scheduled tribe. JOHNS, Antigua ( Associated Press) — Batter Kesey Carty has become the first St Maarten’s player to be selected for the West Indies.
Carty and pacers Jaden Seals and Shermon Lewis were on Monday selected in the West Indies’ first One Day International squad for short tours to the Netherlands and Pakistan. Seals and Lewis, however, have played at Test level.
Jason Holder, Shimron Hetmyer and Evin Lewis were not considered for selection. Holder is being rested to manage his workload, Hetmyer is home to the birth of his first child, and Lewis doesn’t meet the fitness criteria.
Carty, 25, scored 57 and 49 in a Test warmup game for CWI President’s XI against England in March.
“We were impressed by Carty and the way he approaches his innings,” chief selector Desmond Haynes said in a statement. “We saw many glimpses of his potential the way he played for the CWI President’s XI against England. We hope he recognizes the importance of representing West Indies by giving him this opportunity. We think he is a young batsman who has big promises and can show the kind of tour he fits into.”
West Indies and Netherlands will meet in Amstelveen on 31 May, 2 June and 4 June for their first ODI series. Rawalpindi will host Pakistan ODIs on June 8, 10 and 12.
West Indies: Nicholas Pooran (Captain), Shai Hope, Nkrumah Bonner, Shamar Brooks, Keesey Carty, Akil Hossein, Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Shermon Lewis, Kyle Meyers, Anderson Phillip, Rovman Powell, Jaden Seals, Romario Shepherd, Hayden Walsh. Junior
