West Indies selectors gave a surprise to veteran players Keiron Pollard and Sunil Narine as they come back to the West Indies side after a long time. The Windies selectors announced the 14-member team on Monday (local time) for the first two T20Is against India.
Andre Russell has also been included in the squad, but he will undergo a fitness test before taking part in the T20Is. The team will be led by Carlos Brathwaite and left-handed opener John Campbell. Left-arm spinner Khary Pierre has also been included in the team.
