11. Sheldon Cottrell
Sheldon Cottrell has been in and out of the team since his debut in 2014. As the likes of Oshane Thomas, Dre Russ did the job of the fast bowler, his services were not usually required. But, since the past few series, he has been able to make it to the playing eleven regularly.
10. Hayden Walsh
Hayden Walsh made his CPL debut in 2018 under Chris Gayle. With the game evolving every year, he has adapted to the T20 conditions with ease. His bowling efforts attracted the attention of the selectors and he is now being given more chances on the national side. Adding on, he is a decent lower-order batsman as well.
9. Dwayne Bravo
Dwayne Bravo is a street-smart cricketer and everyone expects him to perform exceedingly well. The strike rate is on the lower side only because he rarely gets to bat, thanks to a strong West Indies lineup. Bravo is street smart cricket and hence, he can bowl at any stage of the game.
8. Fabian Allen
Fabian Allen made it to the headlines after he took a screamer during the CPL in 2017. During that season, Allen went on to score three half-centuries for his team. Later on, his solid performances in the domestic tournaments enabled him to make it to the squad. And this year too, he made his IPL debut against SRH.
7. Kieron Pollard (C)
Kieron Pollard is a well-known name in the T20 format. Over the years, he has grown as a player along with Mumbai Indians and in the upcoming World Cup, he is the captain of the side. A clever bowler and a terrific fielder, Pollard has this ability to take his time and clear the fence even with a mishit.
6. Jason Holder
He has some IPL experience behind him as well. With so many power-hitters and wicket-takers in the side, Holder is a clever bowler who can adapt to the conditions as well. In 19 IPL games, he has picked 22 wickets and he can bowl at any stage of the game.
5. Andre Russell
Andre Russell’s ability with the bat and ball can be measured from the fact that he was the MVP of the 2015 IPL. He can tear apart any bowling lineup for fun and his efforts during the 2016 ICC T20 World Cup semi-final are the prime example. Russell is the key all-rounder in this lineup as he is the one who can create the pace if needed.
4. Nicholas Pooran(W)
The most astonishing fact about this West Indies team is its depth. Even if one fails, the next one in the lineup will step up to the occasion. With three big names in the top order, the next big thing in Windies cricket is holding up to the number four position.
3. Chris Gayle
This list would have been incomplete without the presence of Chris Gayle. Since its introduction, T20 cricket has been characterized by Gayle. Over the years, this man has entertained fans and has given them some wonderful moments to cherish. This time too, he makes it to the T20 World Cup.
2. Evin Lewis
Evin Lewis belongs to an elite group of batsmen with more than a single century in the shortest format of the game. He is a powerful left-handed batsman who can smash sixes at will. Adding on, a left-right combination at the top of the order makes it even more effective for the team.
1. Lendl Simmons
Lendl Simmons has been in the international circuit for quite some time now. At 36 years of age, he still has some cricket left in him. For the West Indies, he has been a regular member of their squad. Simmons has been the match-winner for the Windies over the years. When other batsmen fail, he stands up.
