West Indies captain Chris Gayle has been included in Jamaica’s 13-man squad to face Nevis in the quarterfinal round of the Stanford 20/20 cricket competition in Antigua on Saturday.

Gayle was forced to return home from the tour of South Africa, after failing to recover from a broken left thumb. The injury was sustained in the second Test match.

The explosive opener takes over the captaincy from Tamar Lambert, who has been dropped from the squad.

Marlon Samuels, Brenton Parchment, Jerome Taylor and Darren Powell, are also included in the squad.

The cricketers will depart on Thursday and return on Sunday.

The winner of the Jamaica versus Nevis match will face the winner of the Antigua versus Guyana encounter, in the second semi-final on February 23.
