Bridgetown (Barbados): June 30, 2014 


Star player and opening batsman  Chris Gayle has been rested and Kieron Pollard has returned to a 13-man West Indies Twenty20 (T20) squad announced on Sunday for the two-match series against New Zealand in Dominica next weekend.


West Indies have been a force reckon with in T20s. They won the ICC World T20 title in 2012. So, New Zealand certainly have a task on their hands when they will take on the homes. The side, led by Darren Sammy, includes Darren Bravo and Christopher Barnwell as well.

West Indies squad:

Darren Sammy (captain), Samuel Badree, Christopher Barnwell, Darren Bravo, Sheldon Cottrell, Andre Fletcher, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Andre Russell, Krishmar Santokie, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith.
