ST JOHN'S, Antigua (CMC):

Untested Jamaican speedster Reynard Leveridge and his countryman, John Campbell, make their return in a strong 13-man West Indies A to face Sri Lanka A in the first two four-day 'Tests' of the three-match series set to bowl off in Jamaica next month.

The opening match of the series is set for the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium from October 11-14, with the second match carded for the same venue five days later.

Sabina Park will host the third and final match from October 26-29.

Leveridge limped out of the first 'Test' of the last A-tour of Sri Lanka last October, while on debut, and was sidelined for the remainder of the series with injury.

Meanwhile, Campbell has gained a call-up after scoring 495 runs in the last first class season.

The squad will be again led by Shamarh Brooks and include left-handed batsman Vishal Singh and left-arm seamer Sheldon Cottrell, both of whom have represented West Indies in Tests.

Prolific Windward Islands batsman Sunil Ambris, currently on tour with the Windies one-day side in England, has been named in the unit.

Also in the squad is left-hander Yannic Cariah of Trinidad and Tobago, who was also among the runs with 691, including two centuries.

SQUAD: Shamarh Brooks (captain), Vishal Singh (vice-captain), Sunil Ambris, John Campbell, Yannic Cariah, Rahkeem Cornwall, Sheldon Cottrell, Jahmar Hamilton, Montcin Hodge, Damion Jacobs, Keon Joseph, Reynard Leveridge, Oshane Thomas.
