St. Johns: Leon Johnson has been named skipper of WICB President's XI as they get ready to play visiting Indians in a two-day practice match at Warner Park in St. Kitts on July 9 and 10.

Johnson, who has scored 275 runs in four Tests at an average of 39.28, is one of six Test players in the 12-player President's XI squad, the others being Jermaine Blackwood, Rajendra Chandrika, Shane Dowrich, Shai Hope and Jomel Warrican.

India will play two warm-up games against the President's XI before their four-Test series against the West Indies. The selectors have not yet named the President's XI squad for the second warm-up game, a three-day match that will also be played at Warner Park from July 14 to 16.

The first of the four Tests starts on July 21 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
