Denesh Ramdin, the 19-year-old wicketkeeper from Trinidad, is the only new face in the West Indian squad that was chosen for the Sri Lankan tour, starting on July 15.

Ramdin has played only 13 first-class matches and managed one hundred and two fifties. Ramdin's inclusion meant that Courtney Browne, who kept wicket in the recent series against South Africa and Pakistan, was left out of the squad and was one of the two notable absentees along with Reon King, the fast bowler.

The West Indies board also said that two more players will be added from the West Indies A squad which left for Sri Lanka on Friday. The 13-member West Indian squad is scheduled to leave on July 1 and will play two Tests and a triangular one-day tournament involving Sri Lanka and India.

The West Indies board has also issued the invitations as well as match/tour contracts to the players and asked the players to indicate their agreement by June 21.

Squad
Ian Bradshaw, Dwayne Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul (capt), Pedro Collins, Corey Collymore, Fidel Edwards, Chris Gayle, Wavell Hinds, Brian Lara, Darren Powell, Denesh Ramdin (wkt), Ramnaresh Sarwan, Devon Smith, plus two players from West Indies A.
