Windies named unchanged 15-man squad for Oz tour

Johannesburg, Nov. 11 : West Indies have announced a 15-man unchanged squad for the upcoming three-match Test series against Australia.
Jason Holder will captain his side in the first Test in Hobart on December 10, followed by further Tests in Melbourne (from December 26) and Sydney (January 3).

The only change came in the reinstatement of Phil Simmons as the team coach after making a public apology for an outburst over the squad selected for the ongoing tour of Sri Lanka, Sport24 reported.

Simmons was suspended in September after he alleged that he was prohibited from picking all-rounders Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard for the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka despite receiving support from chairman of selectors Clive Lloyd.

West Indies will aim to salvage some pride in the second Twenty20 on Wednesday after losing both Test and ODI series against Sri Lanka. (ANI)
