West Indies have trimmed their ODI squad for the upcoming three-match series against England from 15 to 13, leaving out Shane Dowrich and Miguel Cummins from the group that has been training in Antigua with new coach Stuart Law.

Dowrich, the 25-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman, has played eight Tests but is yet to make his ODI debut. His exclusion leaves Shai Hope as the lone specialist wicketkeeper in West Indies' squad. Fast bowler Cummins has played two ODIs, most recently in a defeat to Zimbabwe in Bulawayo in November, during a tri-series that also involved Sri Lanka.

The first two ODIs will be played in Antigua on March 3 and 5, followed by the final match in Barbados on March 9.

West Indies ODI squad: Jason Holder (capt), Devendra Bishoo, Carlos Brathwaite, Kraigg Brathwaite, Jonathan Carter, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope (wk), Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Ashley Nurse, Kieran Powell, Rovman Powell.

    @metman.... I can clearly see that you are confuse or you are just lacking the basic cricketing knowledge. firstly kraigg was brought into the the odi side simply because of his consistency nothing else, hope was brought into the odi team because of his list A stats. his tests record is nothing short of underwhelming and dorwich was dropped from the odi team although he had a decent outing with the test side but his list A stats is terrible. so what does that tell you?? not that because he failed in the list A games he was dropped?? so how on earth could you say that a player is selected in the shorter format based on his longer format credentials ???

    Good. They should not have been picked in the first place. Let them focus on red-ball cricket with the Regional 4-day continuing soon.

    @Metman u clearly don't know how squads are selected lol

    @johnny865..big man ...stating FC records is comparing them with List A records ? how did you arrive at that ?man you does arrive at some mind boggling conclusions day in and day out. Johnny whatever no. you at now ?..listen ...List A records are NOT ONLY ONE DAY RECORDS..it CONSISTS of ONE DAYS so YOU are using other stats to boost your argument about List A averages,but then again you didn't know as usual. However,most players in the WI are selected for ODIs based on their 4 day performances like Kraigg,Hope,Dowrich to name a few and Cornwall is in the brew BECAUSE of his 4 day performances over the last year or so.

    @mekkayel.... exactly my point pollard averages 25 after 101 games, so don't you think that if he plays more games his average would also go up ?? or is it that your logic only applies to carter for his average only to get higher after playing more games. also any right thinking person can see that pollard had lots of potential whereas carter's potential is limited...

    Thank God for dropping those 2 which must have been a coach's decision, so Law is now on thin ice for dropping the bajans. Dowrich,Cummins and Carter are all poor performers and should never have been picked. Hopefully the coach Law will have enough sense to give Rovman, Powell, Mohammed and Lewis some chances. Good luck to Jimmy Adams for speaking his mind and wanting the best players- hopefully the demagogue 'wanna be Trump' Dave Cameron does not fire him, like he did to Simmons and the other good players...smh..

    @johnny I have already stated that Carter has only played 17 ODIs. a lot of good players have started their careers slowly. do you know what Chris Gayle's average was during the first two years of his ODI career when he played 20 games? or a more recent example - Ben stokes in the first 24 games he's played only scored 1 half century and averaged 16 over 3 years. do you understand what I am saying or do you need someone break it down in 1 sentence for you to understand?

    @mekkayel... I can clearly see that u have now run out of things to say. you are just rambling yoyr mouth now. and if pollard record is mediocre for any team then that means carter's record is nothing short of abysmal . so once again try and talk something useful

    come Friday whatever the final 11 is. the team needs to work together and go hard at england. we have the ammunition to compete with england. the team needs to concentrate and give their best for their fans. we have seen too much of a downward trend with west indies cricket. so we need a good start from kiron Powell and evin lewis and send england,on the defensive. come on west indies. let's prove a point to the world

  • Cricinfouser on March 1, 2017, 15:32 GMT

    that's a bad move to leave out Shane dowrich out of the team. we all know what kind of talent he has . let's hope shai hope can cover his ground.
