West Indies Unchanged For New Zealand Tests
The West Indies have named an unchanged 15-man squad for the three-Test series in New Zealand that gets underway in December.
Despite limping to a 2-0 series defeat in India after two comprehensive innings defeats, the selectors have opted to retain the same set of players for the New Zealand series.
The series begins in Dunedin on 3rd December before the series moves on to Wellington (11th-15th December) and Hamilton (19th-23rd December).
The West Indies play a New Zealand XI from 27th November, although part of their touring squad will still be playing in the ODI series in India, Aaron Redmond and Jeet Raval will open the batting for them in the absence of Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy and Darren Bravo.
Marlon Samuels and Shane Shillingford, who were both reported following the series in India for suspected illegal bowling actions, are both included in the squad as under ICC regulations, they are allowed to continue playing while independent analysis of their actions is carried out.
West Indies Test squad: Darren Sammy (captain), Tino Best, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Sheldon Cottrell, Narsingh Deonarine, Kirk Edwards, Chris Gayle, Veerasammy Permaul, Kieron Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Shane Shillingford, Chadwick Walton
