West Indies captain also confident that Holder and Bravo, who missed the Bangladesh tour, will fit in seamlessly

In a recent change, West Indies appointed opener Kraigg Brathwaite as full-time Test captain following a memorable 2-0 win in Bangladesh under his leadership. That series saw massive contributions from newcomers Kyle Mayers, Nkrumah Bonner and Joshua Da Silva, albeit some of them found a place in the side only because regulars like the then Test captain Jason Holder and the experienced Darren Bravo had opted out of the tour.

Now with Sri Lanka set to play two Tests against West Indies starting with the first game in Antigua from Sunday, Brathwaite – now permanently in charge of the side – and his team management will have Holder and Bravo back, leaving them with a happy headache.

“The two of them are quality international cricketers and we know what they can give [to the side],” he said in a media interaction. “Jason is the No. 1 allrounder in the world and Darren Bravo is a quality batsman. So they will fit in – [it will be] quite normal to be honest.”
