Its time to unveil the West Indies Team Squad ICC T20 World Cup 2016. Having previously won the T20 World Cup Trophy in 2012, West Indies will look to add another of it in their trophy cabinet. With the likes of Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Darren Sammy and Marlon Samuels, it would be a plus point for both the team and the fans, who would be expecting an exciting and action-packed campaign from West Indies.
Under the expected captaincy of Jason Holder, who also captained this year’s World Cup squad, it would be a thing to watch whether the team could carry the same zeal in them, or disappointed with their performance, this time. It is likely that the team would probably come with the same squad as of the World Cup. A look at the West Indies Team Squad ICC T20 World Cup 2016:

West Indies Team’s Strengths for ICC T20 World Cup 2016
Much of the team’s strength lies in the duo of Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels, the same duo which single-handedly took the entire team to the door of victories in various matches in the World Cup. All-rounder Andre Russell, the equivalent of James Faulkner of Australia, could also prove as one of the strongest link to the team due to his ability to excel in both the departments (batting and bowling).
Team’s Weaknesses for ICC T20 World Cup 2016
Team’s inability to hold the opposing batsmen in the last few overs could lead the team to the path of defeats. Owing to the lack of squad depth and experience of winning matches, it would be tough for the men in maroon to lead the team to the winning ways with ease.
West Indies Key Players for ICC T20 World Cup 2016
Batting: Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels, Darren Sammy, Darren Bravo, and Andre Russell. Bowling: Jason Holder, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell. With no Sunil Narine, it’d be interesting to watch, how the team comes to perform in this tournament. With many of the players, playing in the IPL, the Indian pitch may be quite easy for them. Though, they are a team that no one can rule out of the competition easily.
