Cricket: England likely to replace Tufnell with Caddick for fifth Test
Wednesday 11 March 1998
The option of using Alec Stewart as a wicketkeeper and dropping Jack Russell has also been ruled out, sources close to the team said, leaving the quick bowler Caddick for Tufnell as the only likely change to the side beaten by 230 runs in the fourth Test in Guyana. West Indies lead the series 2-1 with two Tests left.
Caddick played in the first three Tests, taking seven wickets, but was left out of the fourth Test so England could play two spinners. Tufnell has taken only five wickets in four Tests, while Robert Croft took six wickets with his off-spin after coming into the side in Guyana.
West Indies have dropped their openers, Stuart Williams and Sherwin Campbell, and brought in Philo Wallace, the Barbados captain, and the veteran Clayton Lambert. They are also expected to replace Jimmy Adams with Roland Holder.
ENGLAND (probable 12; v West Indies, Bridgetown, tomorrow): *M A Atherton, A J Stewart, M A Butcher, N Hussain, G P Thorpe, M R Ramprakash, R C Russell, R D B Croft, A R Caddick, D W Headley, A R C Fraser, P C R Tufnell.
WEST INDIES (from): *B C Lara, P A Wallace, C B Lambert, C L Hooper, S Chanderpaul, J C Adams, R I C Holder, D Williams, I R Bishop, C L E Ambrose, C A Walsh, N A M McLean, D Ramnarine.
