Flamboyant West Indies opener Chris Gayle will be rested for the two Twenty20 Internationals against New Zealand in Dominica.

All-rounder Dwayne Bravo will also be out of action as he is still recovering from a shoulder injury he sustained during the Indian Premier League (IPL).

However, all-rounder Kieron Pollard, who has not played any international cricket since July 2013 due to a knee injury, is set to make his comeback.

Fellow all-rounder Christopher Barnwell and batsman Darren Bravo have both been included in the 13-man squad as well.

But, there was no place for all-rounder Marlon Samuels, pace bowler Ravi Rampaul and opening batsman Johnson Charles.

West Indies Twenty20 Squad: Darren Sammy (capt), Samuel Badree, Christopher Barnwell, Darren Bravo, Sheldon Cottrell, Andre Fletcher, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Andre Russell, Krishmar Santokie, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith
