Report: West Indies Recall Holder for England Test Series

Holder Makes Sensational Return to West Indies Test Squad for England Tour

West Indies cricket fans can rejoice as the enigmatic Jason Holder has been selected for the upcoming Test tour of England. The 32-year-old all-rounder, who previously opted out of the Australian series to participate in a T20 league, has made himself available for Test selection once more.

Holder’s return is a timely boost for the Windies, following his absence due to injury during the ongoing T20 World Cup. His experience and leadership qualities will be invaluable in the three-match Test series against England, which kicks off at Lord’s on July 10th. This match will mark the swansong of legendary England bowler James Anderson.

Another exciting inclusion in the squad is young fast bowler Jayden Seales. Seales impressed during a stint with Sussex in the County Championship earlier this year, bagging a staggering 24 wickets in just six matches, making him the leading wicket-taker in Division Two. His return, alongside the in-form Shamar Joseph, who heroically led West Indies to victory against Australia in Brisbane, bolsters the Windies’ pace attack.

While there’s no place for batsman Shai Hope, who famously scored twin centuries against England at Headingley in 2017, the uncapped Mikyle Louis has been drafted into the squad. This selection hints at the team’s strategy for the future, with Holder’s return providing a crucial blend of experience and youthful exuberance.
