Cricket West Indies have named a 15-member  squad for the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022 set to begin in Australia next month. While Nicholas Pooran has been named the skipper of the 15-member contingent, Rovman Powell has been named his deputy.

“We have selected a mixture of youth and experience to represent the West Indies. In the selection process, we have been cognizant of the ongoing CPL and we have been looking at the players who have been playing very well,” Desmond Haynes, CWI’s Lead Selector stated as per an official release.

"I said at the beginning of my tenure that I would be interested in giving players the opportunity and I think I have been consistent in doing that. I believe it is a very good team we have selected, and it is a team that will compete, given that we have to qualify from Round 1 into the Super12s,” Haynes added.

“There are players who did not make the team and I hope they will continue to work hard and perform to their best in the CPL and the upcoming CG United Super50 Cup; because you never know what can happen in case of injuries or any other unforeseen situations where we might need to call up players as replacements,” he further said.

Notably, Evin Lewis has earned a call-up for the first time since the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Meanwhile, two uncapped players in Yannic Cariah and Raymon Reifer have found a place in the Caribbean squad. However, there is no Sunil Narine or Andre Russell in the team.

West Indies' squad for T20 World Cup 2022:


Nicholas Pooran (captain), Rovman Powell (vice-captain),  Yannic Cariah, Johnson Charles, Sheldon  Cottrell, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein,  Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Evin  Lewis,  Kyle Mayers , Obed McCoy, Raymon Reifer and Odean Smith.
