The West Indies have named their squad for the first two One-Day Internationals against Bangladesh and with no resolution to the ongoing contract dispute, the squad is made up of a mix of uncapped, inexperienced and recalled players.

Floyd Reifer, who led the side during their 2-0 Test series defeat, skippers the side with Darren Sammy named as his deputy.

Rawl Lewis and Devon Smith have been recalled while Andre Fletcher, who starred in the ICC World Twenty20 squad, is also among the list of 14 names.

David Bernard and Sammy were in the squad for the West Indies' recent ODI series against India, but otherwise it is all change as strike action deprives the Caribbean side of their first-choice players.

Nelon Pascal, Kieran Powell and Devon Thomas can call on just 20 One-Day games worth of experience between them.

The three-match series begins with two matches in Dominica on 26th and 28th July before moving on to St. Kitts, where the third match takes place on 30th July ahead of a Twenty20 International on 2nd August.

West Indies: Floyd Reifer, Darren Sammy, David Bernard, Travis Dowlin, Andre Fletcher, Rawl Lewis, Nikita Miller, Nelon Pascal, Kieran Powell, Dale Richards, Kemar Roach, Devon Smith, Devon Thomas, Gavin Tonge.
