Kingston (Jamaica): Dec 13, 2013

 

Former West Indies fast bowler Jerome Taylor is seeking a return to the international stage following his inclusion in Jamaica‘s list of 44 called for a preparatory camp to select the squad for the upcoming regional four-day and Super 50 tournaments.

 

Taylor, who last represented the West Indies in June 2010 against South Africa in Trinidad and Tobago, is making a return to the national set-up after a two-year absence, reports CMC.

 

He has been plagued by a recurring back injury and last played for Jamaica against Trinidad in March 2011 in a four-day encounter.

 

Taylor’s last internationally recognised match was in August last year when he turned out for the Ruhuna Royals in the Bangladesh Premier League T20.

 

He has also participated in national tournaments, including the just-concluded Jamaica Premier League T20, where he represented Mandeville Thunders.

 

In 29 Test matches, Taylor has taken 82 wickets at an average of 35.64, and in 66 one-dayers he has taken 98 wickets at 26.82 apiece.

 

West Indies internationals Marlon Samuels, Sheldon Cotterrell, Chadwick Walton and Nikita Miller are among the players called for the training camp.

 

Also included are the five Jamaican players who were a part of the West Indies Under-19 team, which recently called off their tour of Bangladesh — Ramaal Lewis, Brandon King, Tristan Coleman, Marquino Mindley and Fabian Allen.
