The ICC T20 World Cup will be held in the UAE and Oman from 17th October to 14th November. Preparation is on the high, and every team looks busy touring other cricketing countries to find the combination. The probable West Indies T20 World Cup Squad will consist of the following players. West Indies T20 Squad looks very threatening as it has every resource.
The most consistent team of the ICC World Cup events. West Indies won the ICC T20 World Cup Twice in 2012 and 2016. ICC T20 World Cup 2016 was the last one, and since then, there is no t20 world cup held for almost five years. So, the importance of the coming T20 World Cup can be determined from this factor as well.
Team West Indies is the most explosive and destructive team of ICC T20 World Cup. The team loves the short format of cricket. The team’s ranking is not that good, but looking at the players and the recent form of the team, we could easily consider West Indies one of the hot favorites of the World Cup 2021.
West Indies Team For T20 World Cup 2021
Lendl Simmons, Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Kieron Pollard (c), Andre Russell, Jason Holder, Dwayne Bravo, Hayden Walsh, Akeal Hosein, Fabian Allen, Sheldon Cottrell, Andre Fletcher, Kevin Sinclair.
The Top-order is having Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, and Andre Fletcher. All of them are explosive enough to change the complexion of the game in no time. Everyone knows the ability and experience of Chris Gayle. He has the ability to destroy any bowling attack with his belligerent batting.
West Indies T20 Squad has fantastic players that can bat at number. But, some batsmen can still steady the ship with their solid batting techniques, Dwayne Bravo, Lendl Simmons, Nicholas Pooran, and Fidel Edwards. All of them can use long handles when needed.
Destructive Lower Order
The Lower order of the team is the main strength. There is no other team in the coming T20 World Cup 2021 with a blistering, dynamic, and hard-hitting lower order. Kieron Pollard, the team captain, can destroy any team with his batting and be handy with the bowling.
Andre Russell, the most dynamic cricketer of the modern-day era. He can hit six sixes on six consecutive balls. Bowlers feel dejected bowling him. Chris Gayle, Karion Pollard, and Andre Russell are the key players.
