The West Indies have drafted in dashing Barbados batsman Kirk Edwards to replace Brendan Nash for the second Test against India in Barbados.
Edwards, 26, played in the One-Day International series that India won 3-2 and there are no other changes to the 13-man squad following the 63-run loss in the opening match in Jamaica.
“It is clear that Brendan has been struggling for form for some time and we want to give him a chance to take some time away from international cricket and work on his game,” Clyde Butts, Chairman of the Selection Committee said.
“Brendan is a mentally tough cricketer and we are sure that he will be able to overcome the challenges he is now facing and come back strong."
West Indies Test squad: Darren Sammy (captain), Adrian Barath, Carlton Baugh, Devendra Bishoo, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Fidel Edwards, Kirk Edwards, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Lendl Simmons
