The West Indies selectors have picked several players with international experience in the 13-man A squad for the three-match one-day series against India A in Grenada. Batsmen Adrian Barath, Kirk Edwards and Assad Fudadin, all of whom played for West Indies in the recent Test series in England, have been selected, and so has left-arm spinner Nikita Miller.

Miller, who last played for West Indies in the 2011 World Cup, was preferred over Sulieman Benn, who was Man of the Match in the first of the two Twenty20s against India A last week. Fast bowler Nelon Pascal, another international, was also drafted in.

Veerasammy Permaul, who led West Indies A in the Tests against India A, returned to the squad to take over the captaincy from Kieran Powell, who did the duty during the Twenty20s.

Wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich was called up as a replacement for Devon Thomas, who was ruled out with a knee injury.

West Indies A won the three-match unofficial Test series against India A 2-1, while the Twenty20s were tied 1-1. The first one-dayer will be played on June 27.

West Indies A squad: Veerasammy Permaul (capt), Adrian Barath, Nkrumah Bonner, Jonathan Carter, Shane Dowrich (wk), Kirk Edwards, Assad Fudadin, Jason Holder, Delorn Johnson, Nikita Miller, Jason Mohammed, Nelon Pascal, Kieran Powell.

  • SNIFFLEATHER on June 27, 2012, 23:32 GMT

    Good effort to pull through at the end of another close fought contest between these two sides. Well done Windies 'A', now win the next one and the job is as good as done. Some talented young players coming through, bodes well with guys like Johnson, Holder, McLean, Bishoo to strengthen the bowling department, and Edwards, Powell and Barath will develop given time.

  • rayinto on June 27, 2012, 17:34 GMT

    Agree with Ras 10 - the C team looks like it could challenge and beat the A team.

  • MysticMan on June 27, 2012, 15:56 GMT

    Winning the toss and electing to bat first, India A are 125-4 in 35.2 overs. Rahane just got out, stumped off Miller for 58. Tiwary n. o. 7

  • gloriouscricket on June 27, 2012, 15:43 GMT

    Lets stop bickering as to whom should be cpt. Versammy Paul has done a good job; He gets my support. He has done an excellent job. Kirk needs to regain his confidence, he just endured a horrible tour, he needed to be relieved of the VCpt. position to concentrate on his form.I,m looking forward to to see the fast bowlers perform under pressure; I,m also looking to see Barath, Edwards Bonner ,Dowrich & Co. India has a strong team, this series is a turning point in Windies cricket. We have to win, This is a series Cpt. Sammy,s WI need to win.

  • on June 27, 2012, 8:15 GMT

    Edwards is the same as sammy no captaincy skill. Permaul is a far better captain than both of them so i dont kno ppls think its stange that permaul is the captain ahead of edwards

  • sweetiepaper on June 27, 2012, 3:47 GMT

    No Benn, No Bishoo? Hope they are being considered for the senior team. West Indies selector need to awake from there four fast bowlers era dream and play two spinners in the 1st 11 team. So much good spinners going to waste. Depending on form and wickets I cant see why we cant have any two from this bunch playing (Narine, Shillingford, Benn, Miller, Bishoo) Plus Badree (shorter forms), Permaul and Kantasingh. Our faster bowlers are not match winners.

  • on June 27, 2012, 2:12 GMT

    west indies cricket is bad

  • on June 27, 2012, 1:04 GMT

    you cant be captain because of your name and because you were vice captain or play for west indies.I think permaul is a better captain than sammy and they should switch places..

  • avmd on June 27, 2012, 0:59 GMT

    Lets beat Indians again. They might be a financial power in cricket but on field they will end up in bottom of the ranking in a year or two, once the great Tendulkar and co left. Send them home beaten and bruised. I'm not happy the way they are trying to influence and destroy cricket, except t20.

  • honorejr on June 26, 2012, 23:49 GMT

    why arent these games carried live..... we in the caribbean would love to follow these games on tv

  • mus_tard on June 26, 2012, 22:06 GMT

    Edwards had a horrible tour to England and should not be put as captain as it may be a burden to him. this is a chance to regain his confidence without any outside pressures before NZ comes. Also, Permaul is always captain of the A team

  • gtzshotta on June 26, 2012, 21:30 GMT

    Agreed Kirk should be captain.

  • Dav1daKing on June 26, 2012, 21:22 GMT

    West indies can probably have an A, B and C teams that are so strong on paper, just imagine the players who isn't in the national side nor the A team. The likes of Sarwan, Nash, Carlos Brathwaite, A. Richardson, S. Cotterell, O. Brown, J. Taylor, D. Bernard Jr, S, Gabriel, devon smith, devon thomas, andre fletcher, etc

  • on June 26, 2012, 19:02 GMT

    Why isn't Edwards the capt of the WI"A" team? After all, wasn't he the vice capt of the WI team, led by Sammy. Strange? However, this is not a bad squad.

  • MasudRUETeee091040 on June 26, 2012, 17:29 GMT

    West Indies A will be more powerful after including new players.
