Sunil has not played any Test & he has only represented West Indies in a single ODI. West Indies chief of selectors Courtney Browne has selected Ambris due to his consistent performance at domestic level.

"Sunil has replaced Kyle Hope in the squad, and this is on the basis of his consistent performances across formats and his outstanding returns for the Windies ‘A’ Team,"

He added, "Kyle is encouraged to return to the first-class championship and turn in the strong performances his talent suggests he can deliver."
