West Indies make three changes for ODI series


West Indies have made three changes for the five-match one-day series against Pakistan starting with the first One-day International (ODI) in Rawalpindi on December 5.

Opening batsman Wavell Hinds, pacer Fidel Edwards and wicket-keeper Carlton Baugh were dropped from the squad that reached the final of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy in India earlier this month. The visitors brought in Dwayne Smith, Marlon Samuels and Ian Bradshaw in the one-day squad.

Baugh, 25, counted as a specialist ODI player, was overlooked in favour of Denesh Ramdin who is a member of the touring party in the ongoing Test series.

Ramdin, 21, has played 14 Tests and an equal number of one-dayers and is compared with legendary West Indian wicket-keeper Jeff Dujon because of his good reflexes behind the stumps and solid batting technique.

The only new face in the tourists’ ODI squad is opening batsman Lendl Simmons who featured in a two-day game against the Patron’s XI in Lahore earlier this month and made 40.

Edwards played in the opening Test in Lahore which Pakistan won by nine wickets but was replaced by pacer Daren Powell in the Multan Test. Powell his place for the one-day series. Dave Mohammad has also been retained as the only specialist spinner in the squad.

The ODI contest would begin in Rawalpindi on December 5 followed by matches in Faisalabad (Dec 7), Lahore (Dec 10), Multan (Dec 13) and Karachi (Dec 16).

West Indies squad: Brian Lara (captain), Ramnaresh Sarwan, Chris Gayle, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Runako Morton, Lendl Simmons, Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith, Denesh Ramdin (wicket-keeper), Ian Bradshaw, Dave Mohammed, Jerome Taylor, Daren Powell.
