Barath replaces Powell for Beausejour

KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – Adrian Barath was chosen to replace fellow opener Kieran Powell in the West Indies 13-member squad for the last two Digicel One Day Internationals against Australia in St. Lucia this weekend.

Barath has overcome his recent spell of injuries and gave firm evidence of his fitness with a hundred for his native Trinidad & Tobago against Guyana in their sixth round match of the Regional 4-Day Tournament last weekend at the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad.

The 21-year-old Barath has played 12 ODIs for West Indies since his debut two years ago with the second ODI against India last December in Visakhapatnam, his previous match.

Squad: Darren Sammy (Captain), Adrian Barath, Carlton Baugh Jr, Tino Best, Devendra Bishoo, Darren Bravo, Dwayne Bravo, Johnson Charles, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels.
