    candel West Indies names squad for New Zealand tour

    KINGSTON: Four newcomers, including Australian-born Brendon Nash, were on Friday named in the West Indies cricket side for an upcoming tour of New Zealand.

    Chris Gayle was retained as captain while Ramnaresh Sarwan will be his deputy on the West Indies roster that will play Tests at Dunedin on December 11-15 and Napier on December 19-23 plus two Twenty20 and five one-day matches.

    All-rounder Nash, who played for Jamaica in the West Indies tournament, had previously represented Queensland in Australia.

    Lionel Barker, Kemar Roach and Leon Johnson were the other new faces on the West Indies squad.

    Barker, from Montserrat, and Roach, from Barbados, are fast bowlers while Johnson is a batsman from Guyana.

    West Indies coach John Dyson said players look forward to the tour and hope to move up in the world cricket rankings. The West Indies are eighth in the test rankings, one point below New Zealand.

    "The New Zealand series will be hard fought," Dyson said. "New Zealand is ranked one place higher than us and a series win might see West Indies overtake New Zealand.

    "Like all the top teams, we will be looking for strong performances from our experienced, senior players."

    The Test squad for New Zealand is: Chris Gayle (Captain), Ramnaresh Sarwan
    (Vice Captain), Lionel Baker, Carlton Baugh, Sulieman Benn, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Sewnarine Chattergoon, Fidel Edwards, Leon Johnson, Xavier
    Marshall, Brendan Nash, Daren Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Kemar Roach, Jerome Taylor.

    The West Indies also named a one-day squad to face Pakistan in Abu Dhabi, with line-ups for the 20-20 and one-days in New Zealand to be named later.

    The West Indies squad to play Pakistan will be: Chris Gayle (Captain), Ramnaresh Sarwan (Vice Captain), Lionel Baker, Carlton Baugh, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Sewnarine Chattergoon, Shawn Findlay, Leon Johnson, Xavier Marshall, Nikita Miller, Dave Mohammed, Brendan Nash, Daren Powell, Kemar Roach, Jerome Taylor.

    BARBADOS: West Indies named its squad for their forthcoming tour against New Zealand and the appointment of wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin as the new Vice-Captain.

    Ramdin replaced Ramnaresh Sarwan for the post for the upcoming five ODIs and two Twenty20 internationals on the tour of New Zealand. Sarwan, however, retains the deputy to captain position in the unlimited over format of the game.

    Besides him, pacer Fidel Edwards and all-rounder Kieron Pollard have been also included in the ODI squad. On the other hand, batsman Leon Johnson, fast bowler Kemar Roach and spinner Dave Mohammed have been rested.


    In the Test squad, West Indies selectors have decided to go with two wicketkeepers; Carlton Baugh and Ramdin. Pollard, another Trinidad Tobago player, has also been given a berth in the squad.

    Left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn will stay on after the Tests for the two Twenty20 internationals on December 26 and 28. The five-ODI series begins on December 31.

    West Indies squad: Xavier Marshall, Chris Gayle (capt), Ramnaresh Sarwan, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Sewnarine Chattergoon, Kieron Pollard, Shawn Findlay, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Carlton Baugh (wk), Fidel Edwards, Brendan Nash, Nikita Miller, Daren Powell, Jerome Taylor, Lionel Baker, Sulieman Benn

    Default New Zealand name squad for 2 Tests against WI


    New Zealand name squad for 2 Tests against WI

    WELLINGTON: Uncapped opening batsman Tim McIntosh was named Saturday along with recalled all-rounders Jacob Oram and James Franklin in the New Zealand cricket team for the first of two tests against the West Indies.

    Franklin and Oram have both been recalled after recent injury lay offs. Oram missed New Zealand''s two-test series against Australia after suffering a back injury against Bangladesh, then broke afinger in a recent first-class match.

    Chris Martin, who led the New Zealand bowling attack in Australia, was dropped from the squad and replaced by Mark Gillespie. Turner said the selectors believed Martin would benefit from the opportunity to play more domestic cricket.

    New Zealand squad: Daniel Vettori (captain), Jamie How, TimMcIntosh, Daniel Flynn, Ross Taylor, Jesse Ryder, Jacob Oram,Brendon McCullum, James Franklin, Mark Gillespie, Iain O''Brien,Jeetan Patel.

    Default 3-day match between WI and Auckland ends in draw


    3-day match between WI and Auckland ends in draw

    AUCKLAND: The West Indies warmed up for the first cricket Test against New Zealand with valuable time in the middle as their three-day match against Auckland ended in a draw.

    After Auckland had declared at 587 for seven, the West Indies had reached 431 for seven when stumps were drawn.

    It was never a realistic run chase and opener Sewnarine Chattergoon contented himself with a deliberate 93 off 247 balls, while Ramnaresh Sarwan top-scored with 158 before he retired.

    After starting the final day at 82 without loss, the West Indies added eight runs before Xavier Marshall became the first wicket to fall, bowled by left-arm paceman Michael Bates for 47.

    As the tourists crept along at just more than two runs an over, Chattergoon and Sarwan put on 116 for the second wicket before Chattergoon''s five hours at the crease ended when he was bowled by spinner Tarun Nethula.

    Shivnarine Chanderpaul added 22 and Brendan Nash 23, but both would be disappointed they did not last longer in the middle, while wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin was not out 37, including seven boundaries, at the close.

    The first Test against New Zealand starts in the southern city of Dunedin on December 11.

