Windies call up leg spinner to face BlackCaps

New Zealand will have to cope with the leg spin of Samuel Badree in the two Twenty20 internationals in Florida after the uncapped bowler was included in the West Indies squad for this weekend's matches.
The 31-year-old from Trinidad and Tobago is the only player from outside the tour party to England to be included in the 13-man squad for the two games against the Black Caps at Central Broward Park in Lauderhill.
Badree's domestic form, which has seen him take 39 wickets at 15.61, warranted his inclusion, said chief selector Clyde Butts.
"Badree has been a consistent performer in regional tournaments over a period of time and the selectors felt it was the right time to introduce him to the team," Butts said.
The West Indies lost all three formats against England on their tour, losing the Test and one-day series 2-0 and they lost Sunday's sole Twenty20 match by seven wickets.
After the two Twenty20s in Florida, New Zealand play five one-day internationals and two Tests against the West Indies in the Caribbean.
West Indies Twenty20 squad to play New Zealand: Darren Sammy (capt), Samuel Badree, Dwayne Bravo, Johnson Charles, Fidel Edwards, Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Ravi Rampaul, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith.
