Blackwood, who turns 26 next month, was dropped by the West Indies selectors for the Pakistan tour of the Caribbean earlier this year.

He regained his spot in the batting line-up for the three-Test tour of England in August/September, to place third in the WI batting averages as the hosts won the series 2-1. He scored 187 runs with a highest score of 79 and an average of 37.40. Always willing to attack, Blackwood had a strike rate of 80.95 in England.

Over the course of his 25-Test career, Blackwood has scored 1315 runs for a highest score of 112 and an average of 32.07.
