Lucian for Windies squad

The West Indies selectors have named a squad of 15 for the NatWest One-Day International Series involving New Zealand and the hosts England, which begins on June 24.
The squad carries the surprise inclusion of St. Lucian Darren Sammy who represented both the Windward islands and the West Indies Under-19 squads with creditable performances. {{more}}He is only the second St. Lucian ever to have been called up to play for the West Indies and may well become the first to actually play for the team as his predecessor Charles never took the field of play.
Following is the squad: Brian Lara (Capt), Ramnaresh Sarwan, Christopher Gayle, Devon Smith, Ricardo Powell, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Dwayne Smith, Dwayne Bravo, Darren Sammy, Ridley Jacobs, Carlton Baugh (Jr), Ian Bradshaw, Ravi Rampaul, Tino Best, Fidel Edwards.
