All-rounder Darren Sammy will lead the 15-member West Indies cricket team for the upcoming tour of India,starting next month.

During the tour,West Indies will play two Test matches from November 6-10 and November 14-18. Apart from the Tests,the series will also feature three One-Day Internationals to be held on November 21,24 and 27,the venues of which are yet to be announced.

Edwards returns

The 15-member squad includes as many as seven players — Kirk Edwards,Kieron Powell,Sheldon Cottrell,Narsingh Deonarine,Veerasammy Permaul,Shane Shillingford and Chadwick Walton — from the West Indies A side which is presently touring India.

A spokesman for the West Indies Cricket Board,however,said that left-arm pacer Sheldon Cottrell will be available for the series only after passing a fitness test conducted by the WICB’s medical panel.

Cottrell,who has been with the West Indies A squad since they arrived in India for the ongoing tour that consisted of three one-dayers,a one-off T20 and three unofficial Test matches,didn’t feature in even one match so far due to a shoulder stress injury.

WI Squad: Darren Sammy (captain),Tino Best,Darren Bravo,Shivnarine Chanderpaul,Sheldon Cottrell,Narsingh Deonarine,Kirk Edwards,Chris Gayle,Veerasammy Permaul,Kieron Powell,Denesh Ramdin,Kemar Roach,Marlon Samuels,Shane Shillingford,Chadwick Walton (wicketkeeper).
