Charles, 27, has been brought in after Bravo declined to sign the remuneration contract by last Sunday's deadline, opting instead to focus on the longer formats of the sport.

Charles, a top order batsman, was part of the West Indies team that won the 2012 World Twenty20, though he made a duck in the final against Sri Lanka.

He has played 23 Twenty20 internationals, scoring 463 runs at an average of just over 21, with a strike-rate of 114.

The World Twenty20, to be played in India, starts on 8 March. West Indies have been drawn in the same group as England, South Africa, Sri Lanka and a qualifier.
