West Indies have called up opening batsman Kraigg Brathwaite and fast bowler Alzarri Joseph to the One-Day International squad to face Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates later this month.

Both Brathwaite and Joseph are uncapped in the ODI format along with Evin Lewis, who is also named in the 15-man squad.

Missing out on selection for the ODIs are Andre Fletcher and Jerome Taylor, while players like Samuel Badree, Dwayne Bravo, Chris Gayle and Darren Sammy were ineligible for selection as they have not participated in the 50-over domestic tournament last season.

Meanwhile, West Indies have also named the Twenty20 International squad for their tour of the UAE and two uncapped players – Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell – are called up to the side.

Jerome Taylor and Chadwick Walton are also included while Chris Gayle misses out after making himself unavailable for selection.

Lendl Simmons was also unavailable due to medical reasons and former skipper Sammy continues to remain on the sidelines.

Walton and Powell impressed for the Jamaica Tallawahs in the 2016 edition of the Caribbean Premier League scoring 301 and 228 runs respectively.

In their tour of the UAE, West Indies will play three T20Is, three ODIs and as many Test matches between 23rd September and 3rd November.
