Sarwan dropped from WI squad for tri-series

St John's: Senior batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan has been dropped from the 13-member West Indies cricket squad for the first three matches of their ODI tri-series against India and Sri Lanka starting June 28.

"All the members of the squad that attended the ICC Champions Trophy in England and Wales, except fast bowler Jason Holder and batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan, have been retained," the West Indies Cricket Board said in a statement.

Sarwan, who was brought back to the squad after 18 months during which he claimed to have been drained "mentally and emotionally", scored just one run each against Pakistan and India during the Champions Trophy.

Dwayne Bravo will lead the side in the upcoming series. West Indies could not go beyond the group stage of the Champions Trophy, beaten by South Africa and India in their preliminary matches.

The squad: Dwayne Bravo (capt), Chris Gayle, Johnson Charles, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Kieron Pollard, Devon Smith, Darren Sammy, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Sunil Narine, Tino Best, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach
