A cricket video for Cricket World TV about the latest cricket news from cricketworld.com. Find us on Facebook: facebook.com/cricketworld and Twitter: twitter.com/cricket_world as we look at the West Indies squad to tour Australia for a series of five One-Day Internationals and a Twenty20 International in February.
The headline news is the return after nearly two years of Ramnaresh Sarwan as Marlon Samuels misses out. Narsingh Deonarine is also recalled, as is Johnson Charles with Jason Holder called up for the first time and Dwayne Bravo returning from injury. Sarwan enjoyed a successful 2012 with Leicestershire and will be hoping to reach 100 in an ODI for the fourth time. Samuels, meanwhile, suffered an injury during that same game that he and Shane Warne had an onfield argument, and there will be no immediate return to Australia for him.
Over the last few years, Australia vs West Indies matches have often featured onfield battles - both with and without the ball - including Sarwan vs McGrath in a Test match and Chris Gayle clashing with Michael Clarke during the 2006 Champions Trophy in India.
The West Indies have not beaten Australia in an ODI in Australia since 1997, when Brian Lara, Courtney Walsh and Shivnarine Chanderpaul were in the same team and Darren Sammy is hoping his side can pick up where they left off when winning the ICC World Twenty20 last year and break that run of 14 matches without a win - 12 defeats and 2 no results.
