The West Indies have added Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell and John Campbell to their squad for the first two one-day internationals against England.

The changes were made following injuries to Keemo Paul, Rovman Powell and Evin Lewis, as well as the four-game ban handed out to paceman Shannon Gabriel following his exchange with Joe Root in the third Test.

Brathwaite is best known to England as the man who hit Ben Stokes for four successive sixes in the final over of the Twenty20 World Cup to win the trophy in Kolkata.

Uncapped batsman Campbell, meanwhile, played in all three Tests as the Windies won the recent Wisden Trophy series 2-1 and left-arm seamer Cottrell has played six ODIs.

They will all be available for the games in Barbados, on Wednesday and Friday.

Chairman of selectors Courtney Browne explained that the trio now have a chance to push for a place at this summer’s World Cup.

‘With our squad suffering from injuries even before a ball is bowled, an opportunity presents itself for other players to make a claim for ICC Cricket World Cup spots,’ he said.

‘After a good showing as an opener in the Test matches, John Campbell – a fearless and attacking opening batter – will replace Evin Lewis who had to be withdrawn from the squad with a groin injury.’
