ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The Selection Panel of Cricket West Indies today named a 15-member Windies One-Day International (ODI) squad for the current tour of England. 

Chairman of selection panel of CWI Courtney Browne said the return of Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels, would “add value to our batting and help with the nurturing of the young batsmen in the team”.

He added that Sunil Narine and Darren Bravo 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.
