Share this article

Jason Holder to captain as we look at the World Cup 2019 squad of West Indies.

The team filled with champion players, West Indies are excellent in the shortest format of the game. However, the 50 over format has often yielded unfruitful results for them since 1979. 

Coming to  World Cup 2019, the squad chosen to represent the Windies is a fairly inexperienced one but the magnitude of talent present in them is certainly the thing to watch out for.

So, let’s have a quick overview of West Indies’ 15 member squad for World Cup 2019

Team West Indies’s Squad for World Cup 2019:

Jason Holder (c), Evin Lewis, Darren Bravo, Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Nicholas Pooran, Oshane Thomas, Shai Hope (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Fabien Allen, Sheldon Cottrell, Shannon Gabriel, Kemar Roach, Ashley Nurse

CONCLUSION:

A clarity regarding each individual’s role in the team would be crucial for this team to succeed. This is purely because of the presence of players who on their day can single-handedly win matches.  Anything less than a semi-final finish would be highly disappointing.

We wish the West Indies squad all the very best for World Cup 2019.
