West Indies A skipper Kirk Edwards hopes the upcoming tour to India will kick-start a return to form, and that he will be able to convince selectors to recall him to the Test side.

West Indies A skipper Kirk Edwards hopes the upcoming tour to India will kick-start a return to form, and that he will be able to convince selectors to recall him to the Test side.

Edwards last played a Test in May 2012, where he made just eight runs in four innings against England. In the most recent A-side series, in Sri Lanka, he made a big century and a half ton, but his four other knocks failed to reach double figures.

Still, with the T20, ODI and unofficial Tests in India to look forward to later this month, Edwards says he has moved on from the England debacle and is keen to make use of his experience in India.

Edwards said: "There's a job to be done [for the team]. I look forward to that. Personally, I know people harp on my Test stint against England last year but I think I had a good outing with some consistent scores.

"It was a bit disappointing but I've got over it and I'm looking forward to making some runs and moving back into the senior spotlight. This is an opportunity to propel you into the senior team.

"I need to keep getting scores to get back into Test cricket and I'll be going about things in a professional manner, day-by-day. I've been on tour to India before and I'm familiar with the conditions, so this knowledge counts for a lot."
