Samuel Badree, the West Indies leg-spinner, will miss the only Twenty/20 Cricket match against Bangladesh due to an injury. Left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn has replaced Badree in the team.

Benn, who made a comeback to International Cricket during the Tests against New Zealand, last played a Twenty/20 for West Indies in May 2010.

The West Indies Twenty/20 squad is Darren Sammy Captain, Sulieman Benn, Dwayne Bravo, Sheldon Cottrell, Andre Fletcher, Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Andre Russell, Krishmar Santokie, Lendl Simmons and Dwayne Smith.
