Bridgetown: West Indies captain Chris Gayle will be rested for Friday's Twenty20 International against Australia.
Gayle has been sidelined to allow the nagging groin injury that has affected him over the last two months more time to heal.
Gayle led West Indies in the third and final Test which the Aussies won by 87 runs to secure a 2-0 series win, but team management have chosen not to give him a few more days to overcome the problem.
The big left-handed opener however, has been named in the 14-member squad for the one-day international series which opens next Tuesday at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex in the island of St Vincent.
West Indies and Australia contest five ODIs with two being contested at Queen's Park Stadium in Grenada (June 27 and 29) and two more at Warner Park in St. Kitts (July 4 and 6).
Uncapped opening batsman William Perkins will replace Gayle at the top of the order for the Twenty20 International.
Sewnarine Chattergoon, with whom Gayle opened the batting in the first innings of the third Test, was not chosen in either line-up, after he sustained an ankle injury while fielding in the Test.
The two squads also include uncapped batsman Andre Fletcher. The 21-year-old is one of the more talented batsmen in the Caribbean, and has shown his penchant for the shorter form of the game with outstanding performances in the Stanford Twenty20 Cup.
All-rounder Kieron Pollard and wicketkeeper/batsman Patrick Browne have earned recalls to the ODI squads.
Twenty20: Sulieman Benn, Dwayne Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Fidel Edwards, Andre Fletcher, Xavier Marshall, William Perkins, Kieron Pollard, Daren Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Kemar Roach, Darren Sammy, Ramnaresh Sarwan and Jerome Taylor.
ODI: Sulieman Benn, Dwayne Bravo, Patrick Browne, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Fidel Edwards, Andre Fletcher, Chris Gayle, Xavier Marshall, Kieron Pollard, Daren Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Darren Sammy, Ramnaresh Sarwan and Jerome Taylor.