    Default NZ and West Indies aim to lift rankings in Test se

    DUNEDIN:New Zealand and the West Indies will be fighting for supremacy on the lower rungs of Test cricket world rankings in a two-match series starting here Thursday.

    Both sides are licking their wounds after defeats to Australia, although the seventh-ranked West Indies have not played another Test since going down 2-0 in a three-match series at home which ended in June.

    New Zealand has more recent Test experience but that was a 2-0 thrashing in two Tests in Australia last month, a result that saw them drop below the West Indies into eighth spot in the world rankings.

    The New Zealanders have had the best of recent contests against the once mighty West Indies, winning the last three Test series.

    Skipper Daniel Vettori said Wednesday the home side is ready to make amends under new coach Andy Moles for the dismal performance in Australia, despite a preparation disrupted this week by rain in the southern city of Dunedin.

    The home side's greatest weakness for several years has been a brittle batting lineup and they will be fielding another new opening partnership with the selection of uncapped Aucklander Tim McIntosh to join Jamie How.

    West Indies coach John Dyson said New Zealand's worries about their batting were reflected in their decision to bringing in all-rounders Jacob Oram and James Franklin, both of whom are returning from injury.

    Daniel Flynn has been promoted to three to strengthen the top of the New Zealand order after averaging 35 in his seven Tests in the middle order. He swaps places with Jesse Ryder, whose swashbuckling style is seen as more effective at five.

    Injury-prone Oram may be in doubt for the Test after reporting a tight left calf muscle before training Wednesday, although he did take part in the practice.

    Bowler Kyle Mills has been brought in as a precaution, but team manager Lindsay Crocker said Oram would likely be passed fit Thursday.

    Left-arm swing bowler Franklin is expected to return from a long injury lay-off ahead of spinner Jeetan Patel.

    But Franklin's form with the bat rather than the ball has caused a stir after he scored a century and double century in consecutive first class matches.

    The biggest shock in the squad announced for the Test under new coach Andy Moles was the dropping of opening bowler Chris Martin, who was seen lacking penetration against Australia, in favour of Mark Gillespie.

    The West Indies have a much more established batting lineup than the home side, led by captain Chris Gayle, Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh Sarwan, who scored 158 against Auckland in a warm up match ending on Sunday.

    The bowling attack appears less deadly, with quick bowlers Fidel Edwards, Jerome Taylor, and Daren Powell lacking the firepower of the lengendary West Indies speedsters of the past.

    The Test will see the trial of a new rule allowing captains of the fielding side to refer appeals rejected by the on-field umpires to the third umpire for a review. Batsmen will also be able to ask for a review by the third umpire when they are given out.

    To limit excessive requests for reviews, each team can make only three unsuccessful referrals in an innings under the rule first trialled when Sri Lanka hosted India in July and August.

    Default New Zealand all out for 365 against Windies in 1st


    New Zealand all out for 365 against Windies in 1st Test

    DUNEDIN: New Zealand were all out for 365 runs on the third day of the rain-hit first Test as they collapsed, losing their last six wickets for 139 runs in the morning here on Saturday.

    In reply the West Indies reached 39 without loss by stumps, with captain Chris Gayle on 29 and Shivnarine Chattergoon on nine.

    With two days remaining, the chances of a result were fast receding after Friday was rained out and play was unable to start until mid-afternoon Saturday.

    New Zealand were 226 for four when play got underway in cold conditions at the University Oval with Jesse Ryder''s 89 providing the highlight in the middle order after number three Daniel Flynn''s 95 on Thursday.

    After reaching 54 on the first day, the usually aggressive Ryder struggled at times on the slow-paced wicket. But he still hit 12 fours in his four-and-a-quarter hours at the crease before falling 11 runs short of his first Test hundred by pulling Daren Powell to Shivnarine Chanderpaul at midwicket.

    With Brendon McCullum, who was the day''s first wicket to fall after scoring an unusually subdued 25 off 120 balls, Ryder put on 89 runs for the fifth wicket.

    After McCullum''s dismissal, the West Indies maintained their momentum, preventing the home side from establishing any major partnerships.

    Powell was the pick of the West Indies speedsters, finishing with three for 68, while the relatively expensive Fidel Edwards took three for 91 after taking toll of New Zealand''s lower order.

    Gayle did the damage to the top of the New Zealand batting lineup on Thursday, finishing with three for 42 from 21 economical overs.

    Gayle did the damage to the top of the New Zealand batting lineup on Thursday, finishing with three for 42 from 21 economical overs.

    All rounder James Franklin fell for seven when his back foot slipped into the stumps after fending a short ball.

    New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori scored a useful 30, before cutting the ball to Xavier Marshall at deep point, apparently unaware the fielder had moved position after the previous ball.

    Kyle Mills became the second New Zealand batsman to be given out on a video review, which Gayle requested after umpire Mark Benson ruled against an lbw appeal where the ball hit both the pad and the bat off Edwards bowling.

    The video review by third umpire Rudi Koertzen showed the ball hit Mills' pad before deflecting on to his bat, confirming he should have been out.

    Flynn became the first New Zealander to be given out in a video review on Thursday, falling five runs short of his maiden Test century after Koertzen studied video replays of an lbw appeal off Gayle's bowling.

    The two match series is being used for only the second time in Tests to trial the experimental review rule, where both fielding sides and batsmen can ask for a video review of umpires' decisions on dismissals
