Adrian Barath returns from injury and Ravi Rampaul is back after being rested, but there is still no place for Chris Gayle in the West Indies squad for the fifth and final one-dayer against India. Gayle, who missed out on the first four games because of his controversial radio interview, was supposed to meet with the WICB on Wednesday to discuss his comments. The board has maintained Gayle would not be selected until they met with him to clear the air, but there was no word on the meeting when the squad was announced.

Barath, the 21-year-old opener, has been undergoing rehabilitation after suffering a hamstring injury that caused him to miss the 2011 World Cup. Prior to the third ODI, he was asked to spend a week practicing at the Sagicor High Performance Centre in order to be considered for selection for the Test series starting on June 20 in Jamaica. He replaces Kirk Edwards, who struggled in the last two games, while Danza Hyatt makes way for Rampaul. Barath averages 32 from eight ODIs, with one hundred.

West Indies lost the first three games to lose the series but bounced back to win the fourth game by 103 runs. The final game will be played in Jamaica on Thursday.

West Indies squad: Darren Sammy (capt), Carlton Baugh (wk), Devendra Bishoo, Darren Bravo, Adrian Barath, Ravi Rampaul, Anthony Martin, Kieron Pollard, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Lendl Simmons.
