Jamaican fast bowler Jerome Taylor says he still wants to represent the West Indies in all formats of the game despite announcing his retirement from Test cricket in 2016.

In announcing his retirement two years ago, Taylor, 34, had said he would only be interested in playing One-Day Internationals and Twenty20 at the highest-level.

He was recently named in Jamaica’s 14-man squad to take part in this month’s Regional Super50 competition, paving the way for a possible West Indies return.

Taylor said he is open to all formats of the game once he is capable and physically able.

He said it is up to the selectors, both for Jamaica and West Indies to select him if they need his service.

Taylor, who was overlooked for the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League (CPL), took a contract with English team Somerset and helped them to the semi-final of the Twenty20 blast.

He last played for the regional team in 2016.

The Jamaica fast bowler has played 46 Tests, taking 130 wickets at 34.46 apiece, with best figures of 6-47 against Australia in June 2015 on home soil at Sabina Park, Jamaica.
