England announce unchanged Test squad for Caribbean tour

England retained the 16-player squad that whitewashed Sri Lanka last month, for the upcoming tour of the West Indies.

Surrey's Ollie Pope, who was initially selected for Sri Lanka but left early to get game time with the second-tier Lions side, missed out while Joe Denly, who sat out in the 3-0 win against Sri Lanka, will travel as a batting cover for the Test series.

Jason Roy also missed out on maiden Test call despite speculations.

Ben Foakes, who was only added as a cover for injured Jonny Bairstow in Sri Lanka, retained his spot after earning player-of-the-series award.

The 15-man one-day squad also has a familiar look as the countdown to next summer's World Cup continues.

Left arm pacer David Willey returns and Mark Wood is included ahead of Olly Stone.

England play three Tests, five ODIs and three T20Is on their tour of the West Indies, staring next month.

England Test squad:

Joe Root (c), Moeen Ali, Jimmy Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Ben Foakes, Keaton Jennings, Jack Leach, Adil Rashid, Ben Stokes, Olly Stone, Chris Woakes

England ODI squad:

Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Joe Denly, Alex Hales, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood
