Strong West Indies A squad to tour Bangladesh
West Indies A have named a strong squad for their tour of Bangladesh, which includes two first-class games and a tri-series also involving South Africa A. Five players with international experience - Adrian Barath, Brendan Nash, Darren Bravo, Gavin Tonge and Lionel Baker - have been added to the squad which hosted the Zimbabweans till yesterday.
"The team played very well in the four-day match and the two T20 matches against Zimbabwe in Grenada," West Indies A coach Henderson Springer said. "This tour of Bangladesh is another opportunity for these young men to build on what they started.
"We will have some players joining the team who have already played at the international level - Nash, Barath, Bravo, Tonge and Baker - and the team will be able to benefit from their experience and knowledge. I am sure everyone will be trying to create an impression and get elevation to the highest level of the game."
The tour begins on May 4 with the tri-series at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah. West Indies A will stay back after the final on May 15 to play two four-day games against the hosts at the Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protisthan in Savar. The first game begins on May 15 while the second starts on the 21st.
