Experienced pacer Shannon Gabriel and left-arm spin duo Gudakesh Motie and Jomel Warrican are included in a new-look 15-player squad, as the West Indies look to bounce back from a disappointing performance in their recent Test series in Australia

Meanwhile, ahead of the Caribbean Test squad’s departure for Africa tours, Cricket West Indies (CWI) has officially confirmed the Team Management Unit who have been selected to support the interim coach Andre Coley for the next couple of months.

Former West Indian pacer Kenny Benjamin has been appointed as the bowling coach of the West Indies cricket team for the upcoming tour of Africa. West Indies will be locking horns with Zimbabwe and South Africa in two separate bilateral series in the coming two months.

Rayon Griffith is the assistant coach of the West Indies team and is also the Head Coach of the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). The CPL is the premier T20 franchise tournament of West Indies. Over the years, it has provided a lot of opportunities to the young players of West Indies to showcase their talent and mettle to the entire globe.

Other than these two, Denis Byam has been roped in as the Team Physio, while Rawl Lewis will be in charge as the Team Manager. Avenesh Seetaram (Analyst) and Dario Barthley (Media Officer) complete this new Team Management Unit.

Post that tour, West Indies will be travelling to South Africa for 2 Tests, 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is. The 3 ODIs will give the West Indian management, ample amount of time to fixate on their playing XI for the upcoming ICC ODI World Cup 2023.
