West Indies Cricket Team

The T20 format is meant to be played the Caribbean way. It is a game filled with slam-bang hitting and electric fielding. The West Indies Cricket team is hence very successful in this format. It is the only team that has won the T20 world cup 2 times. They won their 1st ICC T20 World Cup in 2012, in Sri Lanka. The second win came in the 2016 ICC T20 World Cup which was held in India. The West Indies Cricket team is always filled with T20 superstars. So, what does the team shape up like before the ICC T20 World Cup? Here is an in-depth look:

Nicholas Pooran to lead the West Indies Cricket Team: 

Nicholas Pooran will be leading the West Indies Cricket Team for the first time in his career. The reason this gets a special mention is that Nicholas is relatively a less-experienced player. The team is filled with Superstars like Russell, Holder, Lendl Simmons, and Odean Smith. It will be a tough task for Nicholas to manage all these superstars. Kieron Pollard announced his international retirement and as a consequence, this role has been given to Nicholas Pooran.  

West Indies to Reach the Super 12s: 

The West Indies are expected to easily make it to the Super 12s. But to go a step further they will have to play out of their skins.
