Before the India Series, Jason Holder and Alzarri Joseph will Return Home Early from the World Cup Qualifier

In order to manage the workload before the all-format series against the Indian cricket team, the West Indies have withdrawn all-rounder Jason Holder and pacer Alzarri Joseph from the ongoing Qualifier in Zimbabwe.
Cricket West Indies posted on their Twitter handle that "Jason Holder and Alzarri Joseph will depart early from the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers. They will miss the last two Super Six matches as they return to the Caribbean."
"This is with the view of managing their workloads ahead of the Test Series vs. India."
Lead men's team selector Desmond Haynes said in a statement that "Jason and Alzarri are two of our leading bowlers in all formats."
They further said that, "We have a full schedule for the upcoming series against India, where we begin the new ICC World Test Championship, followed by the ODIs and the five T20Is. Therefore, we had dialogue, and it was felt the best move at this time was to have two of our leading bowlers return early from Zimbabwe." 
The series against India will start with the two-match Test series starting in Dominica on July 12, followed by the second game in Port of Spain on July 20.
