WI squad for the tri-series' Jamaica games

  • Dwayne Bravo (capt), Chris Gayle, Johnson Charles, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Kieron Pollard, Devon Smith, Darren Sammy, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Sunil Narine, Tino Best, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach
  • Out: Ramnaresh Sarwan, Jason Holder

Batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan has been dropped from the West Indies squad for the first half of the tri-series involving India and Sri Lanka, which begins on June 28. Fast bowler Jason Holder was also left out of the 13-man squad that was named, on Saturday, for the Jamaica leg of the tournament. There were no other changes made to the squad that played the Champions Trophy in England.

Wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin, who was suspended for two ODIs for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct when he claimed a catch off Misbah-ul-Haq during the Champions Trophy game against Pakistan, will be available to play.

Sarwan had been recalled to the West Indies team after a contentious 18 months away from the game - during which he claimed to have been hurt "mentally and emotionally" by national team's coaching regime - for the limited-overs tour of Australia earlier this year. Since then, apart from a century against Zimbabwe at home, he totalled 40 runs in seven matches. In the Champions Trophy, he scored 1 against Pakistan and 1 against India.

West Indies failed to qualify for the Champions Trophy's semi-finals. They were off to a good start in the tournament, beating Pakistan in a low-scoring thriller, but were then beaten by India and tied a rain-hit must-win game against South Africa, as a result of which South Africa progressed to the knockouts on net run rate.

The teams play two games each in Jamaica in the tri-series, with West Indies scheduled to take on Sri Lanka at Sabina Park in the tournament opener on June 28, before playing India on June 30. The tournament then shifts to Port of Spain.

Sarwan is fit only in Test Matches now. He do not have stamina to play ODI or T20 cricket

1.Charles 2.Gayle 3.Darren bravo 4.Samuels 5.Pollard 6.Dwayne bravo 7.D.Ramdin 8.Sammy 9.Rampaul 10.Narine 11.Roach This XI is good.But two out of Gayle,Darren bravo and Samuels should put a solid foundation to hit hard freely at the death overs.WI should win this because they are the home team and they have had enough time to ready than SL or India.India is more tired and they have only few days to get ready to this tournament.
