West Indies Name Their 15 man Squad for T20 World Cup

Share This Post

The West Indies have named left-handed opener Evin Lewis to their 15-man squad for the Men’s T20 World Cup in 2022. Yannic Cariah, right-arm leg-spinner, and Raymon Reifer, left-arm leg-spinner, are the team’s two uncapped players (left-arm batting allrounder). T20 veterans Andre Russell and Sunil Narine, on the other hand, have been ruled out.

Lewis Makes His Comeback

Lewis, 30, has been unable to play for the West Indies since the T20 World Cup last year due to physical issues.

Cariah, 30, made his debut for Trinidad & Tobago and the Trinbago Knight Riders in One-Day Internationals last month. Reifer, the son of former West Indies captain Floyd Reifer, is 31 years old and made his international debut for the West Indies in 2017, playing Tests and ODIs.

Nicholas Pooran has been named as captain of the squad, while Rovman Powell will be his deputy.

Here is what the selectors

“We have selected a combination of young and experienced players to represent the West Indies,” said CWI Chief Selector Desmond Haynes. ” We were aware of the ongoing CPL during the selection process and assessed the guys who have been playing particularly well. I stated at the start of my tenure that I was interested in giving players opportunities, and I believe I have been consistent in doing so. Given that we must qualify from Round 1 to advance to the Super12s, I believe we have assembled a strong squad.

“There are players who did not make the team, and I hope they continue to work hard and perform to the best of their abilities in the CPL and the upcoming CG United Super50 Cup, because you never know what might happen in the event of injuries or other unforeseen circumstances that require us to call up replacement players.”
