West Indies heads for Zimbabwe

West Indies is gearing up for the upcoming Tri-Nations Series in Zimbabwe, involving the hosts and Sri Lanka later this month.

The One-Day International squad, which was recently selected, comprised eight players who were part of the Test series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates.

Captain Jason Holder, will lead the 15-man squad, which runs from Nov. 14–27.

Wicket-keeper and batsman Denesh Ramdin, dropped for the recent Test series against Indian and Pakistan has also been left out of the squad for the Tri-Nation Series.

Recently, West Indies beat Pakistan for their first win in 19 months and first on foreign soil in four years.

New bowling coach Roddy Estwick said the victory would be a huge boost for the side as they prepare for the Tri-Nations Series.

West Indies will enter the Tri-Nations Series ranked ninth in the world, with Sri Lanka in sixth place and Zimbabwe down at number 11.

The last time Windies met Sri Lanka in an ODI series a year ago, they suffered a 3–0 whitewash, on what was described as a difficult tour of the sub-continent.

West Indies will open their Tri-Nations Series campaign against Sri Lanka on Nov. 16.
