Permaul lone Guyanese in Windies One Day squad

— Kieron Pollard named vice captain

ST JOHN’S, Bangladesh,  CMC – Wicketkeeper Devon Thomas is one of six new players called up for the West Indies limited overs tour of Bangladesh, starting November 30.

Kieron Pollard

The 23-year-old was yesterday named in a 15-man squad for the series which comprises five One-Day Internationals and a single Twenty20.

Thomas last played for West Indies during the last two ODIs against New Zealand in July when he replaced regular gloveman Denesh Ramdin who was getting married in his homeland Trinidad and Tobago.

Prior to that, he had not played in maroon colours for over a year, following his outing in last year’s World Cup on the Asian subcontinent.

He will replace Ramdin who was named for the two-Test series but not retained for the limited overs phase of the tour.

Thomas joins fit-again pacer Kemar Roach, exciting all-rounder Andre Russell, openers Lendl Simmons and Dwayne Smith, and the big-hitting Kieron Pollard who has been named as captain Darren Sammy’s deputy.

Veerasammy Permaul

Ramdin, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Narsingh Deonarine, Fidel Edwards, Kirk Edwards and Assad Fudadin will return home following the second Test which bowls off Wednesday.

Experienced all-rounder Dwayne Bravo remains injured and was not considered for selection.

SQUAD – Darren Sammy (captain), Kieron Pollard (vice captain), Tino Best, Darren Bravo, Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Veerasammy Permaul, Kieran Powell, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith, Devon Thomas.
