The Windies haven't won five consecutive matches in over 20 years. However, this week will be their best opportunity to accomplish the respective feat, as they'll once again bring their stable batting order, which now includes the recalled Marlon Samuels and Chris Gayle.
"Having Marlon back is great news for us. The injury was unfortunate, but he has been a big player for us in the last 12 months or so, the main batsman in all formats. Chris is a quality player, we have no doubt he will perform for us. He has done it many times before and we know he will be confident going into this series."
Samuels is returning to cricket competition for the first time in two months after suffering a facial injury in Australia's Big Bash League, while Gayle had requested a break during the limited-overs leg of the Zimbabwe series.
Although an additional bowler will most likely get the nod for the team, Narsingh Deonarine may very well get the opportunity to play, thus lengthening the batting order.
Chris Gayle, Kieran Powell, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Denesh Ramdin (wicketkeeper), Darren Sammy (captain), Shane Shillingford, Tino Best, Shannon Gabriel, Kemar Roach.
