Roach joins first-class squad
Kemar Roach has replaced his injured West Indies team-mate and fellow fast bowler Tino Best as the only change to the Barbados 13-man squad for the WICB first-class semi-final match against Windward Islands at Windsor Park in Dominica from May 2 to 5.
Best has a right ankle injury which he sustained in the last first-class match against Trinidad & Tobago at Queen’s Park Oval in Port-of-Spain when Barbados romped to victory by ten wickets in roughly one day and two-and-a-half sessions on April 11.
The squad is scheduled to leave for Roseau on April 29.
Squad: Kirk Edwards (captain), Sulieman Benn, Rashidi Boucher, Kraigg Brathwaite, Jonathan Carter, Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shai Hope, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Javon Searles, Kevin Stoute. (BCA)††
