Jason Holder added to Test squad
West Indies fast bowler Jason Holder has been added to the squad for the first Test against New Zealand at Sabina Park starting on Sunday. Holder will be the fourth seamer in the 14-man squad that also includes Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel and Jerome Taylor. The West Indies Cricket Board did not explain why an extra fast bowler was included.
Holder, 22, has featured in the limited-overs squads of late and has played 17 ODIs and a T20. He has 25 ODI wickets with a best of 4 for 13. Holder played just one IPL game, for Sunrisers Hyderabad this season. He took part in the two-week preparatory camp in Barbados.
West Indies are still waiting on the fitness of Chris Gayle, who is due to play his 100th Test.
