GROS ISLET, Saint Lucia – The Cricket West Indies Selection Panel has announced the 14-member squad for the third match of the CG Insurance T20 International (T20I) Series against Australia. The match will be played under lights at the Daren Sammy Cricket Stadium (DSCG) on Monday, July 12 with the first ball at 7:30pm (6:30pm Jamaica Time).
Fast bowler Oshane Thomas has been named in the match-day squad. He comes in for Fidel Edwards who is unavailable due to a tricep injury sustained in the second CG Insurance T20I. West Indies lead the five-match CG Insurance Series 2-0. They had a superb win by 18 runs last Friday night followed by an impressive 56-run triumph on Saturday night.
Roger Harper, Lead Selector said:
“Fidel Edwards has an injury to his arm so Oshane Thomas has been drafted into the squad and will provide that extra bit of pace. The aim is still to win the series while providing opportunities for all players in the provisional squad to showcase their skills.”
This CG Insurance T20I Series forms part of the West Indies’ T20 World Cup preparation with a total of 15 T20Is to be played across three months in the build-up to the ICC T20 World Cup which is being staged in the United Arab Emirates and Oman from October 17 to November 14.
