"The Test team has been selected keeping in mind the conditions in the West Indies and the recent performances of players during the domestic and global season.The team is a fine blend of experience and youth, and we believe that team will do well", the Express Tribune quoted Inzamam as saying. "He has been a match-winner since he first played for Pakistan and we shouldn't negate his contribution", Iqbal argued.

"The conditions here may not suit the brute force style of play but once we have a look at the centre wicket, we can then go about accordingly - training accordingly, working out strategies and going forward that way".

The West Indies' highest-ranked batsman is skipper Jason Holder in 89th position.

They have been replaced by wicketkeeper/batsman Chadwick Walton and fast bowler Miguel Cummins in the 13-man squad which will again be led by Test captain Jason Holder.

"We spoke to Kraigg after the last series and we've spoken to him since". He had an outstanding 50-overs tournament (Regional Super50). He also scored a hundred in the warm-up against England in St Kitts. "I'm looking forward to seeing what he can provide in the top order", Law said.
