Uncapped Barbados fast bowler Miguel Cummins has been included in West Indies’ squad for the first Test against India in Antigua from July 21. He was a replacement for Jerome Taylor, who retired from Test cricket earlier this week.
Cummins, 25, had been left out of the original 12-man squad for the first Test, after having made the trip to Australia for the last two Tests in 2015-16 as a replacement for Shannon Gabriel. He did not play, though.
Cummins has played 41 first-class matches and taken 116 wickets at an average of 22.56. His only international for West Indies was an ODI against Ireland in Jamaica in February 2014 – he took 1 for 42 in six overs.
West Indies squad for first Test: Jason Holder (capt), Kraigg Brathwaite (vc), Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Rajendra Chandrika, Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Leon Johnson, and Marlon Samuels.
