Simmons calls uncapped quartet

Carlos Brathwaite, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich and Shai Hope will be given their chance to shine, while Darren Bravo returns from injury.

Bravo’s World Cup ended early due to a hamstring injury, but he is on the list of players called up by the??West Indies Cricket Board for a training??camp in Antigua that begins on April 5.

Star name Chris Gayle will miss the camp and the England series,??which starts on April 13, due to ongoing back problems and his Indian Premier??League commitments.

Along with the possible new caps,??spinner Devendra Bishoo could be in line for a Test recall after two??years out, as is slow left-armer Veerasammy Permaul, who last played a five-day fixture in??December 2013.

Simmons will be in charge of his country for the first time, having taken over as coach earlier this month after a lengthy spell in charge of Ireland.

West Indies training squad: Suliemann Benn, Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Carlos Brathwaite, Kraigg??Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Sheldon Cottrell, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel,??Jason Holder, Shai Hope, Leon Johnson, Veerasamy Permaul, Denesh Ramdin, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Devon Smith, Jerome??Taylor.
