The West Indies team have received a boost as they have recalled veteran duo of Sunil Narine and Keiron Pollard in the T20I squad for the first two matches against India. Andre Russell has also been included in the squad, but he will undergo a fitness test before taking part in the T20Is.
The prolific all-rounder, Pollard was left out of the West Indies team for the recent 50-over World Cup and played his last T20 in India last November. Narine’s last appearance in a T20I for West Indies came against England almost two years ago at Chester-le-Street. He opted out of the 50-over World Cup because of a finger injury.
"It's not just about the present but we are also looking at the T20 World Cup coming up next year and it is important that we find the right combination of players and the right formula for defending our title,” interim chairman of the selection Panel Robert Haynes said.
