Sarwan And Ramdin In West Indian World Cup Squad
The West Indies have named their 30-man preliminary squad for the 2011 World Cup, with experienced pace bowlers Jerome Taylor and Fidel Edwards missing out as they continue to recover from injuries.
Batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan and wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin - who were both not named in the recently-cancelled One-Day International series in Sri Lanka, are named in the squad.
There are also places for leg-spinners Devendra Bishoo and Anthony Martin, fast bowler Jason Holder and batsman Jonathan Carter on the back of strong domestic performances.
Meanwhile, experienced batsman Ryan Hinds and fast bowler Tino Best are added to the squad which will be trimmed to 15 by 19th January.
The World Cup, held in Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka, gets underway on 19th February when co-hosts Bangladesh and India meet in Dhaka.
The West Indies are in a group alongside Bangladesh, England, the Netherlands, India, Ireland and South Africa, opening their campaign against the Proteas on 24th February in New Delhi.
