Ramnaresh Sarwan is set to return to international cricket for the first time since he successfully sued the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).

Ramnaresh Sarwan: Named in West Indies squad

Sarwan has been called up for the upcoming limited-overs series in Australia, 18 months after his last appearance for West Indies.

The 32-year-old, who has 173 ODI caps, was awarded 161,000 US dollars (£100,615) in damages last September following WICB comments over his fitness as they dropped him from their central contract list.

The WICB labelled the verdict by arbiter Seenath Jairam as "highly-flawed," but also stated they had considered the matter closed.

Sarwan's has been named in a 15-man squad for five one-day internationals and a Twenty20 against Australia.

Darren Sammy will lead the team which will be without Marlon Samuels after he suffered a facial injury earlier this month playing for the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League.

Kemar Roach, who is due to play for the Brisbane Heat in Saturday's BBL final, is included along with Chris Gayle after the big-hitting left-hander endured a miserable tournament Down Under.

Uncapped 21-year-old quick Jason Holder has also been selected. The opening ODI begins in Perth on February 1.

Squad: Darren Sammy (capt), Dwayne Bravo, Tino Best, Darren Bravo, Johnson Charles, Narsingh Deonarine, Chris Gayle, Jason Holder, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Devon Thomas.
