Both Cottrell and Walton weren't part of the squad that played in the charity game against the ICC World XI at the Lord's. West Indies won that match by 72 runs while defending 199.

The squad, belatedly announced late yesterday and nearly 24 hours before the first game at Warner Park here, sees little change from the unit which contested the Hurricane Relief T20 at Lord's earlier this year.

It was feared that his recurring injury may have aggravated, but his inclusion in the T20 squad is a sign that the injury isn't too serious.
