Cricket West Indies has lauded its Test captain Jason Holder who is now ranked ninth in the ICC Test bowling rankings and third in the Test allrounder rankings during a standout year.

Captain Stafanie Taylor says captaining the West Indies in the ICC Women’s World T20 2018 is both a huge honour and a massive challenge but it will great feeling to lead the team at home.

Stuart Law has resigned as Head Coach of the WINDIES Men’s team and is to take on a new role in England,come January 2019.

Citing his lack of fitness, Windies selectors have withdrawn fast bowler Alzarri Joseph from the Windies squad for the upcoming Test tour of India, replacing him with Shermon Lewis.
