Carter called up as cover for Pollard

l St George's

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) selection panel has called up Jonathan Carter, the left-handed middle-order batsman, as cover for allrounder Kieron Pollard in the West Indies squad for the first One-Day International against Zimbabwe, today.

The 25-year-old Carter, who is also a lively seam bowler and wicketkeeper, is yet to play at the international level. He has been a member of the West Indies A Team for the last two seasons.

Pollard has experienced travel difficulties in reaching Grenada ahead of the start of the three-match One-Day Series, which bowls off today at the Grenada National Stadium.

First ball is at 9.30 a.m.
