Windies dominated the World Cup in the first three editions where they made it to the finals and won two titles but have fallen far from replicating it. The best the Caribbean side performed in the previous eight ODI World Cups was reaching the semis in 1996. The last couple of years have been tough for them as they had to play the Qualifiers to get into the main tournament. However, their power-packed batting line-up is something which could lift them in the mega tournament.
All the major approaching player milestones of the Caribbean team to look out for at the World Cup:
49 – Ashley Nurse needs one more wicket to complete 50 wickets in ODI cricket. The off-spinner has claimed 49 wickets in 50 ODIs at an average of 41.61 with two 4-wicket hauls.
95 – The 5th game at this World Cup will be the 100th ODI appearance for the Windies captain Jason Holder. The keeper-batsman Shai Hope will also complete 100 International appearances for the Caribbean team in the 5th match at this tournament.
447 – Chris Gayle will become the most capped International cricketer for the Windies if he features in at least eight more games. Gayle will surpass Shivnarine Chanderpaul in this process who represented his country in 454 matches.
Gayle will also become the most capped ODI player for the Windies by surpassing Brian Lara (295). The opener featured in 286 Internationals for them and needs ten more appearances to top the list.
998 – Andre Russell needs two more runs to reach 1000 runs in the ODI format. Russell will be the 11th player with 1000+ runs and 50+ wickets in ODIs for the Windies when he scores those two runs.
2820 – Darren Bravo needs 180 runs to complete 3000 runs in ODI cricket. As many as 11 players scored 3000+ ODI runs for the Windies but none of them debuted in the 21st century.
Among the players who debuted for the Windies after 2001, Darren’s elder brother Dwayne Bravo (2968) has scored the most ODI runs but has retired from International cricket.
3892 – Shai Hope needs 108 more runs to get past 4000 runs in International cricket. He recently completed 2000 runs in ODI cricket and became the fastest to the milestone among the Windies players.
18937 – Chris Gayle needs 63 more runs to become the 3rd player to score 19000 runs in International cricket for the Windies. Gayle, in fact, scored 18992 runs in Internationals so far which includes 55 runs he scored in the 3-match Super Series for ICC World XI against Australia.
