West Indies have named left-handed opening batsman Omar Phillips as replacement for Adrian Barath for West Indies A's upcoming tour of Bangladesh.

Barath, who made a memorable century against Australia on his Test debut last November, withdrew from the tour with an injured right knee and will remain in Trinidad to do rehabilitation work.

Phillips, 23, plays for the Combined Campuses & Colleges and had a similarly promising start to his Test career last July, albeit against lesser opposition. He made 94 against Bangladesh at St Vincent when many first-choice West Indies players were missing due to the contract dispute.

The tour begins on May 4 with the tri-series at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah.
