Chemar Holder and Nkrumah Bonner have been included in the lineup of the West Indies against England.
The West Indies has already named their 14-man squad for their upcoming match series against England. The series is set to be held on July 8 behind closed doors. Aside from naming their 14 players, they also named 11 reserve players for the said tour.
Among those who had been included were newcomers Chemar Holder and Nkrumah Bonner. Holder played in the Under-19 World Cup in 2016 and has been consistent with his performance. He is known as a fast bowler who bagged 36 wickets at an average of 18.91 in the first-class season of 2019-2020. Bonner, on the other hand, was part of the team’s four-day championship in T20Is where he garnered a total of 523 runs. Aside from that, he is known for being a useful leg-spinner.
With regards to the upcoming series, Cricket West Indies lead selector Roger Harper says, ‘The new cricketing environment will take some getting used to. However, being in England and working together for four weeks before the first Test will give the squad the opportunity to get acclimatized and hopefully, mentally and technically adjusted to the demands of the new environment. Playing in July could be a blessing as the weather is likely to be warmer which will allow the squad more of an opportunity to play its best cricket’.
The West Indies tour of England will be comprised of three-Test matches which are to be played behind closed doors to ensure the safety of the players and the staff. To further understand Test matches, visit Betwala.
