St George’s Grenada – The West Indies Cricket Board’s Selection Panel has called up Jonathan Carter, the left-handed middle-order batsman, as cover for allrounder Kieron Pollard, in the West Indies squad for the first One-Day International against Zimbabwe.
The 25-year-old Carter, who is also a lively seam bowler and wicket-keeper, is yet to play at the international level. He has been a member of the West Indies A Team for the last two seasons.
Pollard has experienced travel difficulties in reaching Grenada ahead of the start of the three-match One-Day Series, which bowls of on Friday at the Grenada National Stadium. First ball is 9:30 am (8:30 am Jamaica Time). The series forms the first phase of the International Home Series.
