“It is clear that Brendan has been struggling for form for some time and we want to give him a chance to take some time away from international cricket and work on his game,” Clyde Butts, Chairman of the Selection Committee said.
 
“Brendan is a mentally tough cricketer and we are sure that he will be able to overcome the challenges he is now facing and come back strong,” Butts added.
 
The Second Digicel Test will be played at the Kensington Oval from Tuesday June 28th to Saturday July 2nd.
 
First ball is 10am local time (9am Jamaica time).
