West Indies call up Cuffy, Mohammed
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, March 27 (AFP) - The West Indies cricket selectors have called up fast bowler Cameron Cuffy and left-arm
spinner Dave Mohammed in a 13-man squad for the third Test against South Africa starting at Kensington Oval Thursday.
Fast bowler Nixon McLean was dropped from the side that lost the second Test by 69 runs in Port of Spain, Trinidad, last week. Fellow fast
bowler Reon King, who was a member of the squad for the first two Tests but did not play, was also left out.
Cuffy, 31, from Windward Islands, bowled impressively in taking three for 38 for a West Indies Board XI in the first innings of a three-day
match which ended in a draw in Bridgetown Monday. He has played in three Tests.
Mohammed, 20, an unorthodox left-arm spinner, has not played international cricket. He bowled tidily for the Board XI and took both
wickets in South Africa's second innings.
Shivnarine Chanderpaul, who did not play in the first two Tests, was retained in the squad despite modest performances during the Board XI
match in which he scored 12 and 20 not out.
West Indies squad: Carl Hooper (capt), Ridley Jacobs (vice-captain), Chris Gayle, Wavell Hinds, Marlon Samuels, Brian Lara, Ramnaresh
Sarwan, Dinanath Ramnarine, Mervyn Dillon, Courtney Walsh, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Cameron Cuffy and Dave Mohammed.
