WICB has announced 15 Players of West Indies cricket team squad for ICC World T20 2016 to be held in India from 8 March to 3 April. The issues between top West Indies players and WICB has not affected the selection procedure.
The team is on 2 position after Indian team which is on the top of the ranking table. West Indies team is in Group A which also includes Sri Lanka, England, South Africa and another team which will be selected qualifying matches & the points table.
WI were the Champions in 2012 and reached to semifinals of World T20 in 2014. With a great combination of star batsmen, bowlers and all-rounder, who have the ability to change the cricket match in few overs, WI will give a tough competition to its opponent in T20 World cup 2016. Though the team is very much capable of winning the championship, but inconsistency in the performance is the main weakness of the west Indies team squad. If WI players overcame their inconstancy then they have the fair chance to add one more trophy into their account.
West Indies squad will ground on the tournament with the return of its star players like Chris Gayle, Russel, Sammy, Bravo and Pollard.
