Narine to make comeback on Sri Lanka tour
Sunil Narine will make his comeback into international cricket after being included in the West Indies' ODI and T20 squads for their upcoming tour to Sri Lanka in October.
The spinner has not played for the Windies since opting out of the World Cup earlier this year because he had issues with his bowling action.
There are eight changes to the ODI squad that did duty at the global event with Darren Sammy, Lendl Simmons, Sulieman Benn, Sheldon Cottrell, Nikita Miller, Kemar Roach, and Dwayne Smith all dropped while Chris Gayle is recovering from back surgery.
The players included for the 50-over format are Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Carlos Brathwaite, Andre Fletcher, Jason Mohammed, and Ravi Rampaul while Narine and Darren Bravo, who was injured, made returns.
Allrounders Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard have only been included in the T20 squad with Windies coach Phil Simmons saying there had been outside influences in selection.
Simmons has been suspended for his remarks with Eldine Baptiste taking over the coaching duties for the Sri Lanka tour.
ODI squad: Jason Holder (capt), Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Jonathan Carter, Johnson Charles, Andre Fletcher, Jason Mohammed, Sunil Narine, Denesh Ramdin, Ravi Rampaul, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor
