Former West Indies Under-19 batsman Brandon King has been added to Jamaica Franchise's 13-man squad for their sixth round West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Professional Cricket League Four-Day clash against Windward Islands Volcanoes.



The contest will take place at Arnos Vale, St Vincent.



The 20-year-old King, who represented the region at last year's International Cricket Council (ICC) Youth World Cup, replaces batsman Shacaya Thomas.



Thomas has played Jamaica's first four matches.



However, he was dropped for the fifth-round encounter against Guyana Jaguars at Sabina Park last weekend.



He has been experiencing average returns.



Jamaica went down to a 105-run defeat to Jaguars at Sabina Park.



Jamaica, following three wins and a loss, are currently third in the points standings on 53 points after the completion of five of the tournament's ten rounds of matches.



Guyana lead with 75 points ahead of defending champions Barbados Pride on 60.
