The West Indies cricket team has called up wicketkeeper Devon Thomas for the last two one-day internationals against New Zealand to replace Denesh Ramdin, who is getting married.

Thomas, 22, has so far played nine one-dayers and was in good form recently, making two half-centuries and taking 12 catches in the three-match series between West Indies A and India A.

The fourth and fifth one-dayers will be played at St Kitts' Warner Park on Sunday and Tuesday. West Indies lead the five-match series 2-1.

West Indies squad: Darren Sammy (capt), Dwayne Bravo, Tino Best, Johnson Charles, Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Ravi Rampaul, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons, Dwayne Smith, Devon Thomas
