The West Indies have added fast bowler Jason Holder to their Test squad two days before the first match against New Zeland begins in Jamaica.

Holder is yet to play a Test but has played 17 One-Day Internationals and a Twenty20 International since making his international debut against Australia in February 2013.

The 22-year-old joins fellow quick bowlers Shannon Gabriel, Kemar Roach and Jerome Taylor in a 14-man squad for the Sabina Park opener.

The Barbados man has played just 21 first-class matches in his career, taking 56 wickets at an average of 21.33, and was recently in action during the Indian Premier League, where he represented the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

West Indies Test squad: Denesh Ramdin (captain & wicket-keeper), Sulieman Benn, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Kirk Edwards, Shannon Gabriel, Chris Gayle, Jason Holder, Shane Shillingford, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor
