West Indies have made two changes to their squad for the third and fourth one-day internationals against England in Barbados.

WATCH the third ODI between West Indies and England live on Sky Sports 1 & HD1 from 1pm on Friday or log-on to skysports.com for over-by-over commentary.

With the five-match series locked at 1-1 heading to the Kensington Oval, the West Indies selectors have replaced Devon Smith and Daren Powell with Dale Richards and Ravi Rampaul respectively.

Uncapped opening batsman Richards comes in at the expense of left-hander Smith, who failed to make the starting XI in either of the first two matches in Guyana.

The 32-year-old Richards was selected in the Windies squad for the first Test against England in February but was forced to withdraw due to a foot injury.

Powell, who was dropped for the second ODI in Guyana, makes way for Trinidadian paceman Rampaul, 24, who prepares for his first taste of international cricket since February 2008 in Johannesburg.

West Indies: Chris Gayle (captain), Denesh Ramdin (vice captain), Lionel Baker, Dwayne Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Fidel Edwards, Nikita Miller, Kieron Pollard, Ravi Rampaul, Dale Richards, Darren Sammy, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Lendl Simmons.
