ST JOHNS, Antigua:

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) today announced the West Indies Under-19 squad to participate in the upcoming Regional Super 50 Tournament.

The 14-member squad includes five players who were part of the team which won the ICC Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh last year.

These are all-rounders Shamar Springer and Keemo Paul; middle-order batsman Kirstan Kallicharan; wicket-keeper-batsman Emmanuel Stewart; and left-arm fast bowler Obed McCoy.

The West Indies Under-19s will play in Zone A, which is based in Antigua. They will play alongside defending champions Trinidad & Tobago Red Force, Windward Islands Volcanoes, Kent Spitfire and host team Leeward Islands Hurricanes.
