Jos Buttler will be replaced by Evin Lewis, a left-handed opening batter from Trinidad and Tobago.

In 57 One-Day Internationals, the flashy hitter has scored 1847 runs for West Indies.

Oshane Thomas, a Jamaican right-arm pace bowler who currently plays for the Barbados Royals in the Caribbean Premier League, will join the Royals as a substitute for Ben Stokes. Oshane Thomas, 24, made his international debut against India in a bilateral ODI and T20I series in 2018. Thomas, who was named West Indies’ Emerging Player of the Year in 2019, has taken 27 wickets in 20 ODIs and 19 wickets in 17 T20Is since then. In the IPL, the feisty bowler picked up five wickets in four matches for the Royals in 2019, and he was also with the organisation during the 2020 season in the UAE.
