Sunil Narine replaces injured Roach

New Delhi, May 31: West Indies' mystery offspinner Sunil Narine is likely to replace the injured Kemar Roach who is out with a shin injury for the third Test against England which is expected to start on June 7 in Birmingham on Thursday.

Having lost the first two matches and the series to England, West Indies hope to play for pride in the third and final Test which starts next week.

There are rumours about Chris Gayle being included in the squad for the third Test, while the latest update is that Sunil Narine, who played a vital role in Kolkata Knight Riders' maiden IPL victory after claiming 24 wickets off just 12 matches, is likely to make his Test debut against England next week.

Narine, who has played eight one day internationals and two Twenty20 internationals, is yet to make Test debut.

West Indies are playing their last and final Test against England in Birmingham, which is scheduled to start from June 7.
