Sunil Ambris in WI ODI team
St Vincent and the Grenadinesâ cricket struck a sweet spot on Tuesday, when senior menâs team captain Sunil Ambris was called up to the West Indies team, for the remainder of the ODI series versus India.
The remaining ODIs are set for the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium in Antigua and Barbuda, June 30 and July 2, and at the Sabina Oval in Jamaica, July 6.
India leads the five-match series 1-0, having won the second match by 105 runs, last Sunday at the Queenâs Park Oval in Trinidad, with the first, last Friday, ending in no decision because of rain.

In first class cricket, Ambris has counted 35 matches, scoring 1,622 runs, at an average of 28.96.
Ambris, during this yearâs Professional Cricket League, registered his highest individual score â 231, which is also the best by any batsman from the Windward Islands.
