Shivnarine Chanderpaul, West Indies' most-capped Test cricketer, will play for St Kitts when they take on the touring Bangladeshis in a three-day tour game beginning tomorrow (30th August).

Chanderpaul, a veteran of 156 Tests, will play as a guest player for St Kitts in the match, which is Bangladesh's only warm-up ahead of a two-Test series against the West Indies.

Meanwhile, 23-year-old Montserattian fast bowler Quinton Boatswain - a graduate of the Sagicor West Indies High Performance Centre - is also included in the St Kitts squad.

The first West Indies-Bangladesh Test begins in St Vincent on 5th September.

The West Indies secured a 3-0 ODI series win over the tourists before the one-off Twenty20 International was abandoned due to rain.

St Kitts: Jacques Taylor (captain), Elvin Berridge, Shino Berridge, Quinton Boatswain, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Jaeel Clarke (wicket-keeper), Tristan Handley, Javal Hodge, Shane Jeffers, Jeremiah Lewis, Shaquille Martina, Terrence Ward, Tonito Willett
