Windies squad announced for Bangladesh T20Is

Chris Gayle Rested by Windies for T20Is Against Bangladesh

West Indies won that match by 72 runs while defending 199.

Captain Carlos Brathwaite says West Indies need to be relaxed and play with freedom, as they prepare to face a unsafe Bangladesh side in the opening Twenty20/International of the three-match series here tonight.

Chairman of selectors, Courtney Browne confirmed saying: "We have rested Chris Gayle and have added left-arm pacer, Sheldon Cottrell for variety to the bowling attack".

The squad, belatedly announced late yesterday and nearly 24 hours before the first game at Warner Park here, sees little change from the unit which contested the Hurricane Relief T20 at Lord's earlier this year. "The team reflects the last squad that performed well in the charity match in the United Kingdom".

West Indies swept the Test series 2-0 while Bangladesh rebounded to capture the ODI series 2-1, winning the decisive third match by 18 runs at Warner Park here on Saturday. He comes back into the squad in place of Rayad Emrit. The big lefthander who has punished bowlers the world over will not feature after playing in the recent ODI series.

Still, those have been high-end smartphones, which makes its presence on the Galaxy A series a bit more interesting. Huawei could be the first company to launch a foldable smartphone in the world.

Squad: Carlos Brathwaite (c), Samuel Badree, Sheldon Cottrell, Andre Fletcher, Evin Lewis, Ashley Nurse, Keemo Paul, Rovman Powell, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Chadwick Walton (wk), Kesrick Williams.

Russell had recently injured his hamstring in the first ODI against Bangladesh and missed the two subsequent matches after that. It was feared that his recurring injury may have aggravated, but his inclusion in the T20 squad is a sign that the injury isn't too serious.

After today's match, the team will travel to Fort Lauderdale where they face the Bangladeshis in two more T20s at the only ICC recognised venue in North America, the Central Broward Regional Park.

West Indies don't play global cricket till November after this T20I series.
