West Indies Squad for Test Series against India - 2016

West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) announced a twelve member squad for the four test match series against India starting on July 21, 2016. Jason Holder will be leading the team with Kraigg Brathwaite as vice captain of the team. Roston Chase will be the only debutant player for West Indies in the 12-member squad. This West indies team is packed with full of all-rounders in the names of Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Carlos Brathwaite, Roston Chase and Jason holder which gives the team depth in batting and more bowling options to deal with batting strong Indian team. However, the bowling unit looks a bit inexperienced but playing at home might give an edge to attack the Indian batsmen.

Squad:

  • Jason Holder(c)
  • Kraigg Brathwaite
  • Shane Dowrich (Wk)
  • Marlon Samuels
  • Jermaine Blackwood
  • Devendra Bishoo
  • Rajendra Chandrika
  • Carlos Brathwaite
  • Darren Bravo
  • Roston Chase
  • Leon Johnson
  • Shannon Gabriel

WIth both the teams announcing their respective squads we can expect an interesting contest between India and West Indies as both the teams got a lot of young and fresh faces.
