PARIS: Ramnaresh Sarwan has been recalled to the West Indies squad for the upcoming limited overs tour of Australia while Marlon Samuels was left out due to an eye injury sustained in the Big Bash league.
Right-hand bat Sarwan, 32, last played for the Windies in ODIs in June 2011 but fell out of favor with the West Indies Cricket Board because of a public dispute about coaching and training methods.
He also received damages after his fitness was publicly called into question and he lost a central contract to play for the Caribbean side.
Samuels sustained a suspected fractured eye socket while playing for the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash league, during which he was involved in an ugly confrontation with spinner Shane Warne, which saw the Melbourne Stars skipper banned.
His absence opens the door for the return of left-hand bat Narsingh Deonarine, who last played in an international one-dayer back in June 2010.
The 15-man squad, to play five ODIs and a Twenty20 match next month, will be led by Darren Sammy with Dwayne Bravo as his deputy.

West Indies squad:
Darren Sammy (captain), Dwayne Bravo (vice-captain), Tino Best, Darren Bravo, Johnson Charles, Narsingh Deonarine, Chris Gayle, Jason Holder, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Devon Thomas
