REUTERS: West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder and batsman Darren Bravo will return to the squad for the two-test series at home to Sri Lanka, the country's cricket board (CWI) said on Friday.

Holder and Bravo both missed last month's 2-0 series win in Bangladesh after they opted out of the tour due to health concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Holder, who had led West Indies in 37 tests in five-and-half years and is currently the format's top-ranked all-rounder, was earlier replaced by opener Kraigg Brathwaite as the test captain.

The opening test will be played from March 21-25 followed by the second test from March 29-April 2. Both tests will be held at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua and Barbuda.

Squad: Kraigg Brathwaite (captain), Jermaine Blackwood (vice-captain), Nkrumah Bonner, Darren Bravo, John Campbell, Rahkeem Cornwall, Joshua Da Silva, Shannon Gabriel, Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph, Kyle Mayers, Kemar Roach, Jomel Warrican.
