ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Cricket West Indies’ (CWI) Selection Panel today announced the West Indies squad for the upcoming International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Men’s T20 World Cup. The panel confirmed the fifteen (15) players who represent the West Indies for the eighth ICC T20 World Cup, which will be played in Australia from October 16 to November 13. 

The West Indies are the only team to have won the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup twice, in Sri Lanka in 2012 and in India in 2016. The West Indies campaign to win an unprecedented third ICC Men’s T20 World Cup title starts on October 17, when they take on Scotland in first of three Group B fixtures played at the Bellerive Oval, in Hobart, Tasmania to qualify for the Super 12 phase of the tournament. Nicholas Pooran leads the West Indies in his first World Cup as captain, with Rovman Powell as vice-captain. 

Left-hand opening batter Evin Lewis has been recalled for the first time since the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup. Two uncapped players have been selected; right-arm leg-spinner allrounder Yannic Cariah and left-arm batting allrounder Raymon Reifer.

The Most Honourable Dr. Desmond Haynes, CWI’s Lead Selector said: “We have selected a mixture of youth and experience to represent the West Indies. In the selection process, we have been cognizant of the ongoing CPL and we have been looking at the players who have been playing very well. I said at the beginning of my tenure that I would be interested in giving players the opportunity and I think I have been consistent in doing that. I believe it is a very good team we have selected, and it is a team that will compete, given that we have to qualify from Round 1 into the Super12s.”

I would like the Sargent to tell us why Narine was not selected in view of what Dessie had to say.

Fletcher can get bogged down too easily.

So Charles is fine for me

The pick from left field for me was Cotterell
Notable omissions: Narine, Russell, Allen,
I would have included one of the three in place of Cotterell

Cotterell is probably a direct replacement for Shepherd.

How could there be justification for Evin Lewis who has not been playing cricket for some time versus Andre Russel who has been active in tournaments thru the year and not picked?

Also, Mr. Haynes since when Fabian Allen selection is only predicated on him being a left arm spinner? What about his batting and fielding?

Otherwise i wish them well.
Cariah is a gamble but I understand

I dont have a problem with the Cariah pick...it is just that we will lose the electric fielding of Walsh Jr

Think you answered your own question.

Cotty is lucky... he has become predictable and uninventive ...if the CPL is the latest version of him.

I am really happy to see Charles being selected. He more than deserves to be in the squad. I am surprised that Allen wasn't included but I am quite fine with Narine and Russell being left out. To walk back into the team just because it is World Cup time ain't cutting it for me. Thank you for the memories, it is time to move forward. Hopefully, Lewis can return to the form he was in prior to not representing the W.I. I believe in second chances and maybe he can settle into the team again. I am ok with Soldier Boy being in the squad. He is a wicket taker and is an asset to the team.

A little surprised at both Cotterell and Lewis, both in on reputation mainly and not recent performance. A little concerned that we do not have a back up keeper but I believe that Charles can take that role if needed. Pooran should prob try to keep for the rest of the CPL. Glad that they did not even consider Russell who is like Pollard and many full time professionals is definitely past it. All in all, the only change I would have made would be Motie or Allen for Cotterell as we have other seamers that are in better form to give us the extra spin option. I feel that there will be very little controversy about this squad

Picking Charles and Lewis over Brandon King?

Charles was picked on form and Lewis on past experience because clearly he not in any form?
