Darren Bravo and John Campbell, who are part of the West Indies Test team, have been included in the West Indies A squad which will play a three-day tour game against India starting on Saturday at the Coolidge Cricket Ground. Bravo and Campbell played a key role in West Indies' Test Series triumph against England in February. This has been done to provide the duo with the much-needed game time before the two-Test series against India which begins on August 22 in Antigua.

The West Indies, after losing the Twenty20 International series 3-0 and the One-Day International series 2-0,  are yet to defeat the travelling Indian team and the two Test matches left on the tour are their only chances. 

But beating the World No. 1 Test team will not be easy because Virat Kohli will have the services of key players including Jasprit Bumrah who missed the limited-overs leg of the tour. The arrival of Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane will strengthen the already solid Indian batting.

The West Indies A squad will be led by Jahmar Hamilton and includes several players -- Jeremy Solozano, Akim Fraser and Romario Shepherd -- that played against India A last month.

West Indies A squad for tour-match:

Jahmar Hamilton (capt), Darren Bravo, John Campbell, Jonathan Carter, Akim Fraser, Keon Harding, Kavem Hodge, Brandon King, Jason Mohammed, Marquino Mindley, Khary Pierre, Rovman Powell, Romario Shepherd and Jeremy Solozano
