BACK IN BUSINESS: Jomel Warrican has been recalled to the West Indies' Test squad. (GP)

ST JOHN’S – Left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican and opening batsman Sunil Ambris have been recalled but there is no room in the West Indies’ 15-man cricket squad to tour India in October for stylish “A” Barbados Pride batsman, Shamarh Brooks.

Warrican and Ambris have been selected to replace fast bowler Miguel Cummins and seasoned opener Devon Smith, who both had disappointing performances in the recently concluded series against Sri Lankaand Bangladesh.

The regional team will play two Test matches at Rajkot (October 4-8) and Hyderabad (October 12-16) against the Virat Kohli-led Indian outfit.

Uncapped wicketkeeper/batsman Jahmar Hamilton, who was chosen for the home Tests against Sri Lanka but was unable to force his way into the starting 11 following an excellent series by first choice gloveman Shane Dowrich, has been surprisingly namedin the squad. (ES)
