Shillingford back in West Indies Test squad

Port of Spain: Offspinner Shane Shillingford was called into the West Indies squad for the second Test against Australia on Thursday, 18 months after his last appearance.

Shillingford, 29, played the last of his five Tests in November 2010 after his bowling action was deemed illegal on the tour of Sri Lanka. But he has since undergone remedial work and took 38 wickets in five matches during the recent domestic Caribbean season.

Australia won the first Test by three wickets in Barbados on Wednesday. The second Test starts on Sunday at the Queen's Park Oval, with the third and final Test in Dominica from April 23.

West Indies 2nd Test squad: Darren Sammy (capt), Kirk Edwards, Adrian Barath, Carlton Baugh (wk), Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Narsingh Deonarine, Fidel Edwards, Kieran Powell, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Shane Shillingford.
