ESPNcricinfo staff

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.
