After over a year in the wilderness,is set to return to West Indies duty next month.
According to a source close to the West Indies Cricket Board, Ramdin, the Trinidad and Tobago wicketkeeper/batsman will be in the West Indies touring party for both the limited overs and Test series in Bangladesh in October and November.
It is understood that both Ramdin and Carlton Baugh, who did duty behind the stumps throughout the Digicel Home series against Pakistan and India have been included for the two-match Test series, while Ramdin will be the man for the One-day International (ODI) series as well.
Ramdin, who left with the Trinidad and Tobago team yesterday for the Nokia Champions League qualifying tournament in India, is expected to be one of six T&T players in the ODI squad. Also expected to take their places in that squad are Kieron Pollard,, , Adrian Barath and Daren Bravo. However, there is no place for all-rounder .
The out-of-form Bravo had asked to be omitted for the rest of the ODIs against India following the second match at the Queen's park Oval. Bravo said at the time he was "not happy with the way my cricket is at the moment." However Bravo was subsequently also left out of the three-match Test series.
For the 26, year-old Ramdin however, there is the chance to revive an international career that had declined by 2010 when he played the last of his 42 Tests and 81 ODIs for the West Indies.
During the West Indies Cricket Board's Regional Four-Day tournament however, Ramdin scored one unbeaten century and four half-centuries in eight matches and was the leading wicketkeeper with 27 dismissals.
The Test and ODI squads are expected to be announced later this week.
