Windies paceman Edwards to play T20 matches against Australia

St.Lucia (West Indies): Fast bowler Fidel Edwards has been included in the 14-member West Indies squad for two Twenty20 matches, after being overlooked for the one- day series.

The other additions to the squad were left-arm seamer Krishmar Santokie, batting allrounders Dwayne Smith and Nkrumah Bonner and left-arm spinner Garey Mathurin.

The West Indies squad features several players, including all-rounders Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell and Dwayne Bravo, who have performed in the ongoing one-day series.

West Indies chairman of selectors Clyde Butts said he was hopeful the players chosen would be able to continue the form shown by the one-day side, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

"We have named a squad with a mixture of experience and youth, and we believe they have the quality to defeat the Australians," Butts said.

Windies squad: Darren Sammy (capt), Dwayne Bravo, Carlton Baugh, Nkrumah Bonner, Darren Bravo, Johnson Charles, Fidel Edwards, Garey Mathurin, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Krishmar Santokie, Dwayne Smith.
