Under the ICC World Test Championship, Windies Cricket has announced its team for the second Test of the ongoing Test series between India and West Indies . Keemo Paul has been given a place in this team. On Tuesday, Windies Cricket announced its team and put a list of 13 member team on Twitter. Keemo Paul has been replaced in place of Miguel Cummins in this match. In the first Test of the series, the West Indies team had a disappointing performance, due to which the team had to face a record loss of 318 runs.
There was not much hope of change in this team. This was indicated by team captain Jason Holder during the first Test and also after the match. Holder said after the match that the team’s batsmen need to see a mirror. Chasing a target of 419 runs in Antigua, the Windies team had lost the match by piling on only 100 runs and this showed the disappointment of Holder’s batsmen.
In this innings, West Indies batsmen bowed out completely in front of India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah.Bumrah took five wickets for seven runs. At the same time, the top order of the West Indies was also faltered in the first innings. And at one time the four wickets of the West Indies had fallen to only 88 runs.
Holder said, “Our batsmen could not do well in this match. I think the wicket was very good for the batsmen. The new ball was causing some problems in the beginning. As a batsman you might have had problems at that time. , But later it was easy to bat on it. It is a matter of us working a little more.”
Apart from this, Holder was quite satisfied with their bowlers. The West Indies bowlers had bowled brilliantly in the first innings and returned the pavilion to the three leading batsmen of India by a score of only 25.
West Indies Squad: Jason Holder (captain), Kraigg Brathwaite, John Campbell, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Roston Chase, Shamarh Brooks, Jahmar Hamilton, Rahkeem Cornwall, Keemo Paul, Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel.
