Fast bowlers Miguel Cummins and Sheldon Cotterrell and wicketkeeper Jahmar Hamilton are set to make their debuts for West Indies A when they take on a touring Sri Lanka A in June.

Cummins, 22, was instrumental in helping Barbados win the Regional Four-Day Tournament this season. He claimed 35 wickets at 14.77, with two nine-fors in three matches, the second of which was in the final.

Jamaica's Cotterrell, 23, has 35 wickets at first-class level and Hamilton, 22, has struck one century and five fifties for Leeward Islands.

All three players had featured in last year's Sagicor West Indies High Performance Centre squad.

The squad will be captained by Kirk Edwards.* The tour includes two four-day matches beginning on June 5 in St Kitts, two Twenty20s and three one-dayers.

Squad: Kraigg Brathwaite, Jonathan Carter, Sheldon Cotterrell, Miguel Cummins, Narsingh Deonarine, Kirk Edwards (capt), Assad Fudadin, Shannon Gabriel, Jahmar Hamilton, Leon Johnson, Nikita Miller, Veerasammy Permaul (vice-capt), Chadwick Walton

What happen to ronsford Beaton , he is a promising fast bowler as Ian Bishop said you need to nurture your good young fast bowlers . The selectors once again not doing that .

@ Rally_Windies. Such rubbish as was written by you should have never been published. Ironic you go on to say he is promising (shakes head). I just wish WI all the best!!! I support the WI and not any one country/player. Go Windies!!!

Cotterrell ?

Really ??

has he done enough to make the WI team ?

Oh I see , a Jamaican is president of WICB !

New president --- same stupidity of the last one ........ It only took 1 month and the New President has already become a disappointment ..

He promised he would be different ...

I harbor no ill feelings towards Cotterrell .. he is a promising player ....

but it is this type of nepotism which results in EXCELLENT players like Riddly Jacobs making their international debut as age 32 ....

It seems obvious to me that some are not following this cricket ! Which one of the selected would you say does not have a future in WI cricket ? [2] What is wrong with Kirk Edwards in the team ? One bad English tour should not exclude a player who has had the success which he had in such a short time . We seem to like players who start with 5 ducks in row to those who start with a record like his ---furthermore we cant pick only players from our own colony ; it's called WI .

Jason Holder is got to be in the team.He's got the height which can help to extract good bounce and seam movement.Devendra Bishoo is forgotten by by the selectors and they can think of giving him a oppurtunity in this team.They are playing in Sri Lanka where the pitches are known to assist spin and that can help him to bowl well.By this he could have a chance to put up a strong show and could be in reckoning for the national team selection.Also West Indies lack the calibre of his spin and Holder's height and bounce.These both could be a handful.

something is really wrong with westindies selector. Your A Team should not have any player above the age of 25yrs.That should be your farmsystem. Thats where your players should be coming from to replace anyone in your Test Team that is failing or Retiring. But the selectors continuing to select men who have no future in westindies Cricket in their A Team.Come on selectors you have to do a better job than that.
