CRICKET: Bonner named to Windies A Team
Jamaican batsman Nkrumah Bonner is among four players called up for the West Indies A team’s three-match one-day tour of Sri Lanka, starting next month.
West Indies' selectors named Bonner, along with left-handed stroke-maker Jonathan Carter, off-spinner Ashley Nurse and fast bowler Ronsford Beaton, to join the bulk of the squad already in Sri Lanka for the ongoing series.
The four new players will replace Jamaican left-arm seamer Sheldon Cottrell, leg spinner Devendra Bishoo, off-spinner Shane Shillingford and batsman Kirk Edwards who heads home when the four-day series concludes.
Bonner is one of three Jamaicans in the one-day squad.
The other Jamaican players are Jermaine Blackwood, Nikita Miller and wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton.
Current captain, Carlos Brathwaite, will continue to lead the side.
West Indies A bowls off the one-day tour on November 1 in Dambulla before playing matches in Kurunegala on November 3 and Colombo two days later.
They currently trail the three-match Test series 1-0, after losing the first game in Hambantota by ten wickets and drawing the second in Matara.
The third four-day Test bowls off on Saturday in Moratuwa.
Other members of the squad are: Sunil Ambris, Kraigg Brathwaite, Jonathan Carter, Miguel Cummins, Andre Fletcher, Assad Fudadin, Shannon Gabriel and Ashley Nurse.
