Veteran all-rounder Andre Russell has been recalled to the West Indies team for the two-match Twenty20 International series against Sri Lanka in March.
Fit-again Russell has earned the recall and is now set to feature for the first time since he limped out of West Indies’ ill-rated ICC 50-over World Cup campaign in England last June with a knee injury.
He has not represented West Indies in a Twenty20 International in 19 months.
The selectors have also recalled Test and ODI batting star, Shai Hope, fast bowler Oshane Thomas and left-arm spinning all-rounder Fabian Allen to the 14-man squad.
Hope last played against Afghanistan in November before missing the series against India and Ireland.
Making a return to the West Indies squad is Shimron Hetmyer, who was left out the ongoing one-day series in Sri Lanka after failing a fitness test last month. Chief selector Roger Harper said Hetmyer has since attained the required fitness level, becoming available for selection and has been included in the squad.
