Left-handed batsmen Darren Bravo and Shimron Hetmyer, and allrounder Keemo Paul are back in the West Indies Test squad for the upcoming series in New Zealand, but Shai Hope has been dropped.
Bravo, Hetmyer and Paul all withdrew from the recent three-match Test series in England due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, but have returned to the squad at the first time of asking.
Bravo will be hoping to recapture former glories against the Kiwis, with his highest Test score of 218 coming against the Blackcaps in Dunedin in 2013.
Hope has had a poor recent run in Test cricket and after averaging just 17.50 with the bat in England has been rested.
"Shai is a player who has a tremendous future in Test cricket but at the moment he needs to reorganise his Test match game and get his batting in the longest version back to its best," West Indies' lead selector Roger Harper said.
A group of six reserves will also travel to New Zealand to help prepare the Test squad during a quarantine period and training camp, as well as providing cover for injuries.
Wicketkeeper Andre Fletcher has been named in the Windies Twenty20 squad for the first time since 2018 for the three-game series preceding the Tests.
Allrounder Kyle Mayers has also been included for the first time after starring in the recent Caribbean Premier League.
Andre Russell and top-order batsmen Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis opted not to tour because of travel concerns and quarantines related to the pandemic.
The T20 series is set to start on November 27 in Auckland, followed by games in Mount Maunganui on November 29 and 30.
The Tests are scheduled for December 3-7 at Seddon Park in Hamilton, and from December 11-15 at the Basin Reserve in Wellington.
