ESPNcricinfo staff

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
