West Indies have made one change to their squad for the Trinidad leg of the Tri-Series with giant fast bowler Jason Holder replacing the injured Ravi Rampaul. The 21-year-old Holder is a rookie having played only a couple of ODIs so far while already having an Indian Premier League contract with the Chennai Super Kings.

Ravi Rampaul has been out of action ever since spraining his ankle in the opening game of the Tri Series against Sri Lanka. The 28-year-old Rampaul despite the injury bowled out his quota to set up a West Indian win.

Meanwhile Skipper Dwayne Bravo has been retained in the squad as he is expected to regain fitness by the 5th of this month when the hosts take on India at Port of Spain. Bravo had missed out in the game against India on the 1st because of a groin strain which gave Kieron Pollard, the opportunity to lead the West Indies.

West Indies Squad for Tri Series matches in Trinidad: Dwayne Bravo (Captain), Darren Bravo, Chris Gayle, Johnson Charles, Kieron Pollard, Marlon Samuels, Denesh Ramdin (Wicket Keeper), Devon Smith, Darren Sammy, Sunil Narine, Tino Best, Jason Holder, Kemar Roach
