Gabriel is back with the WI team for the Zimbabwe Tests

Jan 18, 2023

Due to Jayden Seales’ knee injury, West Indies have called up seasoned fast bowler Shannon Gabriel for their forthcoming tour of Zimbabwe. They have also added two left-arm spinners, Gudakesh Motie and Jomel Warrican, to their Test team.

Seales wasn’t available for selection since he was still healing from knee surgery. Due to an injury, Anderson Phillip was also unable to work. Shamarh Brooks was not included in the roster.

With 56 Test appearances under his belt, Gabriel last competed against Sri Lanka in November 2021. In November of last year, he shared the top wicket-taking position for the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in the Super50 Cup. While Motie, who made his debut against Bangladesh in June 2022, gets another chance, Warrican made his final appearance for the West Indies in the same series in Sri Lanka.

Lead selector Desmond Haynes explained, they looked at the conditions they anticipate playing in, and picked two left-arm spinners who didn’t go to Australia in Motie and Warrican.  Seales has been one of the greatest fast bowlers since he began bowling for the team in 2021, but because he is not available, they have decided that Gabriel would be the ideal fit to fill that position.

Gabriel is a skilled bowler with more than 10 years of experience playing at the international level. He is familiar with the conditions in Zimbabwe from when they triumphed there in 2017.

The Team:

Captain – Kraigg Brathwaite , Jermaine Blackwood, Nkrumah Bonner, Tagnarine Chanderpaul, Roston Chase, Joshua Da Silva, Shannon Gabriel, Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph, Kyle Mayers, Gudakesh Motie, Raymon Reifer, Kemar Roach, Devon Thomas, Jomel Warrican

West Indies play two Test matches in Zimbabwe, with the first Test beginning on February 4 at the Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo. According to Cricket West Indies, West Indies will play a three-day exhibition match against a local team from January 28 to 30 at Bulawayo Athletic Club.
