The 31-year-old off-spinner is set to appear for third-placed Windward Islands, when they face leaders Jamaica in the Regional 4-Day Tournament starting Friday at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica.
“Obviously, I am extremely happy that I will be playing this weekend,” said Shillingford who has played 14 Tests for West Indies, grabbing 65 wickets at 32.32 apiece. He has never appeared in a One-day or Twenty20 International.
“I have put in a lot of hard work over the past few months. It was a bit tough at first, but once the coaches told me what I had to do, I went straight to work. I just had to be really patient and I worked really hard.”
“I am happy for the advice that I have received from the coaches, especially Vasbert, and I must also thank everyone for the support they have given me during this period,” he said.
Shillingford also underwent a biomechanical bowling analysis conducted by a research team at the University of Western Australia March 4 in Perth.
