West Indian internationals Adrian Barath, Devon Thomas and Chadwick Walton will play for the UWI Vice-Chancellor's XI in a one-day warm-up game against England on 25th February.

The 50-over game will be England's only warm-up match before they play the West Indies in three One-Day Internationals and three Twenty20 Internationals.

The team will be captained by 25-year-old Steven Jacobs, captain of the Combined Colleges and Campuses side.

Jacobs is an off-spinning all-rounder who represented the West Indies at Under-19 level.

Opening batsman Barath has played 15 Tests, 14 ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals but has not played international cricket since 2012.

Experienced wicket-keepers Thomas (21 ODIs, three T20Is) and Walton (two Tests, five ODIs and two T20Is) are joined in the squad by Kyle Corbin, who has also donned the gloves for the CCC side as well as West Indies Under-19s.

The Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua will host the match.

University of West Indies Vice-Chancellor's XI: Steven Jacobs (captain), Nicolas Alexis, Adrian Barath, Jonathan Carter, Kyle Corbin, Miguel Cummins, Akeem Dewar, Paul Palmer, Raymon Reifer, Dawayne Sealy, Devon Thomas, Chadwick Walton
