Alzarri Joseph added to West Indies squad for second Test
Apart from the addition of Joseph, who took part in the 2016 Under-19 World Cup, the selectors have not made any changes to the squad which was picked for the first game.
In the 2016 U-19 World Cup, the 19-year-old played a key role in West Indies’ victory by picking 13 wickets from six games at an average of 13.76 and was the joined third highest wicket-taker.
Barring Shannon Gabriel, West Indies did not pick any other genuine pace bowler for the first Test and opted for the seam bowling all-rounders in Jason Holder and Carlos Brathwaite.
In the spin department, West Indies depended on Devendra Bishoo and Roston Chase while Kraigg Brathwaite also chipped in with 14.5 overs.
Currently, along with Joseph, West Indies have another pace bowling option in Miguel Cummins, who is still uncapped at the Test level.
Joseph has only played eight first-class matches in his career so far, taking 24 wickets at an average of 24.45, including two five-wicket hauls.
