Windies call for Ryan Hinds

Player:RO Hinds, Mashrafe Mortaza, Shakib Al Hasan
Event:Bangladesh in West Indies 2009

DateLine: 17th July 2009


Ryan Hinds has been added to the West Indies' squad for the second Test as the hosts attempt to square the series against Bangladesh.


West Indies will once again be forced to field a second string XI as many of their leading players are still in dispute with the West Indies Cricket Board.


WICB Vice President Dave Cameron said that any players who made themselves available would be considered for selection.


"I cannot say (that) if any of the players changed their minds they would be back into the team for the second Test, but I think that they should be given a look at," Cameron said.


Recall Hinds had earlier played throughout the home series with England earlier this year but managed just 91 runs in the four Tests. The poor form forced his exit for the return series.


The tourists, bidding to win their first series at the National Cricket Stadium in St George's, have been hit by an injury scare to skipper Mashrafe Mortaza.


He fell on his right knee while bowling in the first Test and spent the last two-and-a-half days of the match off the field.


Nazmul Hossain has been flown out to provide cover for Mortaza, who is not expected to play in Grenada.


Shakib Al Hasan, who was one of Bangladesh's heroes with the ball in the opening match, is likely to take over the captaincy.


West Indies: F Reifer (capt), D Sammy, R Austin, D Bernard Jr, T Best, T Dowlin, R Hinds, K McClean, N Miller, N Pascal, O Phillips, D Richards, K Roach, C Walton.


Bangladesh: M Mortaza (capt), S Al Hasan, E Haque Jr, I Kayes, J Siddique, M Alam, Mahmudullah, M Hossain Jr, M Ashraful, M Rahim, N Hossain, R Hossain, R Hossain, S Hossain, S Hossain, T Iqbal.
