ST JOHN’S, An­tigua – In­jury-plagued An­dre Rus­sell and Dar­ren Bra­vo have been axed for the three-match One-Day In­ter­na­tion­al se­ries against In­dia start­ing next month.

In a re­lease from Crick­et West In­dies (CWI) on Fri­day, it showed that vet­er­an open­er Chris Gayle has been in­clud­ed in the 14-man squad af­ter mak­ing an about turn on his re­tire­ment.

The trio of open­er John Camp­bell, all-rounder Ros­ton Chase and seam­er Keemo Paul have been called up.

SQUAD – Ja­son Hold­er (cap­tain), Fabi­an Allen, Car­los Brath­waite, John Camp­bell, Ros­ton Chase, Shel­don Cot­trell, Chris Gayle, Shim­ron Het­my­er, Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Keemo Paul, Nicholas Pooran, Ke­mar Roach, Os­hane Thomas.
