West Indies announce 17-member squad for Tests against Pakistan

Chemar Holder and Bonner return while Darren Bravo is given a break from the bubble

West Indies announced a 17-men squad for the two-match Test series against Pakistan starting on August 12th. The panel have recalled fast bowler Chemar Holder and middle-order batsman Shamarh Brooks. Holder made his Test debut in New Zealand last year but has not featured since then. Brooks last played in New Zealand and has earned a recall following a polished century in the Best v Best four-day match last week. Additionally, two experienced players, left-hander Darren Bravo and fast bowler Shannon Gabriel will not feature in the upcoming two-match series.

Roger Harper, Lead Selector of the Senior Men’s Team said: “Chemar Holder returns, having recovered from his injury. He will bolster the fast bowling department. Shamarh Brooks batted his way into the provisional squad by scoring an accomplished century. He will certainly add some depth to the squad’s batting.

“Shannon Gabriel has been given time to rehab fully and build his conditioning, so he was not part of the preparations for the Test series against Pakistan, which included the Best v Best game. Darren Bravo has been part of the ‘bubble’ from the preparation camp leading into the Betway Test series against South Africa and has been given a break.”

Harper added: “I expect the team to be highly competitive in every department while playing with passion, purpose and determination. I look forward to the batsmen stepping up as they did in the series against Bangladesh and against Sri Lanka earlier this year in Antigua.”

The Test series forms the first of six Series in the new cycle of the International Cricket Council World Test Championship. The two sides engaged in a four-match T20I series leading up to the Tests. Pakistan won the series 1-0 as inclement weather resulted in an abondonment of the other three T20Is. 

FULL SQUAD

Kraigg Brathwaite (Captain); Jermaine Blackwood (Vice Captain), Nkrumah Bonner, Shamarh Brooks, Rahkeem Cornwall, Roston Chase, Joshua Da Silva, Jahmar Hamilton, Chemar Holder, Jason Holder, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Kyle Mayers, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales, Jomel Warrican

Schedule

The first Test will beign from 12th of August while the second from the 20th. Both the Tests will be played at the Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica
