Holder, who plays for West Indies in all formats, has 146 wickets in 127 ODIs and a batting average of 24.62 runs. The former captain missed the West Indies' most recent ODI series, which Bangladesh swept 3-0.

The series-opening ODI against India is on Friday at the Queen’s Park Oval.

“As we all know Jason is one of the leading all-round cricketers in the world and we’re happy to have him back in the team," West Indies lead selector Desmond Haynes said Sunday. "He will be refreshed, re-energized and ready to go and we can expect to see his brilliance on the field as well as meaningful contributions off the field.”

Nicholas Pooran leads the 13-player squad, with West Indies set to face another tough series at home.

India beat 2018 World Cup champion England by five wickets on Sunday to clinch their three-game ODI series 2-1.

West Indies and India will also play a five-match Twenty20 series, starting at Tarouba on July 29.


Squad: Nicholas Pooran (captain), Shamarh Brooks, Keacy Carty, Jason Holder, Shai Hope, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Gudakesh Motie, Keemo Paul, Rovman Powell, Jayden Seales.
