Commenting on the squad, Chairman of the CWI Selection Panel, Courtney Browne said: “The squad builds on our last President’s XI squad which played against England earlier this year with Jahmar Hamilton retained as captain.

“Players coming into the square are those to replace the players that have moved up to the senior team or those that are not available at this time.”

He added: “Our ‘A’ Team programme is a stepping stone to our senior team and the panels want to encourage players to focus on consistent performances.

“With a full year of One-day International matches coming up next year, including the ICC World Cup qualifiers next March in Zimbabwe, this is another opportunity, along with the Regional Super50 Cup next January, for players to present themselves for any places available in the senior team.”
