Must Read

West Indies has unveiled its squad for the upcoming three-match ODI series against India, set to kick off on July 27th. The team is boosted by the return of batter Shimron Hetmyer and fast bowler Oshane Thomas. Hetmyer’s comeback is especially noteworthy, as he last appeared in ODIs for West Indies back in July 2021. West Indies has faced a string of disappointments recently, including their failure to qualify for the 2023 ODI World Cup and setbacks in the World Cup Qualifiers. Consequently, they are eager to regain their form and momentum in this upcoming series.

Desmond Haynes, West Indies’ chief selector, expressed his enthusiasm for having Shimron Hetmyer and Oshane Thomas back in the squad, highlighting their contributions in batting and bowling, respectively.

“We welcome Oshane and Shimron back into the group. Both have previously showcased their talent at the international level, and we believe they will seamlessly integrate into the team. Oshane’s pace and potential as a wicket-taker with the new ball are assets. Shimron’s batting style will be invaluable, particularly during the middle overs, and he’s also a potential match-finisher,” commented Desmond Haynes, West Indies’ chief selector.
