Published on February 14, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- The West Indies Cricket Board announced on Thursday that its Selection Panel has named 13-member squads for a brief series against ICC Associate nation Ireland.

The series comprises two Twenty20 Internationals and a One-day International to be staged later this month at Sabina Park in the Jamaica capital of Kingston.

Kieron Pollard was not considered for selection to either side due to injury. He continues his rehabilitation following a knee injury sustained late last year.

Santokie and Smith have been recalled, after playing the last of their T20Is almost two years ago.

Santokie last appeared in a T20I against Australia in March 2012 at the Beausejour Cricket Ground in St. Lucia, and Smith last played against Bangladesh in December that year at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Dhaka.

Darren Sammy has overcome a hamstring injury that sidelined him for the preceding two T20Is on the tour of New Zealand last month and returns to the line-up to captain the side.

Also making a return following injury are opener Chris Gayle, fast bowler Ravi Rampaul and batsman Marlon Samuels.

On the ODI side, fast bowler Miguel Cummins has been selected for a senior West Indies side for the first time ever and is the only uncapped player.

Darren Bravo and Sammy, both of whom were restricted to one appearance apiece in the ODIs on the tour of New Zealand over the Christmas/New Year’s period, have been selected, while Gayle and Samuels have also returned following injury.

The team management unit has also been boosted with the addition of Saqlain Mushtaq.

The legendary Pakistan off-spinner conducted a spin bowling clinic with a number of established and promising spinners in the Caribbean last year, and has joined the team management unit to fortify this area that has become critical in the side’s armoury.
