Windies recall for Sarwan

Batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan has been recalled to the West Indies squad for the upcoming one-day series against Australia.

The diminutive Sarwan has not represented the nation for 18 months after falling out with the coaching regime, who slammed his fitness to the point where the batsman claimed a six figure sum in damages.

However, he returns to the fold in place of Marlon Samuels, who suffered a damaged eye socket in the recent Big Bash T20 tournament in Australia.

Narsingh Deonarine is also included for the first time in more than two years as Darren Sammy leads the side with Dwayne Bravo named as vice captain.

The five-match series starts on February 1 in Perth, with a T20 international tagged on to the end of the tour.

West Indies: Darren Sammy (captain), Dwayne Bravo (vice captain), Tino Best, Darren Bravo, Johnson Charles, Narsingh Deonarine, Chris Gayle, Jason Holder, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Devon Thomas.
