Injuries force three changes to WI squad for first two ODIs against England

Bridgetown, Barbados, February 16 - (www.bcacricket.org) –Due to injuries, three changes have been made to the West Indies 14-man squad for the first two One-Day Internationals against England at Kensington Oval on February 20 and 22.

Opener John Campbell, all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite and left-arm fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell have replaced Evin Lewis, Rovman Powell and Keemo Paul.

It is a maiden call-up for Campbell in white-ball cricket. The 25-year-left-hander, who also bowls off-spin, made his Test debut in the recent Wisden Trophy Series, which West Indies won 2-1. He scored 176 runs (average 35.2) in the three matches.

Brathwaite has played three Tests, 28 ODIs and 35 Twenty20 Internationals, while Cottrell has appeared in two Tests, six ODIs and 10 T20 Internationals.

Chairman of Selectors, Courtney Browne said the upcoming five-match series is a vital part of the preparations for the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup to be played in England and Wales from May 31 to July 15.  

“With our squad suffering from a few players with injuries even before a ball is bowled, an opportunity presents itself for other players to make a claim for ICC Cricket World Cup spots. After a good showing as an opener in the Test matches, John Campbell – a fearless and attacking opening batter – will replace Evin Lewis who had to be withdrawn from the squad with a groin injury,” Browne said. 

“Carlos Brathwaite who last played in the ICC World Cup qualifiers and who was a replacement in the last ODI series in Bangladesh will also join the squad along with Sheldon Cottrell who last played against Bangladesh last year in the Caribbean. They will replace Rovman Powell and Keemo Paul who are also both sidelined with injuries. The panel take this opportunity to wish the injured players a speedy recovery and to wish the team success in the upcoming ODIs.”

Squad: Jason Holder (captain), Fabian Allen, Devendra Bishoo, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, John Campbell, Sheldon Cottrell, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Ashley Nurse, Nicholas Pooran, Kemar Roach, Oshane Thomas.
