Under-19 squad chosen

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Selection Panel has named a 15-member Under-19 squad for tours of South Africa and Zimbabwe next month.

The tours are being undertaken as part of the Windies Under-19s build up to the ICC Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand from Jan. 12 to Feb. 4 next year.

Windies Under 19 are the defending champions, having won their first title in February, 2016 in Bangladesh under the captaincy of Shiron Hetmyer.

Hetmyer got his first call to the West Indies senior team for the recent Pakistan tour of the Caribbean.

Vice-captain for the tour is Kisrtan Kallicharan, who was also drafted for the Pakistan tour but failed with the bat.

They were members of the World Cup-winning squad last year.
