Chanderpaul, uncapped Athanaze in West Indies Test camp  for India tour


On Thursday, Cricket West Indies (CWI) Men’s Selection Panel named the squad for the preparation camp ahead of the two-match Cycle Pure Agarbathi Test Series against India in the Caribbean.

Jayden Seales will return to West Indies training following his rehabilitation. The fast bowler last played for West Indies in the first Test at the Perth Stadium, last December. He had knee surgery in December and has subsequently been working on a rehabilitation programme overseen by the CWI Medical Team.

The training squad includes several players who are uncapped at the Test level – including batsmen Alick Athanaze, Kavem Hodge, and Kirk McKenzie; as well as fast bowlers Akeem Jordan, and Jair McAllister.

The camp will be held at the Coolidge Cricket Ground (CCG) in Antigua, with training starting on Friday, 30 June.

The squad for the opening Test will be named later and will travel to Dominica on Sunday, 9 July.

The Cycle Pure Agarbathi Test series will be West Indies & India’s first fixtures in the 2023-2025 ICC World Test Championship.

The first Test will be at Windsor Park, Dominica, from 12-16 July, followed by the historic second Test on 20-24 July at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad – marking the 100th Test match between West Indies and India. (CWI)
