Cricket West Indies (CWI) has confirmed in a media release that bowling coach Roddy Estwick has been moved from his post. It was first reported by the Trinidad Guardian on Tuesday.
Cricket West Indies has introduced a new system of different contracts for Test and limited-overs international players, effective from July 1. The system will have three categories: all-format contracts, red-ball contracts, and white-ball contracts.
Only five players - Jason Holder, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Devendra Bishoo - have been contracted for all formats, while six have been given red-ball contracts and five others white-ball contracts.
Following threatening comments from Dave Cameron, president of Cricket West Indies (CWI) on TVJ on Thursday that T&T’s Darren Bravo, Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard, together with Jamaican all-rounder Andre Russell, may never play for the regional side again, former one-day captain Dwayne Brave has responded. Yesterday, on I95.5FM, Dwayne Bravo, the elder brother of Darren Bravo, speaking with sports commentator Andre Errol Baptiste stated clearly, “I still want to play for the West Indies and never said otherwise. Once I am fit, that has not changed.”

The squad is as follows:
