Chris Gayle will miss the West Indies' One-Day International series in India and Marlon Samuels has been handed a recall to a 15-man squad.

Gayle is recovering from injury and also missing out from the squad that ended the recent series against Bangladesh are batsman Kirk Edwards and left-arm spinner Nikita Miller.

Along with Samuels, batsman Leon Johnson, all-rounder Dwayne Smith and fast bowler Jerome Taylor have been added to the squad.

Samuels and Smith last played in the ODI series against England in March as well as the ICC World T20 in Bangladesh while Taylor has not played an ODI since 2010, but his call-up follows a recent return to international cricket with the Test squad.

The West Indies play five ODIs in India between 8th and 20th October, beginning their tour with a brace of games against India A in Mumbai.

After the ODIs, they will play a Twenty20 International in Cuttack and three Tests.

West Indies ODI squad: Dwayne Bravo (captain), Darren Bravo, Jason Holder, Leon Johnson, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Darren Sammy, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith, Jerome Taylor
