Brothers playing for West Indies

Who were the last pair of brothers to play together for West Indies before Kyle and Shai Hope asked Mervyn Hartman from Australia

Kyle Hope joined his younger brother Shai as a Test player in last week's day-night match at Edgbaston. They were the 12th pair of brothers (including two pairs of half-brothers) to play for West Indies in Tests, but the first to take the field together since Darren Bravo's debut series, in Sri Lanka in 2010-11, which were the final Tests in which his half-brother Dwayne Bravo played. The first pair of West Indian Test-playing brothers were Edwin and Wilton St Hill, from Trinidad, who both appeared during the first series in the Caribbean, against England in 1929-30, although not together. Later in the 1930s, George "Jackie" Grant and his brother Rolph both captained West Indies. Victor Stollmeyer joined his brother Jeff in one Test in England in 1939, while spinners John and Jimmy Cameron played ether side of the Second World War. Since then Cyril and Robert Christiani, Roy and Norman Marshall, Denis and Eric Atkinson, Bryan and Charlie Davis, and Robert and Marlon Samuels all won West Indian caps (not necessarily together), as did the fast-bowling half-brothers Pedro Collins and Fidel Edwards. They played six Tests together, sharing the new ball in four of them.

That sense of humour is steeped into anti-blackness. The source of the humour is no surprise.

Is that where you stand?
