Uncapped Trinidad duo Jason Mohammed and Sunil Narine have been named in the West Indian One-Day International squad to play India.
A 15-man squad has been named for the five-match series, which gets underway on 30th November.
The 2011 CLOBI Cup organised by the Legends of Barbados, the Barbados Cricket Assocation and the Barbados Tourist Authority kicked off in fine style last night in front of a decent Friday night crowd at the Kensington Oval..
The competition which last year featured Masters teams from West Indies, India, Sri Lanka and England has now been cut to 2 teams.
The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has confirmed that Australia will tour for five One-Day Internationals, two Twenty20 Internationals and three Tests in March and April 2012.
Arnos Vale in Saint Vincent will host the opening three ODIs when the series gets underway on 16th March with Saint Lucia hosting the final two ODIs.
India have named an unchanged 15-man squad for the second Test against the West Indies, which gets underway at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on 14th November.
India came from behind to secure an impressive five-wicket win in the opening game in Delhi with VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar batting impressively on the final day.
Sachin Tendulkar fell short of his 100th international hundred but VVS Laxman closed on 61 not out to steer India to a five-wicket win over the West Indies in the opening Test in Delhi.
Tendulkar was trapped in front for 76 by leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo but he had done enough, along with Laxman, to put his side in position to take their first win in six matches, eventually closing on 276 for five in their second innings.
Former captain and current WICB Director Clive Lloyd says that the West Indies are moving in the right direction and will eventually be in a position to compete with the best sides in the world.
He was talking after they beat Bangladesh by 229 runs to seal a 1-0 series win - a first overseas since 2003 - in a game which saw young batsmen Kirk Edwards and Darren Bravo excel.
Devendra Bishoo bowled the West Indies to a first overseas series win since 2003 as they beat Bangladesh by 229 runs in the second and final Test in Dhaka.
Bishoo returned figures of five for 90 as Bangladesh were dismissed for 278, losing their last six wickets for just 22 runs in a disappointing collapse.
Opening batsman Adrian Barath has recovered from a hamstring injury and will take his place in the West Indies' 15-man Test squad to take on India.
Barath missed the two-match series in Bangladesh and his return comes at the expense of Lendl Simmons, the man who replaced him following the injury he picked up in the first One-Day International in Dhaka.
India have left middle-order batsman Suresh Raina and experienced off-spinner Harbhajan Singh out of their 15-man squad named to play the West Indies in the first Test from 6th November.
Harbhajan did not feature in the recent One-Day International series win over England and his place in the Test team will go to one of Pragyan Ojha, Ravi Ashwin or Rahul Sharma - the spinners who were named in the squad.
West Indies captain Darren Sammy expects his side to step up and show improvement during the second Test against Bangladesh.
Although two full days were lost to rain in the opening game in Chittagong, the West Indies were still put under severe pressure by the home side, ceding a first-innings lead and then losing two wickets in a final session when they were set 226 to win before the game was drawn.
Bangladesh and the West Indies drew the rain-affected opening Test in Chittagong but only after a declaration from the home side livened up the final session.
They declared their second innings on 119 for three to leave the West Indies a target of 226 in 37 overs but after Lendl Simmons was dismissed for 44, the West Indies ended their charge, eventually closing on 100 for two.
The West Indies have awarded 26 players retainer contracts for the 2011/12 season, increasing the number of contracted women to eight.
Batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul is the only man to be on a grade A contract while Fidel Edwards, Ravi Rampaul and Marlon Samuels have been given grade B contracts for the first time.
West Indian batsman Lendl Simmons has spoken of his delight in being added to the Test squad to take on Bangladesh following the withdrawal through injury of Adrian Barath.
He says he is aiming to carry over the good form he showed in the One-Day International series into the Test arena as he bids to 'cement' a spot at the top of the order.
In-form opening batsman Lendl Simmons has replaced Adrian Barath in the West Indies' Test squad ahead of the first game against Bangladesh.
Barath suffered a hamstring injury during the first One-Day International and has not recovered sufficiently to take his place in the Test squad.
Bangladesh have named a 14-man squad for the two-Test series against the West Indies which begins in Chittagong on 21st October.
Former captain Mohammad Ashraful, quick bowler Shafiul Islam and left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak have been left out of the squad which sees batsman Roqibul Hasan and all-rounder Naeem Islam recalled.
Bangladesh routed the West Indies, bowling them out for just 61, on their way to an eight-wicket win in the third and final One-Day International in Chittagong.
Shakib Al Hasan returned figures of four for 16 as the tourists lurched from 33 for one to their second-lowest ODI score before Bangladesh knocked off the runs with 30 overs to spare.
Cuttack, Vishakapatnam, Ahmedabad, Indore and Chennai will host India's five-match One-Day International series with the West Indies from 29th November to 11th December.
All five matches in the series will be day/night games and follow three Test matches in Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai.
The West Indies moved to an unassailable 2-0 series lead over Bangladesh as they won the second One-Day International in Dhaka by eight wickets.
They produced a second impressive performance of the series to bowl Bangladesh out for 220 and then make light of the run chase thanks to half-centuries from Marlon Samuels and Lendl Simmons.
Lendl Simmons stroked his maiden One-Day International century to help set up a 40-run win for the West Indies over Bangladesh in the first match in Dhaka.
Simmons made 122 and Marlon Samuels 71 as the tourists put in an impressive batting display to post 298 for four before Bangladesh were restricted to 258 for seven in reply.
