Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels named in West Indies ODI Squad
West Indies name squad for England ODI series
Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels have both been named in the West Indies squad to face England in next month's One-Day Internationals.
The West Indies arrive at Emirates Old Trafford on Tuesday 19 September in the first ODI of the five-match series.
Courtney Browne, Chairman of Selection Panel of CWI, said: “With regards to the selection of the ODI squad, the panel welcomes back Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels, who will both add value to our batting and help with the nurturing of the young batsmen in the team. Both Sunil Narine and Darren Bravo have declined to be considered for ODIs in England.
"Narine has however confirmed his desire to play 50-over cricket again but has asked to play in our Regional Super50 before he is considered and Darren said he was not available for selection. Dwayne Bravo said he is still not 100% fit, but is looking at a possible return to international cricket next year.
