Kingston (St. Vincent), March 22 (IANS/CMC) Fit-again Adrian Barath has replaced out-of-form left-hander Kieran Powell in the only change to the 13-man West Indies squad for the last two One-day Internationals of the five-match series against Australia.

Barath was Wednesday named in the Windies squad and will join his teammates in St. Lucia for the last two ODIs of the series Friday and Sunday.

The 22-year-old Powell struggled at the top of the order in the three matches, managing just 20 runs from his three innings.

Barath, meanwhile, slammed 114 for Trinidad and Tobago in the regional four-day match against Guyana last weekend, his first game back following injury.

The 21-year-old right-hander averages 28 from 12 ODIs, with one century.

The series is level at 1-1 after West Indies lost the opening game by 64 runs last Friday and won the second by five wickets last Sunday.

Tuesday’s third game finished in a dramatic tie.

West Indies Squad:
Darren Sammy (captain), Adrian Barath, Carlton Baugh (wicketkeeper), Tino Best, Devendra Bishoo, Darren Bravo, Dwayne Bravo, Johnson Charles, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels.
