West Indies recalled fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell, batsman Shimron Hetmyer and all-rounder, Roston Chase, to the ODI squad for a 3-match home series against Australia at Kensington Oval, Barbados from July 20-24.

West Indies Recalled Pacer Sheldon Cottrell, Batsman Shimron Hetmyer, And All Rounder Roston Chase

The trio of Sheldon Cottrell, Shimron Hetmyer, and Roston Chase had missed out on selection earlier for the team’s last 50-overs assignment, against Sri Lanka in March, for failing to meet the team management’s fitness standards.

Allrounder Roston Chase and middle-order batter Shimron Hetmyer featured in the Test and T20I legs, respectively, of the just-concluded home series against South Africa, but Sheldon Cottrell, the left-arm quick, has not played for West Indies since November 2020.

Batting allrounder Kyle Mayers, who made his ODI debut against Bangladesh earlier this year, and offspinner Kevin Sinclair, who is uncapped in ODIs, didn’t find a place in the squad, but Anderson Phillip, the fast bowler who made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka in March, kept his place in the side.

The three-match series will be played at Kensington Oval in Barbados on July 20, 22, and 24. It will be Australia’s first tour of the Carribean since a tri-nation series in 2016.

West Indies Last Played The Longer White Ball Format In March

West Indies last played the longer white-ball format in March when they swept Sri Lanka 3-0. Since then they have drawn a two-Test series with Sri Lanka and then lost a five-match home T20 series to South Africa 3-2 earlier this month, both with very different squads.

“This squad is coming off a comprehensive series win against Sri Lanka which should boost their confidence going into what is expected to be a tougher contest against Australia,” said lead selector Roger Harper.

Before the ODI games, the two teams will play a five-match T20 series in St Lucia starting on Saturday.

West Indies ODI squad: Kieron Pollard (captain), Shai Hope, Fabian Allen, Darren Bravo, Roston Chase, Sheldon Cottrell, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Anderson Philip, Nicholas Pooran, Romario Shepherd.

Cricket West Indies Selectors Name Provisional 17 Man Squad For 2 Tests Versus South Africa

Cricket West Indies (CWI) selection panel on Friday (June 4) named a provisional 17-man squad for the upcoming Test Series against South Africa. The squad is expected to be further cut down to an official 13-members on Monday (June 7).

It will be South Africa’s first bilateral tour to the Caribbean since 2010, followed by a tri-series in 2016 that also featured Australia. The tour, which had to be rescheduled from 2020, will include two Test matches and five T20s, from June 10 to July 3 this year in St Lucia at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground and Grenada at the National Cricket Stadium, respectively.

Cricket West Indies Selectors Name Provisional 17 Man Test Squad For South Africa Test Series As Jayden Seales, Shai Hope, Kieran Powell, And Roston Chase Named

Young Trinidad and Tobago pacer Jayden Seales has been named in the Cricket West Indies’ 17-member provisional squad for the two-match Test series against South Africa, starting on Thursday. The Cricket West Indies Selection Panel also announced that pacer Chemar Holder was unavailable for selection due to injury.

Making a comeback to the 17-member squad were openers Shai Hope and Kieran Powell and all-rounder Roston Chase, all of whom were not part of the home Test series against Sri Lanka.

“The selectors have also revealed that four (4) other young fast bowlers Keon Harding, Preston McSween, Marquino Mindley, and Nial Smith will remain in St Lucia to assist the Test squad with their preparations,” the Cricket West Indies said in a statement. 

In their last bilateral encounter in the Windies in 2010, South Africa won the three-match Test series 2-0 (the second match was a draw) and produced a white-ball sweep, winning the T20 and ODI series 2-0 and 5-0 respectively.

Shai Hope, Roston Chase, And Kieran Powell Returns In Provisional 17 Man Test Squad For Tests Vs South Africa

Jamaican speedster Marquino Mindley, who had recovered from COVID-19 last week, will remain in St Lucia along with fellow pacers Keon Harding, Preston McSween, and Nial Smith to “assist the Test squad with their preparations”. The 19-year-old Jayden Seales’ only first-class match so far was for West Indies A in New Zealand last December, and in all, he has played only ten professional games at senior level.

