Injured Windies fast bowler Kemar Roach has been replaced by upcoming talent Alzarri Joseph for the second Test against Bangladesh at Sabina Park in Kingston starting on Thursday.

Roach suffered a hamstring strain during the Windies’ emphatic win over the visitors during the first Test played in Antigua. The Windies won by an innings and 219 runs. The veteran pacer has been ordered to rest.

On his return to international cricket, Joseph was the most successful bowler for the President’s XI side taking 4 for 53 from 15 overs against Bangladesh just under two weeks ago.

Other than the inclusion of Joseph for the injured Roach, the Windies squad remains unchanged.

The squad reads Jason Holder – Captain, Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Alzarri Joseph, Shai Hope, Keemo Paul, Kieran Powell and Devon Smith.

Should the Windies win the second Test or not lose, they will climb above the visitors in the ICC Test rankings, one of the objectives set out by CWI prior to the start of the series.
