The West Indies cricket selectors have named three Jamaicans in a 15-member One-Day International squad for their upcoming tour of Bangladesh.
Danza Hyatt, Andre Russell and Marlon Samuels are the Jamaicans in the Darren Sammy-led squad.
The squad sees the return of Trinidad and Tobago wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin.
Ramdin last played for the West Indies in a Test match against South Africa at Bridgetown, Barbados in June 2010.
Since then Jamaicaís Carlton Baugh Jr. and Devon Thomas have taken up the wicket keeping duties for the West Indies.
The remaining members of the squad are Adrian Barath, Devendra Bishoo, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Anthony Martin, Kieron Pollard, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Raoch, Kieran Powell and Lendl Simmons.
The West Indies tour of Bangladesh begins on October 11 with a Twenty20 international at Mirpur.
The Windies then play three One Day Internationals and two Test matches against the Bangladeshis.
The West Indies Under-19 cricketers departed Barbados last night for India where they will take on their counterparts from India, Sri Lanka and Australia in a 50-over series.
The matches will take place from September 27 to October 9. The games are highly regarded as preparations for the Under-19 World Cup in Australia in August 2012.
There are two Jamaicans in the squad. They are John Campbell and Donovan Nelson.
Barbadian Kraigg Brathwaite will captain the squad.
