Port of Spain (West Indies), Apr 13(ANI): The West Indies have included off spinner Shane Shillingford in the 14-man squad for the second Test against Australia starting on Sunday, and would consider exploiting their weakness against spin by playing three spinners.
Leg spinner Devendra Bishoo and all rounder Narsingh Deonarine played in the first Test at Barbados, and there is a possibility Shillingford might also join them for the Port of Spain Test, which would be played on a wicket tipped to offer more assistance to the spinners.
Shillingford was suspended in late 2010 for an illegal action but was cleared last June by the ICC to resume at international level following a biomechanical bowling analysis conducted by a University of Western Australia research team, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.
Australian batsmen comfortably dealt with Bishoo at Kensington, Oval, but found Deonarine a tougher proposition on the fifth day when the off-spinner made good use of a deep rough to shock the visitors with four wickets.
The Australians, who arrived in Port of Spain on Thursday, can win the series if they win at Queen's Park Oval. (ANI)
