Opening batsman Adrian Barath has recovered from a hamstring injury  and will take his place in the West Indies' 15-man Test squad to take on India.

Barath missed the two-match series in Bangladesh and his return comes at the expense of Lendl Simmons, the man who replaced him following the injury he picked up in the first One-Day International in Dhaka.

Having remained with the squad despite his injury, Barath will fly on to India from Bangladesh with the rest of his team-mates on 3rd November.

There are no other changes ahead of three matches in Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai.

The first Test will be played on 6th November and the West Indies will name their squad for a series of five One-Day Internationals, which begins in Cuttack on 19th November, at a later date.

Barath, 21, has played seven Tests, ten ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals in his career to date.

West Indies Test squad: Darren Sammy (captain), Adrian Barath, Carlton Baugh, Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Fidel Edwards, Kirk Edwards, Kieran Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Shane Shillingford
