    Opening batsman Kraigg Brathwaite has been called up to West Indies ODI side for their upcoming series against Pakistan in the UAE. Stan Smith Pas Cher Chine . Brathwaite has played 31 Tests since his international debut in 2011 but is yet to play an ODI or a T20. The T20I squad includes two uncapped players - allrounder Rovman Powell and wicketkeeper-batsman Nicholas Pooran. Chris Gayle is not a part of the T20 squad, having made himself unavailable for selection, while Lendl Simmons has missed out due to medical reasons. Gayle was part of the West Indies T20 squad for the two-match T20I series against India in Florida last month but missed both games after failing to pass a fitness test ahead of the first T20I.The ODI squad also includes batsman Evin Lewis and fast bowler Alzarri Joseph, who are uncapped in the format. Lewis, who made his T20I debut earlier this year, recently scored a 48-ball century against India in Florida opening the batting in place of Gayle, while Joseph made his international debut in the home Test series against the same opposition.Pooran impressed in this years Caribbean Premier League, scoring 217 runs in eight innings at a strike rate of 197.27 for Barbados Tridents, while completing eight dismissals behind the stumps. Poorans inclusion boosts West Indies wicket-keeping options in the T20 squad, which include Andre Fletcher, Johnson Charles and Chadwick Walton, who last played for West Indies in January 2014.Powell, who made his first-class debut last season, also showed promise in CPL 2016 for Jamaica Tallawahs, scoring 228 runs at an average of 25.33 and taking two wickets with his medium-pace.With Kumar Sangakkara taking up the wicket-keeping gloves for Tallawahs, Walton played in the CPL as a batsman and finished as the second-highest run-getter for the side behind Gayle, with 301 runs in 13 innings, which included two fifties.The T20I squad does not include former captain Darren Sammy, who was axed from the role last month. Sammy was also excluded from the T20I squad that played against India in Florida. Gayle, Sammy, Dwayne Bravo, Lendl Simmons, Andre Russell and Samuel Badree were ineligible for ODI selection as they did not play in the domestic 50-over tournament last season, made mandatory by the WICB.West Indies will start their tour with three T20Is against Pakistan, between September 23 and 27, followed by the three-match ODI series which starts from September 30. The three-Test series, which includes a day-night match in Dubai, starts from October 13 and West Indies squad for that format will be announced later.West Indies ODI squad: Jason Holder (capt), Sulieman Benn, Carlos Brathwaite, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Jonathan Carter, Johnson Charles, Shannon Gabriel, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Sunil Narine, Ashley Nurse, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Marlon SamuelsWest Indies T20I squad Carlos Brathwaite (capt), Samuel Badree, Dwayne Bravo, Johnson Charles, Andre Fletcher, Jason Holder, Evin Lewis, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor, Chadwick Walton Stan Smith Destockage . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. Stan Smith Pas Cher France . The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead. The Czechs pulled two back in the ninth, but Shusters team of third Jeff Isaacson, second Jared Zezel and lead John Landsteiner ended with another point to secure the last Olympic berth on offer. .C. -- Rodney Hood connected from all over the court while freshman Jabari Parker was busy swatting shots and scoring in transition. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Marqise Lee hopes to play in the teams preseason opener despite missing most of training camp.Lee fully practiced Monday for the first time since straining his left hamstring during the opening day of camp. Now, after sitting out nine days and seven practices, the former USC standout is lobbying to play against the New York Jets on Thursday night.Im thinking about playing, Lee said. I want to. I dont know from this point, honestly, to tell you the truth. Its all up to the coaches and stuff. Im looking forward to it.A second-round draft pick in 2014, Lee tweaked his hamstring during the first camp session. It was the latest setback for a guy who has missed significant time with ankle, hamstring and knee injuries.We went through this injury plenty of times for the last couple of years, Lee said, estimating four or five hamstring injuries in three years. At this point in time, any time you feel it or anything like that, Im just going to leave it up to the trainers. ... If it gets worse from that point on, its their fault, not mine.Given his history, the Jaguars immediately shut him down and ordered a MRI. Tests showed no significant damage, but team doctors decided to be cautious and have Lee slowly return to full speed.It was a relief, Lee said. Its kind of nerve-wracking sometimes when things happen, but you learn to get over theem like I have. Stan Smith Soldes. But its still nerve-wracking.Lee caught 52 passes for 613 yards and two touchdowns in his first two seasons, including just 15 receptions for 191 yards and a score last year. Drafted to be the teams go-to receiver, Lee has become a fourth option at best because of injuries, behind Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and tight end Julius Thomas.His speed makes him a much-needed piece of Jacksonvilles offense, and staying healthy is the key. And it starts in the preseason, maybe even against the Jets.Im not trying to go out there to prove anything, Lee said. My thing is to go out there and just focus on what Ive been working on. Preseason is just preseason. Im not going to go out there and try to do anything crazy. Just go out there, work on the techniques and things I need to work on to get open, and thats it.Defensive end Jared Odrick (foot), defensive tackle Malik Jackson (ankle), left tackle Kelvin Beachum (knee), running back Jonas Gray (leg) and rookie defensive tackle Sheldon Day (back) missed practice Monday. Coach Gus Bradley said Beachum, who is 10 months removed from reconstructive knee surgery, is unlikely to play in the preseason opener.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball Jerseys Hockey Jerseys China Supply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '
