Despite suffering from injuries, West Indies captain Ramnaresh Sarwan and middle-order batsman Marlon Samuels have been added to the ongoing camp and workshop.

The two players were at Kensington Oval late Tuesday as their team mates did fitness drills and held net sessions.

Sarwan, who is recovering from an ankle injury, and Samuels, who has not recovered from a long-term leg complaint, were not among the 23 players originally named for the two-week camp.

They will not be considered for the upcoming tour of Zimbabwe, where the Windies will play five One-day Internationals, but it is hoped they could recover for the Test tour of South Africa which follows.

The camp has two major components - practical on-field skills and fitness tests; and classroom work including developmental programmes geared towards each player.

Tony Howard, the cricket operations manager of the West Indies Cricket Board, gave a brief explanation as to why the two players were included.

"They (Sarwan and Samuels) are key players in the West Indies set-up and we decided to bring them long especially for the classroom component where we will be looking at leadership in a major way," he said.

They were under the watch of physiotherapist Jacqui King-Mowatt, who will be accompanying the team to Zimbabwe.
