BRIDGETOWN: John Cam­pbell, Carlos Brath­waite and Sheldon Cottrell have been called up to the West Indies squad for the upcoming first two One-day Inter­nationals against England.

The changes to the 14-man squad were made due to injuries to opening batsman Evin Lewis, as well as all-rounders Keemo Paul and Rovman Powell.

It is Campbell’s first call-up for limited over cricket. The 25-year-old made his Test debut in the just-completed series against Eng­land, which the West Indies won 2-1. He scored 176 runs at an average of 35.2.

Brathwaite, who hit Ben Stokes for four consecutive sixes to secure West Indies’ victory in the final of the 2016 World Twenty20 against England, has played 28 ODIs and 35 Twenty20 Internationals.

Cottrell, a left-arm pace bowler, has appeared in six ODIs and 10 Twenty20 Internationals.

The first two matches of the four-match ODI series will be played at Kensington Oval here in Bridgetown on Wednesday and Friday.

Revised squad: Jason Holder (captain), Fabian Allen, Devendra Bishoo, Car­los Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, John Campbell, She­ldon Cottrell, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Ashley Nurse, Nich­olas Pooran, Kemar Roach, Oshane Thomas.
