The return of left-handed stroke-maker Darren Bravo is the only difference in an otherwise predictable 15-man squad for next month's World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka

The stylish 23-year-old, who has not played for West Indies since limping out of the tour of England in June with a groin injury, joins the squad with older brother Dwayne Bravo as skipper Darren Sammy’s deputy. All-rounder Andre Russell has also been recalled after missing the T20 doubleheader against New Zealand in Florida through injury. West Indies are in Group B alongside Australia and Ireland, and are tipped to advance to the Super Eight, starting Sept 18.

The squad: Darren Sammy (c), Dwayne Bravo (vc), Samuel Badree, Darren Bravo, Johnson Charles, Fidel Edwards, Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Denesh Ramdin, Ravi Rampaul, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith.
