Deonarine back in Windies squad to play Australia

Deonarine back in Windies squad to play Australia

Left-handed batsman Narsingh Deonarine has been recalled to West Indies' 13-player squad for the first of three tests against Australia.
Deonarine will hope to add to his eight tests when the match starts Saturday after scoring a series-topping 582 runs in the regional four-day competition. He is also a useful offspinner, having claimed 20 wickets this season.
Darren Sammy was retained as captain on Tuesday after his team split the one-day internationals (2-2) and Twenty20 matches (1-1) with Australia.
Allrounder Ravi Rampaul returns after recovering from a shoulder injury and illness. But there is place for Sunil Narine, Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo or Kieron Pollard, who are all away at the Indian Premier League.
