T20 World Cup: West Indies odds, fixtures, key players, T20 World Cup record

Co-hosts West Indies have amends to make at the ninth T20 World Cup this summer and will hope to use home advantage to aid their cause.

Two years ago, at the last finals, the Windies sank to a new low, losing to both Scotland and Ireland as they crashed out before the main group stage.

As two-time winners of the World Cup and with a history of calypso flair, that simply wasn’t good enough and Rovman Powell and his men are determined to put the record straight.

West Indies captain

Rovman Powell

Rovman Powell is an explosive batting all-rounder who announced himself as an international star with a 53-ball 107, including ten sixes, in a T20 win over England in 2022.

He captained Jamaica’s T20 and 50-over sides to regional titles last year and has played for Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals in the IPL.

West Indies key players

Nicholas Pooran

The Windies have no shortage of powerhouse middle-order batters with wicket-keeper Nicholas Pooran among the very best of them.

His career looked over after a serious car accident, but is now a key member of the side. Only Chris Gayle has clobbered more sixes in international T20s for the West Indies.

Andre Russell

Veteran Andre Russell is 36 now, but as a two-time world champion and IPL mainstay, he remains a critical part of the Windies’ make-up.

A destructive finisher these days, he boasts an international strike-rate of over 163 - only one other player (Suryakumar Yadav) who has won at least 50 caps, goes at a higher rate.

Johnson Charles

West Indies need runs from the off and evergreen opener Johnson Charles is one of the men entrusted with that role.

A 12-year T20 international veteran, he has been in and out of the side though last year’s 46-ball 118 against South Africa - the fastest by a West Indies player - cemented his place.

West Indies one to watch

Shamar Joseph

Right-arm quick Shamar Joseph did so well on Test debut against Australia over the winter that he was rewarded with a place in the Windies’ T20 World Cup squad - even though he had never played in that format for his country.

Peaking at speeds of 150kmh, the 24-year-old Guyanese will shake up a few batters over the coming weeks.

West Indies T20 World Cup prospects

West Indies have been through the mill with their flop at the last T20 World Cup and failure to qualify for the 2023 World Cup (50-over), so this group has a point to prove.

There is an explosive look to the batting line-up and enough variety in the bowling to make them a threat.

But those key fixtures against New Zealand and Afghanistan look tough and may well determine whether they even make it into the Super 8s and recent scars, combined with the pressure of playing at home, make them hard to fancy.
