ST JOHN’S – Se­lec­tors on Fri­day hand­ed a shock re­call to fast bowler Fi­del Ed­wards at age 39 and af­ter near­ly 10 years out of in­ter­na­tion­al crick­et, in a 14-man squad for the three-match Twen­ty20 In­ter­na­tion­al se­ries against Sri Lan­ka start­ing in An­tigua on Wednes­day.

Bar­ba­di­an Ed­wards has been joined by an­oth­er vet­er­an, 41-year-old open­er Chris Gayle, who has re­turned to the in­ter­na­tion­al set up af­ter near­ly two years out of the side.

Un­capped Guyanese off-spin­ner Kevin Sin­clair has been named in both the T20 and One-Day In­ter­na­tion­al squads which will be led as ex­pect­ed by Kieron Pol­lard, but there is no room for all-rounder An­dre Rus­sell who on­ly re­cent­ly re­cov­ered af­ter con­tract­ing COVID-19

Left-han­der Shim­ron Het­my­er, who has starred for Guyana Jaguars in the on­go­ing Re­gion­al Su­per50 Cup here, was not con­sid­ered for se­lec­tion for ei­ther squad af­ter fail­ing a fit­ness test

All-rounder Ros­ton Chase, along with fast bowlers Shel­don Cot­trell and Os­hane Thomas, were al­so over­looked af­ter fail­ing fit­ness tests, one of the ma­jor se­lec­tion cri­te­ria

Pol­lard is one eight play­ers who missed the ODI tour of Bangladesh over COVID-19 con­cerns and per­son­al rea­sons but who have re­turned to strength­en the squad

How­ev­er, the se­lec­tion of Ed­wards was the sur­prise name in the T20 squad, es­pe­cial­ly since he on­ly re­cent­ly an­nounced his in­ten­tion to rep­re­sent West In­dies again

Hav­ing spent sev­er­al sea­sons with Eng­lish Coun­ty Hamp­shire, Ed­wards be­came avail­able to play in­ter­na­tion­al crick­et again due to Brex­it – the Unit­ed King­dom’s with­draw­al from the Eu­ro­pean Union – which end­ed Kol­pak deals in coun­ty crick­et

Ed­wards, who played 50 Tests and 50 ODIs, de­part­ed Hamp­shire last year and sub­se­quent­ly turned out for Ja­maica Tallawahs, grab­bing nine wick­ets at an av­er­age of 25 and an econ­o­my rate of 7-½ runs per over

Gayle, mean­while, has not fea­tured for West In­dies since In­dia’s tour of the Caribbean in 2019 when he made 87 runs from three in­nings in the three-match ODI se­ries

Still a po­tent force on the glob­al T20 fran­chise cir­cuit, he last turned out in a T20 In­ter­na­tion­al two years ago against Eng­land in the Caribbean, fin­ish­ing with 20 runs from two out­ings

Chief se­lec­tor Roger Harp­er said Gayle still brought “great val­ue” to the T20 squad while Ed­wards added “po­tent fire­pow­er” to the at­tack

“As we build to­wards the de­fence of the T20 World Cup, the op­por­tu­ni­ty is be­ing tak­en to de­ter­mine our best team and squad as we go for­ward,” Harp­er ex­plained

Chris Gayle has per­formed very well in re­cent tour­na­ments and the se­lec­tion pan­el thinks that he can still add great val­ue to our team. Fi­del Ed­wards has been se­lect­ed to give the bowl­ing the po­tent fire­pow­er need­ed.”

The 21-year-old Sin­clair, mean­while, starred in the 2019 Su­per50 with 13 wick­ets to fire the West In­dies Emerg­ing Team to the ti­tle but had or­di­nary cam­paigns in last year’s Caribbean Pre­mier League and the on­go­ing Su­per50

Left-arm spin­ner Akeal Ho­sein, who made his ODI de­but against Bangladesh ear­li­er this month, has been named in both squads along with Test cap­tain Ja­son Hold­er, and Harp­er said the com­bi­na­tions pro­vid­ed for a var­ied West In­dies in at­tack in both for­mats

“Ja­son Hold­er has shown his all-round val­ue in this for­mat in re­cent times and af­ter miss­ing a few se­ries he will add depth and ex­pe­ri­ence to the squad,” Harp­er not­ed

“Akeal Ho­sein per­formed very well in Bangladesh [ODI Se­ries] and had ex­cel­lent stats in the CPL so this is an op­por­tu­ni­ty to see how he equips him­self in this for­mat.

“Kevin Sin­clair grabbed our at­ten­tion in the Su­per50 Cup back in 2019 and has been con­sis­tent­ly eco­nom­i­cal in the last CPL and the cur­rent CG In­sur­ance Su­per50. He will pro­vide an off-spin­ning op­tion for the team.”
