Jason Holder and Darren Bravo have been named in the 13-man squad for the first of the two Tests matches at home against Sri Lanka. Kraigg Brathwaite will be the full-time Test captain, as announced by the Cricket West Indies earlier, and Jermaine Blackwood will continue to act as his deputy.

Both Holder and Bravo were among 10 players who didn't tour Bangladesh recently citing COVID-19 concerns. They are the only two players who have been called back; Shamarh Brooks and Roston Chase haven't made it back. Shane Dowrich, who didn't tour Bangladesh due to personal reasons, continues to be unavailable.

Squad for :hbd: 1st Test: Kraigg Brathwaite (C), Jermaine Blackwood (vice-captain), Nkrumah Bonner, Darren Bravo, John Campbell, Rahkeem Cornwall, Joshua Da Silva, Shannon Gabriel, Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph, Kyle Mayers, Kemar Roach, Jomel Warrican

"It is good to be able to put together a Test squad with a number of players coming off very good performances in their last series in Bangladesh. Very encouraging. It is a fantastic opportunity to build on the good work that was done in Bangladesh. It is very important to continue the process of working hard, playing with great passion, playing with determination and a great desire to succeed. Doing that consistently will bring us the right results.," lead selector Roger Harper said.

"A number of players seized the opportunity that the tour of Bangladesh presented and booked a place for themselves in the Test team for this series. This now means that there is keen competition for places which should drive better individual performances and that of the team. I also think that these players are looking forward to displaying their skills on home soil," Harper added.

The first Test will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium from March 21-25.
