Gayle in Windies squads to play Ireland

Three of the leading West Indies cricketers, Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy and Marlon Samuels have been recalled for the limited-overs matches against Ireland starting next week.
Gayle returns to the regional side after missing the New Zealand tour due to a hamstring injury.
Sammy and Samuels also make comebacks after recovering from injuries which forced them to miss the limited-overs leg during the New Zealand tour.
Uncapped 23-year-old fast bowler Miguel Cummins was named in the ODI squad while Ravi Rampaul was only included in the T20 squad.
Rampaul returned home from the New Zealand tour after sustaining a thumb injury and missing the last two ODIs and both T20s.
Tino Best, Johnson Charles, Narsingh Deonarine and Chadwick Walton were dropped from both squads on the heels of poor form in New Zealand.
Allrounder Kieron Pollard was not considered due to the knee injury he sustained last year. He is continuing his rehabilitation.
Krishmar Santokie and Dwayne Smith were recalled to the T20 squad, in place of Nikita Miller and Kieran Powell.
West Indies will host Ireland in two T20s and one ODI. The first T20 is on February 19 in Kingston, Jamaica.

ODI squad: Dwayne Bravo (captain), Darren Bravo, Miguel Cummins, Kirk Edwards, Chris Gayle, Jason Holder, Nikita Miller, Sunil Narine, Kieron Powell, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Marlon Samuels, Darren Sammy, Lendl Simmons.
T20 squad: Darren Sammy (captain), Samuel Badree, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Fletcher, Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Denesh Ramdin, Ravi Rampaul, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Krishmar Santokie, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith.
