Bravo sees no way back into West Indies set-up

Samuels Joseph ruled out of NZ ODIs

The teams will face each other in three apiece of ODIs and T20Is to be played between 20th December and 3rd January.

Dwayne Bravo is unlikely to return for West Indies again as he sees his future exclusively in the various short-format leagues around the world. Bravo, who last represented the Caribbean side in the T20 series against Pakistan in September past year, felt his chances of making a comeback to the national side are remote.

Dwayne Bravo does not see a route back into the West Indies side as he instead focuses on plying his trade around the world with Twenty20 franchises.

"I am looking at these tournaments as a chance to continue playing cricket", Bravo said. As long as I can play cricket, I am happy.

"I was dropped while I was fit".

In fact, the 24-year-old has played just six T20s overall, the last four coming in the 2015 Caribbean Premier League when he gathered 39 runs for Barbados Tridents.

The all-rounder, who has not featured in Tests for West Indies in seven years and not played in ODIs since 2014, asserted that his absence from the game at the start of this year hurt him the most.

An injury during the Big Bash League (BBL) in December 2016 saw him being ruled him out of the IPL this year. He regained fitness and later played in the CPL and BPL.

He would add: "I didn't play for nine months".

Off-spinner Narine, 29, who is now a T20 specialist, with 262 games to his name, will also miss the tour, for what a Cricket West Indies release said were "personal reasons". Playing BPL, we made it to the semi-finals.

The next match of the West Indies tour is the opening game of the one-day series against the Black Caps at the same venue on Wednesday. He, however, bagged two wickets by conceding just 12 runs on day two in Sharjah as his side Maratha Arabians secured their first win in the competition against Team Sri Lankan Cricket.
