West Indies will aim to bounce back after their humiliating defeat in the opening Test against New Zealand at Jamaica. The second Test begins on Monday at Port of Spain. The hosts were pummelled by a margin of 186 runs and New Zealand are 1-0 ahead in the three-match Test series.

IANS reported that the West Indies are likely to go with a three-pronged pace attack in the second Test against New Zealand as they seek to rebound from last week’s heavy defeat and level the series.

The West Indies were hammered by 186 runs inside four days in the first Test at Sabina Park in Kingston Wednesday, and will look for a victory at Queen’s Park Oval to stay alive in the three-Test rubber.

While they fielded two seamers and two spinners in the opening Test, captain Denesh Ramdin hinted on the eve of the Test Sunday that they could play a lone spinner as they looked to boost their fast bowling options.

Squads:

West indies: Denesh Ramdin (c & wk)), Suleiman Benn, Jermaine Blackwood, Kraigg Brathwaite, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Kirk Edwards, Shannon Gabriel, Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Jason Holder, Leon Johnson, Shane Shillingford, Kemar Roach, Jerome Taylor.

New Zealand: Tom Latham, Hamish Rutherford, Ross Taylor, Kane Williamson, Brendon McCullum (c), James Neesham, BJ Watling (wk), Ish Sodhi, Neil Wagner, Tim Southee, Mark Craig, Trent Boult.
