BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - AFTER suffering a whitewash (3-0) to Bangladesh, the West Indies Selectors have made a change to the squad for the upcoming limited over series against India beginning next week.
The selectors brought in former captain and all-rounder, Jason Holder ,who was rested for the Bangladesh series which was humiliating for the home side.
The change was expected as the West Indies will be going up against powerhouse India in a One Day and T20 series.
The teams will be competing for the CG United Trophy and the the three matches will be played on Friday, July 22, Sunday, July 24 and Wednesday July 27] at the historic Queen’s Park Oval.
Lead Selector, Dr Desmond Haynes said: “As we all know Jason is one of the leading all-round cricketers in the world and we’re happy to have him back in the team. He will be refreshed, re-energized and ready to go and we can expect to see his brilliance on the field as well as meaningful contributions off the field as well.”
Haynes added: “We had a very challenging three matches against Bangladesh in Guyana so we will be looking to rebound when we face India in the conditions in Trinidad. We have seen some growth among some players, but overall we need to regroup and play better against the Indians.”
All matches will be played during the day, including the two T20 Internationals slated for Warner Park on August 1 and 2.
