Full Squad: Denesh Ramdin (Captain), Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Kraigg Brathwaite , Darren Bravo, Rajindra Chandrika, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Jason Holder, Shai Hope, Veerasammy Permaul, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor.

    It’s very unlikely Dowrich will play. Already has a keeper who’s also the captain, but congrats on making the final eleven

    Congrats Shane,don’t think you will make your debut just yet as long as Ramdin is the keeper and skipper to boot.
    This is a reward for consistency throughout the season,but the time is not far away.
    I suspect Chandrika will open so as to allow Hope to bat at #6

    At least he was named. That is a big accomplishment.

    It has been long in coming for someone to really put some “fire” under RAMDIN heels . He is the worst wicket keeping batsman in international cricket. Dowrich will have to wait tho seeing that Ramdin is captain and the WICB/Selectors love him, but a “change” is gonna come . It will be “best for WI cricket .
