The Cricket West Indies (CWI) selection panel officially announced the Test squad for the two-match series scheduled to be held from 30th November in Australia. After the debacle in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 exiting the competition in the First Round, the Windies are set to return down under for the longest format of the sport against the hosts.

The selection panel announced a 15-member list touring the Australian subcontinent for the two test matches held in Perth and Adelaide. Tagenarine Chanderpaul, the eldest son of Shivnarine Chanderpaul, is all set to embark on a new journey. He earned a call-up from the national side being the lone new entrant.

Meanwhile, the lead selector Dr. Desmond Haynes explained the decisions behind selecting the players ahead of the tour to Australia.

“We have a core group of players who have been part of the Test squad and have performed well. We have played two series this year – against England and Bangladesh – and won both. We have been playing good Test cricket and expect to do well against the Australians on their home turf.”

said Haynes

“We have one newcomer to the team in Tagenarine Chanderpaul. He equipped himself very well in the West Indies Championship four-day matches and also did a very good job at the top of the order against Bangladesh A in Saint Lucia this summer. He has what it takes to do well at the highest level,” he added.

“Roston Chase has returned to the squad as an allrounder, and we believe his experience and skill set will be beneficial and Shamarh Brooks has also returned to bolster the middle-order batting,” Haynes concluded.
