England announce squad for second Test against West Indies
The first Test match might not have gone in England national cricket team’s favour but they are destined to bounce back and deliver the much-needed result in the home conditions. Jason Holder-led West Indies team deserve a lot of credit for beating England in their own den. But the series is still on and England will be looking forward to responding straight away in the next match to keep their series winning hopes alive.
Meanwhile, England have announced their squad for the second Test match against West Indies. Ollie Robinson and Sam Curran earned a call-up in England’s squad for the upcoming match at Old Trafford.
The pace duo comprising James Anderson and Mark Wood have both been rested after their efforts in the first Test. Anderson picked up match figures of 3-104 and Mark Wood picked two wickets in England’s four-wicket loss which came at the cost of 110 runs.
Sussex seamer Robinson received his maiden Test call-up. He was in England’s reserves list for the first Test. He was impressive with the ball for Team Buttler in England’s intrasquad warm-up match where he returned with impressive bowling figures of 2-7 from nine overs during Team Stokes’ first innings.
Previously, it was also announced that Joe Denly had been dropped as regular Test captain Joe Root returned to the squad after the birth of his second child.
Squad: Joe Root (c), Jofra Archer, Dom Bess, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Zak Crawley, Sam Curran, Ollie Pope, Ollie Robinson, Dom Sibley, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes
