JOHANNESBURG: West Indies have announced a 15-man unchanged squad for the upcoming three-match Test series against Australia.

Jason Holder will captain his side in the first Test in Hobart on December 10, followed by further Tests in Melbourne (from December 26) and Sydney (January 3).

The only change came in the reinstatement of Phil Simmons as the team coach after making a public apology for an outburst over the squad selected for the ongoing tour of Sri Lanka.

Simmons was suspended in September after he alleged that he was prohibited from picking all-rounders Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard for the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka despite receiving support from chairman of selectors Clive Lloyd.
