Denesh Ramdin, the Trinidad and Tobago wicketkeeper who was cut from the West Indies contract list, will get a chance to work on his batting flaws under the supervision of former West Indies opening batsman Gordon Greenidge.

Ramdin lost his central contract following "less than favourable" performances over the past year, prompting the T&T board to arrange for him to work with Greenidge. Ramdin averaged 15.75 in Tests during 2010, over seven runs below his career average, and his performances weren't up to the mark in the shorter versions either.

T&T selector Rangy Nanan said Ramdin "needs some assistance at this point in time and they don't want to forsake him. He has talent but something is not going right with his batting and the board thinks that he can play much better than what we are seeing at present."

Lendl Simmons, the aggressive opener who has fallen out of favour with the selectors, will also train under Greenidge. Simmons was one of West Indies' most impressive performers in the 2009 World Twenty20, making 150 runs at 30.00 and taking six wickets. However, he was dumped for the 2010 edition, following the appointment of Ottis Gibson as coach, and has been overlooked for international duty and developmental A tours since then.
