Joseph returns from back injury in 12-man squad to face Bangladesh

West Indies


West Indies fast bowler Alzarri Joseph is set to return from a lengthy injury layoff in Antigua, where a 12-man squad has been named to take on Bangladesh in a two-day game starting June 28. Joseph sustained a stress fracture in his back on a tour of New Zealand last December. Joseph, 21, broke into the West Indies national side as a 19-year old in 2016, and has since played six Tests and 14 ODIs. A Cricket West Indies release said he has been involved in an intense programme focussed on bowling, strength and conditioning, and had played in an Antigua-based T20 competition last month.

The 12-man squad is captained by Barbadian Shamarh Brooks, and also includes West Indies internationals Shimron Hetmyer and Vishaul Singh. It also includes 22-year old batsman Tagenarine Chanderpaul, son of former West Indies batting legend Shivnarine.

The two-day practice match is the only first-class warm-up game before a full tour where Bangladesh will play two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is against the West Indies. The first Test begins on May 4 at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium in Antigua.

Squad: 1 Shamarh Brooks (capt) 2 John Campbell 3 Tagenarine Chanderpaul 4 Jahmar Hamilton 5 Shimron Hetmyer (wk) 6 Alzarri Joseph 7 Keon Harding 8 Shayne Moseley 9 Gudakesh Motie 10 Romario Shepherd 11 Vishaul Singh 12 Odean Smith
