by May 18th, 2019

Jamaican opener John Campbell and hard-hitting Trinidadian all-rounder Kieron Pollard has been named on a ten man reserve list of players for the West Indies team for the upcoming ICC World Cup which starts at the end of this month in England and Wales.

Dwayne Bravo is also on the list along with Sunil Ambris, Johnathan Carter, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich, Keemo Paul, Khary Pierre and Raymond Reifer.

In the meantime Ambris and Reifer will join the West Indies four-day training camp which starts in Southampton on Sunday as the Windies continue their preparation for the marquee tournament.

They were part of the just-concluded Tri-Nation ODI Series in Ireland. Ambris is available as cover for Evin Lewis, who has recently recovered from a viral infection and Reifer will cover for the bowling group as part of work load management.

The four-day camp, involving the entire 15-man squad for the World Cup will include an additional warm-up fixture against Australia on Wednesday at the Ageas Bowl, the home of Hampshire County Cricket Club.

The original West Indies schedule was based in Bristol from May 23, with two official ICC Cricket World Cup warm-up matches on May 26 against South Africa and on May 28 versus New Zealand.

The West Indies opening ICC Cricket World Cup match is against Pakistan May 31 at Trent Bridge.
