ST JOHN’S, Antigua, CMC – Two new players have been called up to the West Indies Under-19 squad for the Quadrangular series in India, starting at month end.
Trinidadian Emmanuel Lett and Akeal Hosein, who impressed during the recent youth tournament in Guyana, were Thursday named in a 15-man squad to be led by Barbadian Kraigg Brathwaite.
The right handed Lett slammed a tournament-high 187 retired hurt against the Leeward Islands in the three-day phase while Hosein, also a left-hander, was also consistent with the bat and his useful off-spin.
Aggressive Jamaican opener John Campbell has been included in the squad that includes all-rounder Donovan Nelson and impressive Windward Islands all-rounder Kavem Hodge.
Marquino Mindley, Bryan Gayle, Chanderpaul Hemraj and Larry Edwards, who were part of the 19-man training squad in Barbados recently, missed out on the trip.
West Indies Under-19s will play against hosts India, Sri Lanka and Australia in the tournament that runs from September 27 to October 9.
Squad: Kraigg Brathwaite (captain), Anthony Alleyne, Sunil Ambris, Ronsford Beaton, John Campbell, Derone Davis, Justin Greaves, Kavem Hodge, Akeal Hosein, Jerome Jones, Steven Katwaroo, Amir Khan, Emmanuel Lett, Kyle Mayers, Donovan Nelson.
