Harding to replace Romario Sheperd in WI ODI Squad

The Cricket West Indies (CWI) Selection Panel has named Keon Harding as the replacement for Romario Shepherd in the One-Day International (ODI) squad that will play three ODIs later this month.

All-rounder Shepherd returned a positive COVID-19 test in his Guyana hometown and will therefore be unavailable for the Bangladesh tour. In accordance with the established Government stipulations, Shepherd will remain in Guyana where he is undergoing a period of isolation that unfortunately will extend beyond the team’s travel period. Some members of the touring party departed today while others will leave tomorrow.

Following established medical protocols, CWI started the first of a series of COVID-19 tests, on all members of the Bangladesh touring party on January 2and following receipt of the results today, CWI can confirm that all other members of the touring party have returned negative results. All members of the touring party took their second and final pre-travel COVID-19 test yesterday.

Harding, an exciting young 24-year-old fast bowler, was among the traveling reserves for the Sandals West Indies Test tour of England last summer.
