Windies ton up against India

Sports 20 Jul, 2023 Follow News

Kevin Sinclair is an exciting newcomer

West Indies cricket is still spinning out of control despite all the good intentions of the new regime over the last few years.

The Cricket West Indies selection panel’s squad for the second Test match against India in Trinidad and Tobago only has one change despite being humiliated in the first Test in Dominica. The match started on Thursday.

Only Raymon Reifer was replaced–by Kevin Sinclair, the off-spinning all-rounder. Reifer will still travel to Trinidad as cover in case of injury. Guyanese Sinclair has made a huge impression. So far, he has played 18 first-class matches taking 54 wickets including three five-wicket hauls at an average of 23.98 each. He has scored 756 runs at an average of 29, including six half-centuries.

This is his maiden call-up to the West Indies Test squad. The Trinidad Test is historic as it marks the 100th Test between West Indies and India, since the two teams first met at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi in 1948.
