The Cricket West Indies (CWI) Selection Panel today named the West Indies Men’s 13-member squad for the first Betway Test Match against South Africa. Nevisian, Kieran Powell and Barbadian, Shai Hope were both recalled after solid performances in the Best vs Best match.
Hope last played Test cricket in England in July last year, while Powell’s last Test appearance was in Bangladesh in December 2018.
Speaking on the selection of Powell and Hope, Roger Harper, the Lead Selector said:

The full squad reads as follows:
