Johnson Replaces Anderson In West Indies “A” Team To South Africa

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua – Cricket West Indies (CWI) has announced that Jordan Johnson will replace Kevlon Anderson in the West Indies “A” Team 14-member squad for the ongoing tour of South Africa.

Unfortunately, Anderson experienced challenges with his visa documentation and was unable to travel to South Africa.  Anderson will now join the West Indies Academy team in Antigua for the two four-day, first-class matches against Emerging Ireland at the Coolidge Cricket Ground (CCG).

Johnson will travel immediately to South Africa and will be available for selection for the second and third four-day “Test” matches against South Africa “A”.  Following the recent International Cricket Council (ICC) announcement that South Africa will now host the ICC Men’s U19 Cricket World Cup in January 2024, the “A” Team call up provides Johnson with the opportunity to gain valuable experience of South African conditions.

West Indies A won the first “Test” against South Africa “A” on Friday by one wicket in a thrilling finish at Willowmore Park in Benoni. The two teams will now travel to East London for the second match, at Buffalo Park starting on Tuesday, 28 November. First ball daily is 10am local (4am Eastern Caribbean/3am Jamaica).

West Indies Academy will start their first-class series against Emerging Ireland on Saturday at the Coolidge Cricket Ground. First ball daily is 10am local (9am Jamaica).
