The squad also includes two other Jamaicans. They are hard-hitting opener Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels.
Leg-spinner Samuel Badree and fast bowler Fidel Edwards, who featured in the Twenty20 matches at the weekend have been dropped.
Regular captain Darren Sammy will lead the squad.
The remaining members of the squad are Johnson Charles, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Ravi Rampaul, Lendl Simmons and Dwayne Smith.
