West Indies back unchanged squad to get the job done

WI v SL, second Test, squad

The West Indies have named an unchanged squad for the second and final Test match against Sri Lanka.

It is all to play for in the final Test at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium after a maiden century from Nkrumah Bonner helped the West Indies hold on for a draw in a rollercoaster series opener.

West Indies selectors will be hoping their team can go one step further in the final match in Antigua, which starts 29 March at 10am local time.

Alongside the 13-player squad, Roston Chase and Jahmar Hamilton are on standby as reserve players, with Jayden Seales remaining with the group as a development player.

Having taken a 102-run first-innings lead, the West Indies were firm favourites halfway through the first Test but quickly found themselves chasing a huge target of 375 to win. With the help of an unbeaten century from Bonner and an important 52 from Kyle Mayers they staved off defeat by six wickets, ensuring this week's series finale is a decider.

A series win would be the West Indies' second in a row, while Sri Lanka are looking for their first series victory since early 2020.
