Taylor returns to Windies Test team
ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – Jamaican fast bowler Jerome Taylor is set to play his first Test match in five years after being named in a West Indies 13-man squad to face New Zealand in the opening Test of the three-match series at Sabina Park next Sunday.
The squad also includes veteran opener Chris Gayle who is an injury worry for what would be his 100th Test. Barbadian opener Kraigg Brathwaite has been included in the squad as cover for the left-handed Jamaican.
Fast bowler Kemar Roach, who has not played for West Indies in nearly year because of injury has been named along with left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn, who played the last of his 17 Tests nearly four years ago.
