West Indies has revealed their 15-men team for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in 2024 which will be hosted by United States and West Indies in June.

After being selected for the T20 World Cup squad, Shamar Joseph, who made an impression in his Test debut series against Australia earlier this year, is about to make his T20I debut.

After missing the T20I series against Australia, Shimron Hetmyer returns. With the Rajasthan Royals in the present Indian Premier League, he has been in fine form, amassing 83 runs with a strike rate of 184.44 in four innings while filling in as the finisher.

Windies skipped Kyle Mayers, a member of the team during the Australia series, in favor of a lower-order batsman rather than an opener. Oshane Thomas, the pacer, has also been excluded from the team.

Shai Hope, Brandon King, and Johnson Charles are anticipated to occupy the top-order slots. With players like Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Shimron Hetmyer, Powell, Jason Holder, Sherfane Rutherford, and Romario Shepherd among their many big hitters and all-rounders, the Windies have a wealth of alternatives.

The spin-bowling team consists of Gudakesh Motie and Akeal Hossain, while vice-captain Joseph will lead the pace battery with Joseph’s assistance.

Squad: Rovman Powell (c), Alzarri Joseph, Johnson Charles, Roston Chase, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Shai Hope, Akeal Hosein, Shamar Joseph, Brandon King, Gudakesh Motie, Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Sherfane Rutherford, Romario Shepherd.
