Barbadian fast bowler Keon Harding has been selected to join the West Indies tour to Bangladesh later this month.

The 24-year-old, right-arm fast-medium bowler will replace Romario Shepherd who has been withdrawn after he tested positive for the Covid-19 virus, according to sports broadcaster Andrew Mason.

Harding has played 17 First-Class matches during which he has taken 54 wickets at an average of 25.11. His best bowling performance came against Trinidad and Tobago in February 2020 when he took 10 wickets in the match with a best of 5 for 19 in TT’s second innings.

I agree. All the best to Harding.

I suspect he is hungrier for this chance than many of the others. He is not too bad with the bat either.

This selection suggests C. Holder is not available.

Has it been stated anywhere that C. Holder is not available?
