Same Windies 13
WEST INDIES SELECTORS have retained faith in the same 13-man squad for the second Test against Pakistan starting at Kensington Oval tomorrow, despite their drubbing in the opening match in Kingston.
The Caribbean side underperformed with the bat to plunge to a seven-wicket defeat 20 minutes after lunch on last Monday’s final day at Sabina Park.
West Indies entered the contest with a greenhorn batting line-up which included Vishal Singh and Shimron Hetmyer on debut, but selectors have opted against changes and will enter the critical game at Kensington Oval with the same squad.
Shai Hope, who averages a woeful 15 and has still to score a half-century after eight matches, is hoping he gets another chance. Shane Dowrich will certainly play but he will want to convert his next fifty into a maiden Test ton before his hometown fans. The 25-year-old Dowrich has five fifties with a highest score of 74.
