Windies team for Australia named

The West Indies selectors have adhered to their youth selection policy and have retained the players who formed the nucleus of the Test tour to Sri Lanka, for the imminent tour of Australia.

The squad will again be led by captain Jason Holder with his vice-captain being fellow Barbadian Kraigg Brathwaite. Holder and Brathwaite are two of seven Barbadians heading Down Under.

Rajindra Chandrika, whose Test debut against the Aussies in the Caribbean was marked by ducks in both innings, has also been retained. The Guyanese opener made his maiden first-class century in the first round of the WICB Professional Cricket League tournament that started on Friday.

The team will be travelling with head coach Phil Simmons who was reinstated to the squad today following a suspension over remarks he made in September critical of the selection of the team to tour Sri Lanka.

Squad: Jason Holder (captain), Kraigg Brathwaite (vice-captain), Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Rajindra Chandrika, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, Denesh Ramdin, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor, Jomel Warrican.

      Is there anyone currently in the Caribbean who is a better wicketkeeper/batsman than Ramdin?

      If there is, can you kindly name that person?

    Ramdin is not the problem, the WICB is the main problem. It should be laid to rest!
