Gabriel has since accepted a four-match ban handed down by the International Cricket Council for breaching its code of conduct by using "language of a personal, insulting, obscene and/or offensive nature".
Gabriel was warned by the on-field umpires, Rod Tucker and Kumar Dharmasena, for using abusive language during the third day of the third test in St Lucia.
At the time of the West Indies' squad being announced, chairman of selectors Courtney Browne said: "Shannon Gabriel remains very much in our World Cup plans but with a heavy workload expected in the Test series he will be considered for selection later in the ODI series".
Following captain Jason Holder's one-match Test ban for his team's second Test slow over rate, fiery fast bowler Shannon Gabriel has been controversially slapped with a four-match one-day worldwide suspension by cricket's world governing body, the ICC, after being found guilty of player abuse.
TV footage from a recent test match between England and the West Indes has been shared over social media after England player Joe Root was heard scolding a player from the opposing team for the language he used. "There's nothing wrong with being gay".
Speaking after the day's play, Root was keen to move on from the incident but conceded Gabriel might regret his actions.
Root would not say after stumps what had been said.
"West Indies have played some fantastic cricket, they are a good bunch of guys and it would be a shame if it tarnishes it".
"That battle was a good contest, he's had a wonderful series and he should be proud".
"The more players, fans, clubs and organisations that stand up for equality in sport, the sooner we kick discrimination out and make sport everyone's game". Which is exactly what England captain Joe Root did. Ms Davies said on her Twitter account.
"I recognize now that I was attempting to break through my own tension when I said to Joe Root: 'Why are you smiling at me?"
Former England cricket captain Nasser Hussain also praised Root, who was eventually bowled out by Gabriel after scoring 122 runs-more than any of his teammates.
There was also praise for Root from worldwide rugby referee Nigel Owens who came out in 2007.
