West Indies have added Ramnaresh Sarwan to their squad for the fourth one-day international against Pakistan in an effort to boost their misfiring batting line-up.

Sarwan replaces Devon Smith in the hosts' 13-man squad for the match in Barbados, which is followed three days later by the series finale in Guyana.

The 30-year-old, who averages 43.20 in 166 ODIs, was dropped after a disappointing World Cup along with fellow experienced campaigners Chris Gayle and Shivnarine Chanderpaul.

That was part of a youth movement from the West Indies Cricket Board but, after three woeful batting displays against Pakistan to fall 3-0 down in the five-match series, there has been an about turn.

West Indies squad: Darren Sammy (capt), Dwayne Bravo, Carlton Baugh (wkt), Devendra Bishoo, Darren Bravo, Kirk Edwards, Anthony Martin, Ravi Rampaul, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons
