Young aggressive opener Trevon Griffith was also named in the squad, along with bowlers Veerasammy Permaul, Devendra Bishoo, Ronsford Beaton and Paul Wintz.

Meanwhile, the entire training squad of 26 players including fast-bowler Andre Stoll and the pugnacious Jonathan Foo will remain encamped until January 25.
