Director of Cricket Windies, Jimmy Adams
Accordingly, Director of Cricket Windies, Jimmy Adams took it as conditioning camp in the relative condition, “The selection panel consisted of interim Head Coach Floyd Reifer, Captain Jason Holder and interim Chairman of Selectors Robert Haynes. They have selected a squad to Ireland that allows a slightly wider pool of players to get 50-over experience in UK conditions which I think is very important. This is not the World Cup squad, as a number of players are not available for this series as they are still participating in the IPL”
Former leg-spinner and Windies Cricket Official Haynes took it positively, “We are immediately implementing the new policy of having the best West Indies team selected based on availability, form, and fitness. The pace attack of Shannon Gabriel, Kemar Roach and Jason Holder will only serve to enhance the performances we expect from the team.”
Shanon Gabriel recalled in the squad
Shanon Gabriel recalled in the squad. Therefore, he played for Windies as a pacer and bats in the middle-order position. Despite he played his last ODI on Windies jersey but recalled in the team for good performances. The 30 years old Windies pacer played 43 ODI and 18 tests but picked 129 and 23 wickets receptively with an average of 29 and 34. Hope this right-hander will flash again on the national team jersey.
