West Indies announced squad for tri-series


Everyone is enjoying the most glamorous league of cricket – IPL right now. After IPL ends, the ICC cricket world cup 2019 will start in England, where world’s top 10 cricket team will participate to win the championship. But before world cup starts three teams will play a tri-series from 5 May to 17 May in Dublin, Ireland. These three teams are at West Indies, Ireland and Bangladesh.

West Indies has made many changes in the squad for this series. Big players which are playing in IPL are not included in squad. The players which have not been included are Andre Russell, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer and Alzarri Joseph. One more change is that they have replaced Richard Pybus as West Indies men’s head coach with Floyd Refier. These changes are part of a range of changes introduced by new president of West Indies Cricket Ricky Skerritt.

The side still features a good mix of experience and youth with Jason Holder as captain. Other established players such as Darren Bravo, Shai Hope, Roston Chase and Shane Dowrich are also part of squad. West Indies has included Shannon Gabriel, who last played an ODI in December 2017 into the squad.

It will be perfect opportunities for these teams to get adjust to English conditions for the World Cup, which starts on 30 May. The director of cricket for West Indies jimmy Adams said that “The selection panel consisted of interim Head Coach Floyd Reifer, Captain Jason Holder and interim Chairman of Selectors Robert Haynes, They have selected a squad to Ireland that allows a slightly wider pool of players to get 50-over experience in UK conditions which I think is very important. This is not the World Cup squad, as a number of players are not available for this series as they are still participating in the IPL”.


Jason Holder (captain), John Campbell, Darren Bravo, Shai Hope, Sheldon Cottrell, Shannon Gabriel, Kemar Roach, Sunil Ambris, Raymond Reifer, Fabian Allen, Ashely Nurse, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich, Jonathan Carter.
