Veteran Test fast bowler, Kemar Roach has been recalled for his first One-Day International (ODI) series in two and a half years, in a 15-man squad announced last week for the three-match series against India this month.
The 33-year-old joins the Jamaican batting pair of Nkrumah Bonner and Brandon King, along with leg-spinner Hayden Walsh, in being recalled for the three-match series in Ahmedabad from Feb. 6-11.
Bonner has played only three ODIs all coming away to Bangladesh last year when West Indies fielded a weakened side, while King played his last four ODIs two years ago.

Walsh, meanwhile, has not played in the last six months, last featuring on Australia’s tour of the Caribbean.

Roach is one of the five fast bowlers in the squad, alongside Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph, Odean Smith, and Romario Sheppard.
Kieron Pollard is leading the squad.
