Twenty20 World Cup star, Carlos Braithwaite, has been dropped from the West Indies one-day squad to face Pakistan in the three-match series bowling off on Friday in Guyana.

The 28-year-old all-rounder, T20 captain, was one of two changes to the squad whitewashed by England last month, with Test opener Kraigg Braithwaite also omitted.

They have been replaced by wicketkeeper/batsman Chadwick Walton and fast bowler Miguel Cummins in the 13-man squad which will again be led by Test captain Jason Holder.

Carlos Braithwaite’s one-day form had come under the microscope in recent series and the scrutiny intensified following his struggles last month against England.

A big-hitting lower order batsman, he managed 42 runs in three innings and failed to take a single wicket in 24 overs which also proved expensive.

The second ODI is scheduled for next Sunday with the final game set for April 11.

SQUAD — Jason Holder (captain), Devendra Bishoo, Jonathan Carter, Miguel Cummins, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Ashley Nurse, Kieran Powell, Rovman Powell, Chadwick Walton.
