    Guyana off-spinner Kevin Sinclair has been named in the West Indies ODI squad for the first time.

    Today, CWI revealed the team to take on New Zealand in three day/night ODIs at Kensington Oval in Barbados on August 17th, 19th and 21st.

    Sinclair has represented West Indies in T20Is before but is now in line for an ODI debut.