Shai Hope‘s last first-class game was the Manchester Test in July 2020, but in the intra-squad fixture, he scored 106, the highest score of the match. Roston Chase, who missed out on a West Indies central contract last month, sparkled both with ball and bat.

After taking four wickets in the first innings for Team Hamilton, he closed out a three-wicket win with an unbeaten 45 off 50 balls in the second. Kieran Powell, who top-scored with 95 in that innings, too, earned a recall, after having played the last of his 40 Tests in Bangladesh in 2018.

West Indies squad: Kraigg Brathwaite (Captain), Jermaine Blackwood (vice-captain), Nkrumah Bonner, Darren Bravo, Roston Chase, Rahkeem Cornwall, Joshua Da Silva, Shannon Gabriel, Jahmar Hamilton, Jason Holder, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Kyle Mayers, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales, Jomel Warrican.

IPL 2020: 5 Cricketers Who Can Earn Late Call-Up As The Replacement

The much-awaited IPL 2020, which will be the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League, is going to begin soon. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will host the entire IPL 13 between 19th September and 10th November 2020.

Since last March, the world cricket was stopped due to the pandemic, which also forced to postpone the IPL 2020 (it was earlier scheduled between 29th March and 24th May 2020). Recently, the game has been restarted globally and the IPL franchises are also ready to begin their journey in the IPL 2020.

Though all the franchises have almost sorted out their full squad ahead of the IPL 2020, still they can look at some other players for the replacement purpose in the late period of the forthcoming cash-rich tournament.

Here we are talking about the top five cricketers who can earn the late call-up in the IPL 2020 as the replacement

Roston Chase

The 28-year-old Caribbean all-rounder Roston Chase is currently in great form in every format. After winning the Player of the Series award in the Test series in England (England cricketer Stuart Broad also won the Player of the Series award in that Test series), Chase continued the same form in the recently concluded CPL 2020.

Serving for St Lucia Zouks in the CPL 2020, Chase scored 225 runs (average 37.50) and also took 9 wickets in 11 matches. During that tournament, he scored two fifties, including his best T20 knock 66 runs.

Though he hasn’t very high experience in the T20 cricket (16 matches) and also has no experience in the IPL, his latest form is enough to bring a new opportunity in the IPL. Due to the same ownership in the CPL and IPL, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) can obviously add him in the squad during the IPL 2020 as a foreigner replacement. Also, other IPL franchises can look at him similarly.

CPL 2020: The New Norms Would Never Change Basics Of The Game – Roston Chase

The West Indies all-rounder Roston Chase, who is currently playing in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2020) for the St Lucia Zouks franchise, has said that the new safety norms will never affect the basic of the games amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The significant change done in the cricket rule is the prohibition of the use of saliva on the ball. International Cricket Council (ICC) had introduced this rule to curb the spread of the virus. But many cricket experts were against this move, saying that the bowlers will be at a disadvantage because they need some assistance to shine the ball.

However, since the new rule has been implemented, two international Test series have been played and bowlers haven’t complained much about the saliva ban. The spinner Roston Chase also believes that the ban on usage of saliva won’t change the ‘basics of the game’.

“Yes, the use of saliva to shine the ball is prohibited [now] but I feel the basics of the game of cricket will never change,” he said confidently while speaking to

Roston Chase on playing behind closed doors:

Speaking about playing with no fans in the stadium, Roston Chase said that playing in front of a crowd — is always a good feeling but nothing can be done because of the prevailing situation. However, he hopes that next year, they would play with spectators in the stadium.

“It’s always good to have the crowds to play in front of, but with the circumstances that are on right now, I think the guys have to be lenient, playing with just two teams, and support staff.

“Hopefully the next year or whenever we come back to play we can have the crowds. We know all the people in the Caribbean will be locked on, watching on TV this year.”

Meanwhile, Roston Chase is having a decent CPL. He is the highest run-scorer for his team in the seven matches so far, with 170 runs at an average of 34 and has two half-centuries to his name.

