Opening batsmen Adrian Barath has replaced Kieran Powell in the West Indies squad for the final two One-Day Internationals against Australia.

He returns to the squad after recovering from injury and scoring a century for Trinidad & Tobago against Guyana in their recent four-day game.

He debuted for the West Indies two years ago but has played just 12 ODIs due to a torrid run of injuries, last featuring against India in Visakhaptnam in December.

The series is locked at 1-1 following a thrilling tie in the third match in Saint Vincent and the final two matches take place in Saint Lucia on 23rd and 25th March in Saint Lucia.

With scores of 0, 8 and 12 so far in the series, Powell's omission comes as little surprise as the West Indies strive to build a strong partnership at the top of the order.

West Indies ODI squad: Darren Sammy (captain), Adrian Barath, Carlton Baugh, Tino Best, Devendra Bishoo, Darren Bravo, Dwayne Bravo, Johnson Charles, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels
