BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- West Indies players Marlon Samuels and Kemar Roach have been named in the Sagicor West Indies High Performance Centre squad to play against Zimbabwe this week.

The three-day contest will be played from Thursday to Saturday at the Desmond Haynes Oval at the Carlton Cricket Club complex and will be a minimum of 90 overs per day. The teams will be allowed to use 13-players-per-side with 11 allowed to bat. First ball is 10 am (9 am Jamaica Time).

Samuels and Roach are listed in the Top 20 of the International Cricket Council’s Test rankings. Roach, the 24-year-old new ball bowler, is at Number 12 in the bowling while Samuels, the experienced middle-order batsman, is at Number 18 in the batting.

Zimbabwe will use the match as a warm-up for the upcoming two-Test Series against the West Indies.
