Experienced batsman Ryan Hinds has been added to the West Indies squad for the second and final Test against Bangladesh which begins in Grenada on 17th July.

Hinds comes into the squad which is reduced by two as youngsters Kraigg Brathwaite and Andre Creary have been released to participate in the TCL Group West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Under-19 tournament in Jamaica.

Bangladesh won the first match by 95 runs in Saint Vincent  and the squad is otherwise unchanged after a player strike left the WICB in a race against time to assemble a squad.

Floyd Reifer captains the team again with Darren Sammy as his understudy.

28-year-old Hinds has played 14 Tests for the West Indies, the was against England in Port-of-Spain earlier this year.

West Indies: Floyd Reifer (captain), Darren Sammy (vice-captain), Ryan Austin, David Bernard junior, Tino Best, Travis Dowlin, Ryan Hinds, Kevin McLean, Nikita Miller, Nelon Pascal, Omar Phillips, Dale Richards, Kemar Roach, Chadwick Walton
