West Indies has added Miguel Cummins to its squad for the dead-rubber one-day international contest against England as a replacement for the injured Shannon Gabriel.

Paceman Gabriel sustained a left side strain during the second ODI in Antigua, which the Windies lost by four wickets to slip to a 2-0 deficit in the three-match series, and was restricted to bowling just three overs.

Cummins, who was named in an initial 15-man squad before that was trimmed to 13, is now in contention to play when West Indies attempts to salvage some pride from the third fixture in Bridgetown on Thursday.

The 26-year-old has played in two ODIs, the last of which came in November against Zimbabwe.
