DARREN Bravo will represent the West Indies in an ODI for the first time in over two years after a rift with CWI president Dave Cameron saw him being side-lined. He returns to the squad, which meets Bangladesh in the three-match series starting Sunday, in Mirpur.

Having last played a West Indies ODI in October 2016, Bravo marks his return alongside Carlos Brathwaite and all-rounder Roston Chase. Jason Holder, who missed the Test series, is still recovering from an injury.
Rovman Powell will serve as captain.

Meanwhile, Bravo's inclusion, according to chairman of selectors Courtney Browne, is welcomed and should boost the team's chances of success in the series.
“Darren’s experience will add value to the batting, which in turn will place selection pressure for spots in the squad. The selection panel, therefore, takes this opportunity to wish the team much success in Bangladesh.”

Squad: Rovman Powell (C), Marlon Samuels, Devendra Bishoo, Roston Chase, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo, Shai Hope, Carlos Brathwaite, Keemo Paul, Kieran Powell, Fabian Allen, Kemar Roach, Sunil Ambris, Oshane Thomas.
