Darren Sammy, who was initially dropped from the West Indies ODI squad to face South Africa, has now been recalled in place of the injured Kemar Roach. West Indies will play five ODIs against South Africa with the first ODI scheduled to take place on January 16th.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) announced the move on December 24th, even as allegations of victimisation regarding Sammy and fellow all-rounders Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard, continued to swirl around the region.

Sammy, Bravo and Pollard were all left out of the initial 14-man squad announced on December 20th, prompting the players’ attorney Ralph Thorne to accuse the WICB of victimisation, stemming from their roles in the abandoned tour of India this year in October.

Sammy now joins the Windies led by 23-year-old lanky fast bowler Jason Holder who was announced to replace Bravo as captain.
