4 West Indies players to make debut for their country
The squad announced by the West Indian board doesn’t include big names, Chris Gayle, Jason Holder and Dwayne Bravo aren’t interesting to travel to Pakistan. In the similar fashion, Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine played PSL for Multan Sultans and Lahore Qalandars are also not ready to travel Pakistan with their team. That’s why four players are going to make their debuts for West Indies.
Pakistan Cricket Board, on the other hand, announced their squad for the series straight after the day of the PSL3 final, which included three new names performing brilliantly in PSL3. Shaheen Shah Afridi, Hussain Talat, and Asif Ali were those three youngsters. However, West Indian Cricket Board due to their players’ security concerns delayed the announcement of their squad.
As we know, West India skipper Jason Holder has pulled-out of touring Pakistan. So, Jason Muhammad has appointed the responsibility to lead the West Indian side.
