Batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan looked forward to making his recall count after being named in the West Indies ODI squad to tour Australia later this year.
Sarwan has not played international cricket in 18 months, and in interim sued the West Indies Cricket Board for unfairly questioning in public his fitness and attitude. The former captain won the case and was awarded $161,000 in damages in September 2012.
His return is effectively as a replacement for fellow right-hander Marlon Samuels, who suffered a serious facial injury during his stint with the Melbourne Renegades in Australia's Twenty20 Big Bash League.
"I'm happy to be back in the team. Obviously, I've been out for a while, but it feels really good to be back representing the West Indies. I am really looking forward to this tour and I'm confident things will go well for us in Australia," said Sarwan.
"As a team, we like the ball when it comes on to the bat, so we should enjoy the conditions in Australia. I have played there a few times and we have other experienced members of the team who have played there as well.
"The team has been playing some good cricket recently, so I will just fit in. I am an experienced player at the international level and will look to play my part and make a contribution in anyway I'm called upon."
The Aussies and Windies will meet for five ODIs, the first of which gets underway at the Western Australia Cricket Association Ground in Perth on 1 February.
