    India’s first T20I victory on Saturday meant that India became the second team after Pakistan to have won 50 or more T20I wins in an away series. This was India’s 50th win in the T20Is, a record which Pakistan used to possess earlier.

    WEST INDIES ANNOUNCE TEST SQUAD FOR MYTEAM11 SERIES AGAINST INDIA

    Off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall makes 13-man squad for first time

    ST. JOHN’S, Antigua – Rahkeem Cornwall could make his long-awaited Test debut on home soil, when West Indies kick off their campaign in the new ICC World Test Championship against India later this month.

    The interim Selection Panel of Cricket West Indies – headed by Robert Haynes – has included the Antiguan off-spinner in the 13-member squad for the MyTeam11 Series, which is co-sponsored by Skoda and KEI.

    West Indies and India will play two Tests – from August 22 to 26 at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Cornwall’s native Antigua, and from August 30 to September 3 at Sabina Park in Jamaica.

    Cornwall has been rewarded for his impressive record for Leeward Islands Hurricanes in the West Indies Championship and the West Indies “A” Team, since making his first-class debut just under five years ago. The 26-year-old has taken 260 wickets at 23.90 apiece in 55 first-class matches and is highly regarded among his peers as one of the most effective spin bowlers in the Caribbean.

    Cornwall has also proven that he is a capable middle to lower-order batsman, averaging just under 25 in 97 innings, and good enough to have one hundred and 13 half-centuries in the first-class arena.

    “Rahkeem has been performing consistently over a long period of time and has proven to be a match-winner, so we believe his elevation to the Test squad is merited at this time,” said Haynes.

    “We believe he can provide an attacking option to our bowling attack with his sharp turn and extra bounce. He can also lend a bit of depth to the batting, so we are looking forward to him coming into the squad and making a valuable contribution.”

    The interim Selection Panel has kept faith with practically the rest of the squad that earned a sensational 2-1 series victory over England earlier this year in the Caribbean, except injured fast bowler Alzarri Joseph and left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican.

    This means that regular West Indies “A” Team captain Shamarh Brooks is the only other uncapped player in the squad apart from Cornwall. All-rounder Keemo Paul, a replacement for Test captain Jason Holder when he was forced to miss the final Test of the England series, retains his place in the squad.

    “Alzarri is undergoing remedial work and we are monitoring his recovery, but we do not think he is ready yet to last five days of a gruelling Test match,” Haynes said on Joseph.

    “He represents a key part of West Indies future and we do not want to rush him back. We have two important series coming up later in the year in India and we want to be very careful how his recovery is managed.”

    The Series gives both sides the chance to win up to 120 points – sixty points for a win – in the new ICC World Test Championship league table. A draw will be worth twenty points with zero points for a loss. West Indies will play a further five Series with the opportunity to qualify for the ICC World Test Championship final in 2021 if they finish in the top two in the league.

    West Indies are much better in Test than they are in ODI. I expect a better show from them.

    The Indian cricket team‘s administrative manager Sunil Subramaniam’s is set to be severely reprimanded by the BCCI for allegedly misbehaving with officials of the country’s High Commissions in the West Indies during the ongoing series there.

    Subramaniam, who got a 45-day extension along with Ravi Shastri-led support staff, is unlikely to be retained after the Caribbean series once the fresh round of interviews are conducted. India are touring West Indies for a full series, which ends with the Test rubber on September 3.

    “The Indian team was supposed to shoot a small advertisement on ‘Water Conservation’ as this directive came from the government. It was learnt that the two High Commissions were informed by the BCCI that Subramaniam is their point person as he is the administrative manager,” a top BCCI source told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

    “When a very senior person from Indian High Commission in Trinidad & Tobago called up Subramaniam seeking his co-operation, he told him ‘Don’t flood me with messages’. The BCCI has come to know that he refused to entertain their calls when all they were doing was to carry out the government’s directive,” the senior BCCI official added.

    Subramaniam could not be reached for a comment despite repeated attempts by PTI.

    According to a BCCI source, Subramaniam was told to co-ordinate with the top officials of Indian High Commissions in Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago for the Indian team’s shoot on ‘Water Conservation’, a project of Indian government.

    Subramaniam became team’s administrative manager in 2017.

    “The bureaucrat certainly wasn’t amused and the matter reached government corridors in Delhi and in turn ended up at CoA chief Vinod Rai’s doorstep. It is learnt that CEO Rahul Johri and his team needed to step in to ensure that things were back on track. However a severe reprimand is on cards for Subramaniam,” an official informed.

    The small video on ‘water conservation’, which will also feature skipper Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma, is expected to be shot in Port of Spain on Tuesday.

    Subramaniam is a former left-arm spinner from Tamil Nadu, who has incidentally also been senior offspinner Ravichandran Ashwin’s personal coach during his formative years.

    “As of now, he is getting a severe reprimand. It is there to be seen if Subramaniam is asked to come back before the Test series and an interim manager is sent. Even if they don’t send an interim manager, there is logistics manager Hrishikesh Upadhyay, security officer (Soumyadeep Pyne) plus media manager (Anand Subramanium) is also present. What’s his need,” a senior BCCI official questioned.

    Indian team‘s administrative manager Sunil Subramaniam to be called back for indiscipline: Report

    The Indian cricket team‘s administrative manager Sunil Subramaniam’s is set to be called back from the tour of West Indies for allegedly misbehaving with officials of the country’s High Commissions in the West Indies during the ongoing series, according to PTI.

    The news agency has earlier reported that Subramaniam, who got a 45-day extension along with Ravi Shastri-led support staff, is unlikely to be retained after the Caribbean series once the fresh round of interviews are conducted.

    ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Two former West Indies captains will join the team’s preparation ahead of the upcoming MyTeam11 Test Series against India. Brian Lara, one of the greatest batsmen of all-time, and Ramnaresh Sarwan, who was one the leading players of his generation, will be part of the pre-series camp to be held in Antigua ahead of the first Test match against India.

    They will share their immense knowledge, experience and expertise with the members of the 13-member squad ahead of the MyTeam11 Series, which is co-sponsored by Skoda and KEI. West Indies and India will play two Tests – from August 22 to 26 at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in North Sound, Antigua; and from August 30 to September 3 at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica.

    Jimmy Adams, Cricket West Indies’ (CWI) Director of Cricket, was grateful to Lara and Sarwan for coming on board and offering their time to interact with the young batsmen as they get ready for this crucial two-match series – which will signal the start of the new ICC World Test Championship (WTC) for both teams.

    “We have some good young batsman in the team who we believe will form the future of West Indies cricket. We saw some very good signs of development earlier this year in the Test matches when we played so very well to beat England and we want to see them grow and become outstanding players for the West Indies,” Adams said.

    “We have taken the step to have Brian and ‘Ronnie’ work with these players, who have demonstrated a will to learn and succeed. We know they still have the passion and love for West Indies cricket and are eager to assist and share their information with the present generation.”

    Lara, 50, is the leading runscorer in West Indies history with 11,953 runs in 131 Test matches. His mammoth 400 not out against England in in Antigua in 2004 remains the only occasion a batsman has reached a quadruple century in Test history. He also holds the record for the highest first-class score of all time – the monumental 501 not out for Warwickshire in the English Country Championship.

    Sarwan, 39, scored 5,842 runs in 87 Test matches, including 15 centuries, with a top score of 291 against England in Barbados a decade ago. In One-Day Internationals, he also scored 5,845 runs in 169 innings.

    • West Indies and India met in Test cricket for the first time in 1948. They have played 96 times – West Indies have won 30 times, India have won 20 and 46 matches have been drawn. West Indies have contested 542 Test matches in their 91-year Test history. They have won 173 times, lost 193, drawn 175 and tied once – the famous match against Australia in December 1960 at the Gabba.

    The Indian cricket team is currently in the West Indies to play a full series. Earlier on Sunday, there were some media reports which stated that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had received an email of a possible attack on the Indian team. The report also stated that the PCB passed on the information to the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). However, the BCCI denied any threat to the Indian cricket team, who are currently playing a three-day practice game against the West Indies A team in Antigua.

    There was a hoax message which was spread on social media, indicating security threat to the team. However, a BCCI source told ANI that there was no threat to the team.

    India have already won both T20I and ODI series against the West Indies. Both the teams will now compete in a two-match Test match series.

    The first Test match between India and the West Indies will start from August 22.

    India cricketers to wear jerseys with names and numbers as part of World Test Championship

    As part of the inaugural ICC World Test Championship, India cricketers will wear Test jerseys with names and number printed when they take on West Indies in the first of the two Tests in Antigua starting Thursday.

    The new jerseys were first sported by England and Australia, who kickstarted the World Test Championship with the first Ashes Test. Last week, New Zealand and Sri Lanka began their campaign and it is now turn for India, the No. 1 Test team in the world, to begin theirs which culminates at Lord’s in 2021.

    India’s cricketers wore white jerseys with their names and numbers during the three-day practice match against West Indies’ Board President XI and on Tuesday, the Indian Cricket team, on its Instagram, posted photo stories of players sporting their bran new white Test jerseys.

    Leading the pack was captain Virat Kohli, sporting his name the number 18 jersey on the back and as did the rest of the squad members.

    After winding up the T20I series 3-0 and sealing the ODIs 2-0, India move on to play Test cricket for the first time in eight months since beating Australia on their home soil to win the 2018-19 Border-Gavaskar Trophy. They began their preparations with the tour game which ended in a draw but not without offering good warm-ups to Cheteshwar Pujara, Rohit Sharma and Umesh Yadav.

    India have won nine out of the last 14 Test matches and with two more high-profile Tests with a strong following starting Thursday, Kohli will eye a winning start as India take their first step towards Lord’s 2021, where the final of the World Test Championship will be played.

    Cricket West Indies interim selection committee has named Miguel Cummins as a replacement for Keemo Paul for the first Test match of the MyTeam11 Series, which is co-sponsored by Skoda and KEI. The West Indies will face India at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground from August 22-26.

    Paul, the livewire allrounder, has a left ankle injury and will miss the match. He will remain in Antigua to continue his rehabilitation. The 21-year-old has been replaced in the 13-member squad by experienced fast bowler Miguel Cummins. Cummins, 28, made his debut three years ago against India in Jamaica. He had a memorable second match in Saint Lucia, when he had match figures of 9-102, including career-best 6-48 in the second innings.

    Floyd Reifer the interim head coach said: “With Keemo ruled out for this match, it’s good to have someone with Miguel’s quality back in the squad, as he brings experience to the team. Watching him in the last ‘A’ Team series against India ‘A’ and the training sessions his lengths have improved. He’s a very hard worker and a wicket-taker. I’m sure, if given the opportunity to play, he will make a valuable contribution in our bid to win this series.”

    The match marks the start of the ICC World Test Championship for both teams, the new two-year Test league to find out the best Test team the world. In this Series, each team can earn 60 points for a win or 20 points for a draw and this is the first of six Test Series which West Indies will play.

    England were undone by variable bounce and movement. Pace and bounce is fine as long as it is consistent. India had fast, bouncy pitches in 2016 and won 2-0.
