West Indies selectors have recalled left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican and opening batsman Sunil Ambris to the 13-man squad to tour India in October and November.
They have been selected to replace fast-bowler Miguel Cummings and seasoned opener Devon Smith, who both had disappointing performances in the recently concluded series against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
During the month-long tour, the regional team will play two Tests, five ODIs and three T20 matches.
Warrican last played for the senior squad in 2016 when the Windies toured Australia.
He has been recalled following an outstanding series against England Lions In February while representing West Indies “A”.
Ambris, 25, had his short Test career halted after playing just two matches when he sustained a broken hand last December during the ill-fated Test debut in New Zealand.
In those matches he scored just 25 runs for an average of 8.33.
Smith’s exclusion most likely means the end of his 15-year international career, in which he failed to live up to his full potential.
