West Indies announce India tour squad

West Indies have named a 15-man Test squad for their tour of India.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Chadwick Walton and West Indies A skipper Kirk Edwards and have been recalled to the side while pace-bowler Sheldon Cotterrell has been included for the first time. 

Walton has not featured at international level since 2009 but the 28-year-old impressed in first-class cricket this season for Combined Campuses and Colleges, scoring 409 runs in six games.

Edwards has captained the West Indies A team at home to Sri Lanka A - where he scored 191 in two innings - and in India. His last Test outing was at Trent Bridge, during England's nine-wicket win in 2012.

The 24-year-old Cotterrell is yet to gain full international honours in any format but replaces Shannon Gabriel from the side that beat Zimbabwe in March having taken 40 wickets in 18 first-class outings.

West Indies will play two Tests and three ODIs on their tour of India, with the first Test beginning on November 6.
