In-form opening batsman Lendl Simmons has replaced Adrian Barath in the West Indies' Test squad ahead of the first game against Bangladesh.

Barath suffered a hamstring injury during the first One-Day International and has not recovered sufficiently to take his place in the Test squad.

Simmons scored a century and a half-century, and 202 runs in total, during the three-match ODI series - which the West Indies won 2-1 - and last played a Test against India in June.

The opening game begins in Chittagong on 21st October before the series concludes in Dhaka from 29th October.

West Indies Test squad: Darren Sammy (captain), 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, Lendl Simmons
