West Indies named four uncapped players, including Australian-born Brendon Nash, for the Test leg of their tour to New Zealand.
All-rounder Nash represents Jamaica in West Indies' first-class competition having previously played for Queensland.
The 30-year-old averages 30.78 in 36 first-class matches and is also a useful left-arm medium pacer and an excellent fielder. He qualifies to play for West Indies courtesy of his Jamaican parentage.
Pacemen Lionel Baker and Kemar Roach and batsman Leon Johnson are the other new faces named for the two Tests against the Black Caps in Dunedin (Dec 11-15) and Napier (Dec 19-23).
Opening batsman Chris Gayle has been retained as captain with Ramnaresh Sarwan again acting as his deputy.
"The New Zealand series will be hard fought," predicted West Indies coach John Dyson.
"New Zealand are ranked one place higher (seventh) than us and a series win might see West Indies overtake New Zealand.
"Like all top teams, we will be looking for strong performances from our experienced senior players."
The selectors also named a squad for the three-match one-day international series against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi in November.
The party to play the Twenty20 and one-day internationals that follow the Test series in New Zealand will be named later.
