Jason Mohammed, one of the only bright spots to emerge from a series whitewash by England, has been called up to the West Indies T20 squad for the first time. The 30-year old batsman struck back-to-back fifties earlier this month and could be vital to a side missing some of its biggest players.

Chris Gayle has not played international cricket since the World T20. On top of that, Dwayne Bravo’s injury and Andre Russell’s ban took away two of the world’s best allrounders from Carlos Brathwaite’s side. But there was good news on Friday, when it was learnt that Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Samuel Badree and Lendl Simmons were picked for two of the four T20Is against Pakistan.

A WICB release listing the 16-man squad on Saturday confirmed all four men were available to play the entire series.
