Haynes: Cornwall not forgotten

Rahkeem Cornwall is a contender for selection for selection in the West Indies team for the Test series against India later this year says The Most Honourable Desmond Haynes, the lead selector of the West Indies selection panel.

Cornwall, 30, played the last of his nine Test matches two years ago against Sri Lanka but the burly off-spinning all-rounder has continued to be an outstanding bowler in the regional Four-Day Championships.

This year Cornwall was the most successful bowler in the Championships bowling 212.2 overs and capturing 35 wickets at an average of 14.34.

“Cornwall bowled well in the Four-Day competition and even though he made himself unavailable for the Headley-Weekes tournament that does not stop him from being in line for selection during the Test series against India in the Caribbean later this year,” Haynes said during a virtual news conference earlier this week.

Haynes also explained Hayden Walsh’s omission from the West Indies white ball teams.

The leg-spinner has not played international cricket since 2022.

“It’s difficult for batsmen to master a leg-spinner who also bowls the googly. Cricket West Indies has invested a lot in Walsh, unfortunately, Walsh has lost his form and confidence. We are hoping to put a program in place for players that need special coaching to help them get back on track so that they continue to contribute to West Indies cricket. Hayden is one of these players, he is 31 years and as far as we are concerned still has a future in West Indies cricket”, Haynes said. (DH) ]]>
