St. Sitts: A shoulder injury to Jason Holder has opened doors for Rovman Powell to captain the Windies side for the first time in his career, for the One-Day International series against Bangladesh.
Powell didn’t have a good time in their previous ODI assignment against India, scoring just 61 runs in five innings but has been in excellent touch playing in the T10 league where he mustered 177 runs at an astonishing strike rate of 226.92. He was instrumental in Northen Warriors lifting the title and was the Man of the Match for scoring a 25-ball 61.
The Windies will also welcome back Darren Bravo and Carlos Brathwaite in the squad. Both of them missed the ODIs against India but were part of the T20Is.
Roston Chase who last played an ODI in 2017, against India was also recalled to the squad.
Rovman Powell (captain), Marlon Samuels, Roston Chase, Devendra Bishoo, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo, Shai Hope (wk), Carlos Brathwaite, Keemo Paul, Kieran Powell, Fabien Allen, Kemar Roach, Sunil Ambris, Oshane Thomas.
