The Cricket West Indies selection panel has decided to recall Jason Holder for the assignments against India.

Former captain Jason Holder on Sunday returned to a 13-member West Indies squad for the upcoming three-match ODI series against India, starting July 22.

The seasoned all-rounder was not part for the preceding home T20I series against Bangladesh, but the Cricket West Indies selection panel decided to recall him for the assignments against India.

Nicholas Pooran will continue to lead the side after his impressive outing in the series against Bangladesh. While the West Indies was swept aside 0-3 by Bangladesh, Pooran scored a 39-ball 74 in the third T20I.

Shai Hope will be Pooran’s deputy.

“As we all know, Jason is one of the leading all-round cricketers in the world and we’re happy to have him back in the team,” chief selector Desmond Haynes was quoted as saying by Cricket West Indies in a press release.

“He will be refreshed, re-energised and ready to go and we can expect to see his brilliance on the field as well as meaningful contributions off the field as well.” After the debacle against Bangladesh, Haynes hoped the team would be able to turn things around against India.

“We had a very challenging three matches against Bangladesh in Guyana so we will be looking to rebound when we face India in the conditions in Trinidad.

“We have seen some growth among some players, but overall we need to regroup and play better against the Indians,” Haynes added.

The three matches will be played on July 22, 24 and 27 at the Queen’s Park Oval.
