Ashley Nurse has been recalled in the 13-man West Indies squad for the lone T20I match against England later this month. The 28-year old off-spinner played his last international match in January 2015 for West Indies.

 Nurse has been named as a replacement for leg-spinner Samuel Badree, who was unavailable due to a prior commitment.

It should be noted that Nurse has so far gone wicketless in the four T20Is he has played since making his debut in April 2011.

However, he was the leading wicket-taker in their domestic 50-over competition - the Regional Super50 - last season.

The Caribbean side, meanwhile, have retained the other 12 players who featured in the side's nine-wicket win over India in the only T20I match in July.

Reflecting on the squad, national selector Courtney Browne said that the team is a perfect mix of experienced and young players who would easily adapt to the English condition.

"We have a good mix of experience and youth that should adapt to English conditions quickly. Coming off the series win against India in the Caribbean in July our expectations is to see the team play a highly competitive game and bring that T20 Caribbean atmosphere to England," ESPNcricinfo quoted Browne as saying.

 

West Indies are slated to play the one-off T20I match against England on September 16 in Chester-le-Street, before the two sides head into a five-match ODI series beginning September 19 at Old Trafford.
