New Delhi: Johnson Charles was on Saturday named as Darren Bravo's replacement by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for the ICC World Twenty20 squad.
Citing Test cricket as his priority at the moment, Bravo did not accept the central contract offered to him by the WICB earlier this month.
Charles has been in fine form of late, finishing as the third highest run scorer for St Lucia Zouks in the Caribbean Premier League.
The 27-year-old was part of the Windies squad in 2012 when they went on to win the T20 World Cup.
West Indies' Group 1 comprises England, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and one of the qualifiers from the first round.
Squad: Darren Sammy (Captain), Samuel Badree, Sulieman Benn, Carlos Brathwaite, Dwayne Bravo, Johnson Charles, Andre Fletcher, Chris Gayle, Jason Holder, Ashley Nurse, Denesh Ramdin Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Jerome Taylor
