Australian Nash named in Jamaica squad

Brendan Nash, the former Queensland batsman who left Australia to restart his career in the Caribbean, has been named in Jamaica's 17-man squad for this season's forthcoming KFC Cup.

Nash is eligible to play for Jamaica as his father, Paul, is of Jamaican origin, having represented the country as an Olympic swimmer. Nash is joined by two new faces in the squad: Donovan Sinclair and Krishmar Santokie, the left-arm fast bowler.

Chris Gayle leads the strong side which includes Daren Powell, Jerome Taylor and Marlon Samuels.

David Bernard, Xavier Marshall and Donovan Pagon, who have all played for the West Indies, have been left out, as has Dwight Washington.
