us at the Ageas Bowl and to Cricket Australia for agreeing the additional warm-up game. Due to the commitments and promises made, to both our players and the BCCI, this is the first time that our entire World Cup squad can get together since the IPL finished. We are confident that these additional five days of training and the extra warm-up game will mean that our players will be ready to perform at their best in our opening match against Pakistan on May 31.”
Addressing the reserve players, the Interim Chairman of Selectors, Robert Haynes commented: “The choice of players in the reserve list is to really cover our bases and ensure we have a good balance in the pool of players that can be selected if replacements are required. We think the skill set in this pool is strong with a good blend of experience and upcoming young players who can be ready to contribute when required.”
