The three are Atticus Browne, Sunil Ambris and Rodney Lawrence.

Browne and Ambris also played in last year’s TCL West Indies Competition, which was held in Jamaica. Browne, who had a relatively lean showing at the top of the order, however, got the vote of confidence from selectors Raphael Croney, Keith Charlery and Irvin Warrican.

Browne’s best contribution was his 53 not out in the third place play off in the limited overs competition versus Grenada. His innings piloted the Vincentians to a six wicket win and the third spot.

Ambris, who was the first Vincentian to represent the West Indies at the Under-15 level, chalked up 190 runs in his six innings, with a highest score of 76.

Lawrence, a former Windwards Under-17 player, who kept wicket for the Vincentians, makes the cut after some promising innings. His highest score was 56 against Dominica in the two-day league format.

St. Lucian Audy Alexander has been named Captain. His countrymen Kurt Edwards, Dwight Thomas and Bronte Bess have also been included. Grenadians Rudolph Paul (Vice Captain) , Denis Smith, Josh Thomas, Levaughn Lewis and Jennard Paul have been added to the list, with Dominicans Kaveem Hodge and Emmanuel Peter completing the squad.

The four reserves are Dominicans Jelani Robinson and Danny Dupigny; St. Lucian Jamal James, and Vincentian Shaquille Browne. (RT)
