Evin Lewis is back in the Windies limited-overs setup.

West Indies opener Evin Lewis has returned to the international fold once again after he was named in the 15-man squad for the upcoming T20 series against Bangladesh.

Lewis had created a flutter recently when he turned down a white-ball contract with Cricket Windies in October this year. The opening batsman had subsequently withdrawn from the side’s tour of India citing personal reasons and did not play a part in the recently concluded ODI series between Bangladesh and West Indies.

While Lewis makes a return to the Windies setup, there was disappointment for all-rounder Kieron Pollard and pacer Obed McCoy who miss out due to injuries.

Also making a return to the limited-overs side are pacers Kesrick Williams and Sheldon Cottrell.

“After Bangladesh won the T20 series in the West Indies, we will be expecting a highly competitive return series,” Windies Cricket chairman of selectors Courtney Browne said in a statement.

The Windies chairman also stated that he hoped to see a much larger commitment from the returning Lewis.

The defending world T20 champions will be hoping to put up a much better show in the three matches against Bangladesh after their 1-2 loss in the three-match ODI series.

The first of three T20s between the two sides will get underway on Monday at Sylhet.

WINDIES 15-MAN SQUAD

Carlos Brathwaite (capt), Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Fabian Allen, Kesrick Williams, Keemo Paul, Khary Pierre, Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Shai Hope, Sherfane Rutherford, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas.