Watch – Rahkeem Cornwall Takes A Stunning Catch In Slips

West Indies decided to bring in Rahkeem Cornwall in place of Alzarri Joseph in the deciding Test match of the ongoing Wisden Trophy against England in the third Test at Old Trafford, Manchester. In fact, many of the cricket boffins questioned Jason Holder’s team selection of bringing in the spinner in place of the seamer as he opted to field first after winning the toss in overcast conditions.

As we know Rahkeem Cornwall is a big man and weighs a whopping 140 kgs. Thus, it is easy for him to move swiftly in the field. In fact, Cornwall has a very simple and repetitive bowling action and he did found turn on the opening day of the third Test match.

It was great reflexes from Rahkeem Cornwall

However, Cornwall showed that he has quick reflexes. England opener Rory Burns tried to cut the ball against Roston Chase but could only edge it to first slip, where Rahkeem Cornwall took a sharp one-handed catch. The ball was traveling at a decent speed but Cornwall was able to hold on to a fine catch to remove the England opener, who was looking settled.

Meanwhile, this was the fourth time that Roston Chase had dismissed Rory Burns in the Test matches, out of which three dismissals have come in this series. Burns has scored 15 runs against Chase in the 40 balls he has faced against the off-spinner.

On the other hand, Rahkeem Cornwall went wicketless on an opening day. The off-spinner bowled well as he got the turn from the surface but he didn’t have the rub of the green on his side.

England has got themselves into a commanding position after a fine alliance of 136 runs between Jos Buttler and Ollie Pope. The hosts were in a pickle when they lost four wickets for 122 runs but both the right-hander were able to get England back into the contest. England finished the first day at 258-4.

England Vs West Indies 2020: Day 4 – Caribbean Late Batting Collapse Sets Up An Interesting Chapter For The Final Day

On the fourth day of the second game of the three-match Test series between the hosts England and the visitors West Indies at Old Trafford (Manchester), England pacers secured the big first innings lead after their domination with the second new ball during the West Indies’ first innings. However, still, at the end of the day, England are not a very comfortable position to bet for winning on the final day.

While day three was entirely washed out due to the rain, West Indies started the fourth day on 32/1. While once they were batting on 242/4, the visitors were suddenly bundled out for 287 runs. At the stumps of the day, England are leading by 219 runs after scoring 37/2.

Caribbean opener Kraigg Brathwaite and the nightwatchman Alzarri Joseph provided a solid start on the fourth day morning session. They set up the 54 runs partnership for that second wicket before Joseph lost his wicket on 32 runs.

However, the Test vice-captain Brathwaite continued his solid batting with Shai Hope. At the lunch, West Indies were batting on 118/2. Just before that lunch, English opener Dom Sibley, who scored a century in the first innings of this match, mistakenly used saliva on the ball and the on-field umpires quickly disinfected the ball.

In the early second session, Hope once again disappointed by losing his wicket after scoring 25 runs. However, he and Brathwaite set up the 53 runs partnership for the third wicket. Soon after that dismissal, Brathwaite completed his fifty.

Shamarh Brooks and Brathwaite built up another strong 50+ partnership as they set up the 76 runs partnership for the fourth wicket. After scoring 75 runs off 165 balls (8 fours), Brathwaite was caught and bowled by the pacer Ben Stokes.

Before the tea break, Brooks completed his fifty. The visitors were batting on 227/4 at the tea break.

England pacers Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes dominated in the final session

After the four overs of the last session, England took the new ball when it became available. Since then, Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes showed their incredible bowling performances as West Indies lost their last six wickets for just 45 runs.

While Brooks was dismissed for 68 runs off 137 balls (11 fours), Roston Chase fought really hard and it massively helped his team to escape from the follow-on. Chase scored 51 runs off 85 balls (7 fours) before losing his wicket. The last five batsmen (including one not out) failed to reach the double-digit scores, including three ducks.

Broad (3/66) and Woakes (3/42) both bagged three wickets each while the left-arm pacer Sam Curran (2/70) also took two wickets. Also, Ben Stokes (1/29) and Dom Bess (1/67) got one wicket each.
