West Indies have stuck to the same squad that lost the ODI series to England, minus Darren Bravo and Fidel Edwards. Again, the choice to be made will be which allrounder to leave out. West Indies: (possible) 1 Lendl Simmons, 2 Chris Gayle, 3 Dwayne Smith, 4 Marlon Samuels, 5 Dwayne Bravo, 6 Kieron Pollard, 7 Darren Sammy (capt), 8 Denesh Ramdin (wk), 9 Tino Best, 10 Ravi Rampaul, 11 Sunil Narine
New Zealand have added fast bowler Trent Boult to the squad for the one-dayers. He was already part of the Test squad but is yet to make his ODI debut. Jacob Oram missed the second Twenty20 on Sunday with a knee strain but is expected to be fit for the ODIs.
New Zealand: (possible) 1 Rob Nicol, 2 Martin Guptill, 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Daniel Flynn, 5 Dean Brownlie, 6 Tom Latham/BJ Watling (wk), 7 Jacob Oram, 8 Tim Southee, 9 Nathan McCullum, 10 Doug Bracewell/Tarun Nethula 11 Kyle Mills
West Indies team CH Gayle, LMP Simmons, DR Smith, MN Samuels, KA Pollard, DJ Bravo, D Ramdin†, DJG Sammy*, SP Narine, R Rampaul, AD Russell New Zealand team RJ Nicol, MJ Guptill, KS Williamson*, AM Ellis, DR Flynn, DG Brownlie, BJ Watling†, TG Southee, KD Mills, TS Nethula, JDP Oram
On paper Wi looks like they playing a strong side. If fit, Bravo for Simmons, is the only obvious change that would leave me feeling that a lot of good pieces were in the right places for this format.
I see Jonhson Charles in the squad - his figures dont look too shabby. Wonder if he is going to play in the West Indies A v New Zealanders game on Fri Jul 20 - Sun Jul 22 at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua.
