After being axed from Jamaica’s side form the recent West Indies Cricket Board President’s Cup, Tamar Lambert has been named in a 24-man squad to begin preparation for next year’s regional four-day tournament.

Lambert, who has led Jamaica in recent years in the absence of West Indies captain Chris Gayle, was named along with several discarded Test players including Daren Powell, Xavier Marshall and Carlton Baugh.

Selectors have named several young players in the training squad, with West Indies Under-19 batsman Horace Miller, Melbourne’s John-Ross Campbell, Westmoreland wicketkeeper Maverick Perry and St Ann pace bowler Ricardo Dacres included.

The 19-year-old Campbell is one of two new faces in the trial squad with 23-year-old Manchester batsman Zeniffe Fowler also penciled in.

Predictably, the West Indies trio of Gayle, Brendan Nash and Jerome Taylor have not been included because of their duties with the senior squad in Australia.

The four-day season is scheduled to bowl off in January.
