Jonathan Foo, the Guyana batsman who starred in the Caribbean Twenty20 earlier this year, has been named in the West Indies A Twenty20 squad that will take on Pakistan A at home next month. Devendra Bishoo, the legspinner who topped the wickets chart in that tournament, has also been included. All-rounder David Bernard, who was part of the weakened West Indies team that played Bangladesh in 2009, will captain the side.

Foo helped Guyana snatch victory against Barbados in the nail-biting final of the domestic event, hitting a 17-ball 42 under immense pressure. A hard-hitting lower-order batsman, the 20-year-old is among a rare breed of West Indies cricketers with Chinese descent.

"The selection committee has identified this core group for Twenty20 cricket," Clyde Butts, chairman of the WICB selection committee said in a statement. "We are now looking forward to seeing how these players do on the next level up, how they respond to the pressures and the challenges."

The A tour beginning on November 3 consists of two Twenty20s, three one-day matches and two four-day games.

West Indies A Twenty20 squad: David Bernard (capt), Jason Holder, Miles Bascombe, Devendra Bishoo, Johnson Charles, Kirk Edwards, Andre Fletcher (wk), Jonathan Foo, Danza Hyatt, Nikita Miller, Ashley Nurse, Ravi Rampaul, Krishmar Santokie
