West Indies veteran Chris Gayle has “declined determination” for his group’s one-day universal and Twenty20 arrangement against India, it was affirmed on Sunday (October 7).
Gayle, 39, will miss the five-coordinate ODI arrangement and three T20s, however will be accessible for the Windies one year from now, including at the Cricket World Cup.
Andre Russell is sidelined because of damage, while Alzarri Joseph should breeze through a wellness test before leaving for India.
“As we proceed with our Cricket World Cup arrangements, the forthcoming voyage through India gives an extraordinary chance to uncover a portion of our young ability,” West Indies director of selectors Courtney Browne said.
“Opener, Hemraj Chandrapaul, all-rounder Fabian Allen and quick bowler Oshane Thomas will get their chance to exhibit their abilities, alongside Sunil Ambris, who is coming back to the overlap.
“We will be without our stalwart, Chris Gayle, for this Indian visit and the following visit against Bangladesh as he has declined choice as of now, be that as it may, he has made himself accessible for the choice for the visit of England to the Caribbean and the CWC in 2019.”
The Windies’ T20 squad sees the arrival of Darren Bravo and Kieron Pollard to global cricket.
Bravo last played for the Windies in late 2016, while Pollard has been off the global scene for a little more than a year.
The primary match of the ODI arrangement between the Windies and India is on October 21.
