West Indies squad now in Barbados

Published:Tuesday | May 21, 2013 | 10:22 AM

West Indies cricketers are now settled in Barbados to embark on a five-day camp at the High Performance Centre.



The squad is preparing for next month’s Champions Trophy in England.



The players currently plying their trade in the Indian Premier League (IPL) will miss the camp.



Ramnaresh Sarwan who is on contract with English County side Leicestershire will also miss the camp.



Jamaican stroke-maker Marlon Samuels, who returned home from the IPL with a groin strain last month, has recovered and is with the squad.



There will be a second camp in Cardiff Wales and the IPL-based players along with Sarwan are expected to be available.



West Indies will play two official warm-up games following the Wales camp. They face Australia in a day/night affair in Cardiff on June 1 before taking on Sri Lanka at Edgbaston three days later.



The Windies will do battle in Group B of the tournament alongside Pakistan, South Africa and India, with Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand and the hosts, comprising Group A.
