West Indies batsman Kieran Powell has earned a recall to the Test squad for the series opener against Pakistan.
Powell, 27, is in line for his first Test appearance since 2014 after being named in a 13-man squad for the clash at Sabina Park starting Friday.
The left-hander averages just 27.48 in the five-day format but received the backing of Courtney Browne, the chairman of the selection panel.
"We are happy that Kieran is once again available as an option for us to open the batting," Browne said.
"West Indies cricket has invested heavily in him over the years and with the void of openers within the Caribbean, the panel felt a need to fast track him through our A-Team programme last year with a view in helping him to bridge that gap."
Shimron Hetmyer and Vishal Singh have also been included in the squad for potential debuts.
On Singh, Browne said: "Vishal has been one of the more consistent batsmen in the Regional 4-Day Tournament over the last few seasons and had a very good A-Team series against Sri Lanka last year.
"His hundred over the weekend for the WICB President’s XI against the Pakistanis helped to fortify in our minds that he has a place in our squad.
"He gives us the option of a solid middle-order batsman around whom our more free-scoring players can bat."
The clash in Kingston is the first of a three-match series.
