Lewis back in West Indies squad for T20 series against Bangladesh


Batsman Evin Lewis is back in West Indies’ squad for the upcoming three-match T20I series against Bangladesh, starting in Sylhet on Monday.

The left-handed Lewis hasn’t played international cricket since pulling out of the limited-overs leg of West Indies’ tour of India last month.

Also back in the squad are fast bowlers Kesrick Williams and Sheldon Cottrell.

Allrounder Kieron Pollard and the left-arm paceman Obed McCoy, who were part of the T20I squad in India, miss out due to injury.

Andre Russell and off-spinner Ashley Nurse have not yet recovered from the shoulder and knee injuries that cut short their India tours and also miss out on the matches in Bangladesh.

West Indies T20I squad: Carlos Brathwaite (capt), Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Fabian Allen, Kesrick Williams, Keemo Paul, Khary Pierre, Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Shai Hope, Sherfane Rutherford, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas
