Uncapped Campbell and Brooks in West Indies squad for first Test against England

Bridgetown, Barbados, September 15 -(www.bcacricket.org) – Two uncapped players - opener John Campbell and middle order batsman Shamarh Brooks - have been named in the West Indies 13-man squad for the first Test against England at Kensington Oval, starting January 23.

Left-hander Campbell, 26, represents Jamaica Scorpions while the 30-year-old Brooks is captain of Barbados Pride.

There are recalls for Darren Bravo, the Trinidad & Tobago Red Force left-hand batsman and Antiguan fast bowler Alzarri Joseph, who plays for Leeward Islands Hurricances.

Fast bowler Oshane Thomas of Jamaica Scorpions has been named as cover for Joseph, who is making a comeback from injury.

Chairman of Selectors, Courtney Browne said: “After a difficult Test Series in Bangladesh late last year the opportunity presents itself for our team to pick itself up. Although a tough series against England is anticipated, home turf has always been a place where our team has made strides.”

Browne added: “With the return of Darren Bravo, who will add value to a batting department, we expect to see marked improvement. Young, exciting, fast bowler Alzarri Joseph, who was sidelined by injury, returns to the squad and Shamarh Brooks has been elevated for his solid first-class performances over the last three years. John Campbell the incumbent ‘A’ team opener, who has played first-class cricket for a number of years, will open the batting after a good first-class season in 2018. The panel takes this opportunity to wish captain Jason Holder and his team all the best in the upcoming series.” 

The teams are playing for the Wisden Trophy.

Cricket West Indies Chief Executive Officer Johnny Grave remarked: “The Wisden Trophy has got incredible history and the West Indies have got a proud record to defend. England have only won one Test Series on West Indies soil in 50 years. We hope that our fans will once again become the team’s twelfth man and rally to create the noise and colour that gives the squad the support they deserve and register a win in what will be a great battle.”

Squad: Jason Holder (captain), Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks, John Campbell, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Kemar Roach, Jomel Warrican. NB: Oshane Thomas has been called up as cover for Alzarri Joseph.
