West Indies 13-man squad is scheduled to arrive in Georgetown, Guyana today to prepare for the upcoming two One-Day Internationals against Pakistan.

Both matches will take place at the National Stadium in Guyana.

The players will have a full training session tomorrow ahead of the first game on Sunday.

The second game will be played on Tuesday.

As expected explosive opener Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels have retained their places in the squad.

They are the only Jamaicans named to the 13-man squad.

Wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin was dropped.

Ramdin has scored only one half-century since his recall to the West Indies one-day side nearly two years ago.

The selectors have not named a specialist wicketkeeper and as a result Johnson Charles will do duties behind the stumps.

Fast bowler Ravi Rampaul, who injured his ankle in the opening match of the One-Day-International tri-series a couple of weeks ago, remains sidelined.

The remaining members of the squad are – captain Dwayne Bravo, Tino Best, Darren Bravo, Jason Holder, Kieron Pollard, Kemar Roach, Darren Sammy Lendl Simmons and Devon Smith.
