Cameron noted that the WINDIES team is still well equipped and motivated to emerge victorious at the Daren Sammy Stadium when the 3 and final Test match bowls off in St. Lucia on Saturday, February 9.

"Jason now has the opportunity to benefit from resting his body over the period of the next Test and be well prepared for the upcoming ODI series against England which begins on February 20". He is now in a rich vein of form and has clinched 20 wickets for Guyana in just three first-class games.

He also lashed a whirlwind unbeaten 66 against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in Port of Spain last weekend, in Jaguars' sixth round encounter.

West Indies crushed England by 381 runs in the final session of the fourth day to take 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

The selectors also announced the return of Keemo Paul into the squad as a fast bowling option to replace Holder.

Holder has been a central figure in West Indies securing a first series win over England since 2009, and their first over any side other than Bangladesh and Zimbabwe since 2012.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) should modify its policy for slow over rates, Cricket West Indies president Dave Cameron said on Tuesday.

Browne praised the 22-year-old's strength for continuing to play in spite of his grief.

Opener Kraigg Brathwaite, meanwhile, inched up one place to 33rd to be the highest-ranked West Indies batsman, two ahead of his skipper Holder.

It is also deemed to be Shai Hope's turn to make the difference with the bat, in a series in which he has shown glimpses of the form that earned him back-to-back hundreds in the Headingley victory in 2017, but which hasn't quite come together as yet.
