Jerome Taylor has formally indicated to the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) that he has come out of retirement and is available for selection for Test cricket.
This decision means he is now available for selection in all three formats of the game, the WICB said in a release.
The 32-year-old fast bowler had announced his retirement from the longest version of the game last July.
“I believe I still have a lot of cricket left in me and I know I can still offer a lot to West Indies cricket in the Test arena,” said Taylor. “If selected, I will look to put my best foot forward and give my all for the team. We have some young players in the group at the moment and I believe with my experience, I can add to the team going forward.”
Chairman of the West Indies Cricket Board’s Selection Panel, Courtney Browne, welcomed Taylor’s decision to come out of retirement.
West Indies are preparing to face Pakistan in a three-match Brighto Paints presents Q Mobile Cup series, later this month (April 21 – 25), starting with the historic 50th Test at Sabina Park.
