The West Indian selectors have decided to hand Darren Bravo a maiden West Indies call-up for the first two one-day internationals against India later this month.

The first two ODIs are on June 26 and 28 in Kingston.


The squad: Chris Gayle (capt), Denesh Ramdin (wk), Lionel Baker, Darren Bravo, Dwayne Bravo, Sulieman Benn, David Bernard, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Narsingh Deonarine, Runako Morton, Ravi Rampaul, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Jerome Taylor.
