All-rounder Jason Holder, who was part of the postponed Indian Premier League (IPL) with SunRisers Hyderabad, has been rested for the first part of West Indies' three-week high-performance camp that begins on Sunday in St Lucia.

World No. 1 Test all-rounder Holder will join at the end of the month. He is being rested due to his workload across all formats of the game in recent months and will arrive in St. Lucia at the end of the month.

The camp, which comprises 30 players, will include two 'best v best' inter-squad matches as West Indies look ahead to their final series in the ICC World Test Championship, against South Africa in June.

Test captain Kraigg Brathwaite and fast bowlers Kemar Roach and Alzarri Joseph will not be attending as they are currently competing in English County Championship and will return to the West Indies for Test series if selected.
