Pakistan in West Indies 2021
Holder, Brooks return for West Indies Test Team against Pakistan
St. Kitts: Fast bowler Chemar Holder and middle-order batsman Shamarh Brooks have both been recalled to the West Indies squad announced Monday to face Pakistan in a two-Test series.
There is no place however for bowling spearhead Shannon Gabriel, who is continuing his recovery from injury, and left-handed batsman Darren Bravo who has been "given a break" after being Covid bubbled for a lengthy period.
Holder made his Test debut in New Zealand last year but has not featured since then.
Brooks last played in New Zealand and has earned a recall following a polished century in the Best v Best four-day match last week.
The two-match series, which forms a part of the new cycle of matches in the World Test Championship, will be played at Sabina Park from August 12-16 and August 20-24.
West Indies squad:
Kraigg Brathwaite (captain), Jermaine Blackwood (vice-captain), Nkrumah Bonner, Shamarh Brooks, Rahkeem Cornwall, Roston Chase, Joshua Da Silva, Jahmar Hamilton, Chemar Holder, Jason Holder, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Kyle Mayers, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales, Jomel Warrican
