WEST INDIES could be looking to a new-look fast bowling attack for the final Test against England.
Amidst reports that captain Jason Holder will miss the Test because of a one-match ban for the team’s slow over-rate, there is also uncertainty surrounding the availability of Alzarri Joseph following the death of his mother.
The development surrounding Holder comes on the heels of West Indies completing a second crushing victory against England that guarantees them the series ahead of the final Test.
While several media outlets, including ESPNcricinfo, BBC and Reuters reported yesterday that Holder was slapped with a suspension, cricket governing’s body, the International Cricket Council did not provide confirmation.
ESPNcricinfo reported that 20-year-old Guyanese allrounder Keemo Paul will come into the squad in Holder’s absence, with vice-captain Kraigg Brathwaite to take over as captain for the match at the Daren Sammy Stadium in St Lucia. (HG)
