West Indies Announce Test Squad For India Series

Well, the 26-year-old is perhaps the heaviest man ever to play the game at the big stage.

The two-match series will get underway on August 22 at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua.

Cornwall has been running impressive performances for Leeward Islands Hurricanes in the West Indies Championship and West Indies "A". He has 260 wickets from 55 first-class matches and finished as the leading bowler in the most recent regional four-day tournament. He is a striking presence, standing over six feet tall, capable of hitting effortless sixes.

Picked for West Indies A's tour of Sri Lanka in 2016, Cornwall snatched 23 wickets at 19 apiece and was similarly outstanding with 14 wickets when Sri Lanka A toured the following year.

Rahkeem Cornwall has received a surprise maiden Test call up for West Indies for their upcoming series against India.

Interim chairman of selectors Robert Haynes, who took over from Courtney Browne last April in a shake-up of the selection panel, said Cornwall's record was hard to ignore.

There was another highly-rated young player on the fringes, but fitness issues ruled him out.

The interim selection panel of CWI headed by Robert Haynes has included Antiguan uncapped off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall in the squad.

"We believe he can provide an attacking option to our bowling attack with his sharp turn and extra bounce".

"Alzarri is undergoing remedial work and we are monitoring his recovery", Haynes said. He represents a key part of West Indies future and we do not want to rush him back.
