West Indies pace bowler Kemar Roach has been rested for the second Test against Bangladesh in Jamaica after picking up a hamstring strain.

Roach suffered the injury after taking a five-wicket haul in the first Test in Antigua, where Bangladesh were annihilated by an innings and 219 runs.

With Roach out, the West Indies have called up seamer Alzarri Joseph for the second Test, which begins on Thursday.

Joseph last played Test cricket in August 2017 and only recently started playing cricket again after a stress fracture he sustained against New Zealand in December last year kept him sidelined for six months.

In Bangladesh’s warm-up match against the West Indies President’s XI, Joseph starred with the ball as he took figures of 4-53 off 15 overs.

West Indies’ Squad for the second Test: Jason Holder (capt), Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Alzarri Joseph, Shai Hope, Keemo Paul, Kieran Powell, Devon Smith
