The West Indies team is the entirely different team when they switch from Test or ODI into t20 cricket. They recently won the world Cup held in India and are coming on the back of defeating the India in two matches t20 series, which they won by 1-0.
The captain is so, so is the team. Carlos Braithwaite will lead the team, and he has a bunch of new guys in the squad. The West Indies selector has axed Chris Gayle, and they showed their faith in the new guys like Evin Lewis.
This team has a mix of young and experienced players in the form of Marlon Samuels, Keiron Pollard, Evin Lewis, Andre Fletcher and Dwayne Bravo.
The bowling unit of this team will rely on the trio of Samuel Badree, Sunil Narine, and Dwayne Bravo. Meanwhile, Andre Russel has opted to miss this series due to his personal reason, and he is replaced by Kesrick Williams.
Williams has impressed with his all-around performance, and his hard work is paid worth as selector named him for the series, and there is a huge possibility that he will make his debut the same match.
