Batter Keacy Carty became the first player from St. Maarten to be chosen for the West Indies.
Carty and fast bowlers Jayden Seales and Shermon Lewis were chosen for their first one-day international team in the West Indies on Monday for short tours of the Netherlands and Pakistan. Seales and Lewis, however, played at Test level.
Jason Holder, Shimron Hetmyer and Evin Lewis were not considered for selection. Holder is resting to manage his workload, Hetmyer is home for the birth of his first child and Lewis did not meet fitness criteria.
Carty, 25, scored 57 and 49 against England in March in a test warm-up match for the CWI Chairman’s XI.
“We have been impressed with Carty and the way he approaches his innings,” head coach Desmond Haynes said in a statement. ”We saw several glimpses of his abilities in the way he played against England for the CWI Chairman’s XI. We hope that by giving him this opportunity, he will recognize the importance of representing the West Indies. We think he’s a very promising young drummer, and this is the kind of tour he can show he fits into. West Indies and the Netherlands meet for their first ODI series in Amstelveen on May 31, June 2 and 4. Rawalpindi will host the Pakistan ODIs on June 8, 10 and 12.
