The International Cricket Council (ICC) hasn't ruled out the chances of introducing substitutes in Tests matches in case a player tests for coronavirus during a course of a match.

On Wednesday, Cricket West Indies announced a squad of 14 with 11 reserves but said the three players had turned down selection.

Burns is expected to reclaim his place in the batting order, surrendered at the turn of the year when a warm-up game of football in Cape Town left him with serious ankle ligament damage, but knows it will be far from easy.

"More than half of the squad were involved in the victorious Test series against England in the Caribbean past year so they will bring that experience, that knowledge and belief with them and marry it to the enthusiasm and vitality of the newcomers". The experienced batsman was in excellent touch in the West Indies's four-day championship, where he cracked an imposing 248 for Jamaica against Leeward Islands.
