Having recovered from their respective injuries, West Indies pacers Jerome Taylor and Kemar Roach have been included in the 13-man Test squad for the first match against New Zealand, starting on June 8.

Taylor, who last played for West Indies in November 2009, recently played for Jamaica in a one-dayer against an Ireland side in February. Roach, 25, has recovered from his shoulder injury and also escaped a car crash recently.

Off-spinner Shane Shillingford, who was cleared for a return to international cricket earlier this year following remedial work on his bowling action, is part of the squad.

West Indies Cricket Board, as it had announced earlier, has also left out Sunil Narine, who was disqualified for selection after missing the deadline to report to the training camp.

The squad:

Denesh Ramdin (capt), Sulieman Benn, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Kirk Edwards, Shannon Gabriel, Chris Gayle, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Shane Shillingford and Jerome Taylor.
