Sunil Narine added to West Indies Test squad for New Zealand
Published on November 29, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- The West Indies Cricket Board has announced that off-spinner Sunil Narine has been added to the West Indies squad for the three Tests against New Zealand to be played next month.

Narine has played five Tests, including two against the New Zealanders.

Meanwhile, Shane Shillingford and Marlon Samuels are headed to Perth, Australia, with West Indies head coach Ottis Gibson for independent testing after both players were reported for suspected illegal bowling actions during the second Test against India earlier this month.

Concerns were raised by match officials about Samuels’ faster ball and Shillingford’s doosra.

Both are eligible to play in the first Test, starting in Dunedin on Tuesday, as they are cleared to play until the independent testing results have been submitted to the sport’s world governing body, the ICC.

Samuels, Shillingford and Gibson are expected to rejoin the squad at the weekend.

Kraigg Brathwaite, who was named in the Windies Test squad as replacement for the injured Chris Gayle, is awaiting the processing of a New Zealand visa and an Australian transit visa before departing the Caribbean.
