ST. JOHN'S, ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA: West Indies named an unchanged squad on Tuesday for their tour to Zimbabwe later this month.
The same 15 players that lost a three-match Test series 2-1 and five-match one day international series 4-0 against England, while winning the only T20 game between the sides, will be heading to Zimbabwe.
“The dedication, commitment and focus in their preparation and during the series in England showed immense character for such a young team in very difficult conditions against world-class competition,” said Courtney Browne, chairman of the Cricket West Indies selection panel. “The lessons learnt on that tour augurs well for the individual players and the team’s continued development as a whole and we wish them well on the Tour of Zimbabwe.”
West Indies will play two Tests against Zimbabwe following a three-day tour match against Zimbabwe A starting on October 15.
Jason Holder (capt), Kraigg Brathwaite (vice capt), Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Kyle Hope, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Kieran Powell, Raymon Reifer, Kemar Roach.
