West Indies has been a blessing the cricketing world, they are one of the reasons why Cricket spread like a fever in the world of cricket. They were the trend-setters, and what they’ve done for cricket in utterly priceless.
They ruled the world of cricket but now they have completely lost their status but in shorter format they are still the most underrated team in the world. They have been producing match winners consistently and they are ruling the foreign leagues.
This time they have excluded many of their star players and they have preferred consistency over stardom and players like Pollard, Narine and Bravo have been left out from their world cup squad.
Here we have three most important players from West Indies’ loft.
4. Carlos Brathwaite
We all saw what he did in the T20 world Cup, we all are well aware of his capabilities. He has every shot in his arsenal and he can also be a very handy bowler sometimes. He can steal the game in seconds from your hands and on his day, West Indies become untouchable.
3. Shimron Hetmyer
Hetmyer is the new big thing in the cricketing world, he’s been brilliant since his debut for the Maroon army. Hetmyer has scored 4 centuries and 2 half centuries in the 24 innings for West Indies. He’s a pure match winner, he can stay at the crease and he can also hit the ball a long way when needed. That a built-in feature in the Islanders thou.
2. Andre Russel
Andre Russel is considered as the most dangerous players the world has ever seen. He is the best hitter in the world right now, the KKR powerhouse can hit any ball anywhere in the ground. Not only that, he is also lightning fast when it comes to bowling. And cherry on the top is that he is also one of the finest fielders in the world right now.
1. Chris Gayle
Just like wine, he is getting more dangerous day by day. Yes, he saw a rough patch but we all know he is a fighter by birth and that is why he is again the most feared opener in the world. He’s done it several times and he is ready to do this again, and this will be his last opportunity to win his country the biggest prize of all.
Gayle has scored 7215 runs in 182 innings with an average of 38, 25 centuries and 51 half centuries but we all know he is much more dangerous that what his stats tell.
