Star all-rounders Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine have failed to make a place in the final West Indies squad announced for the World Cup. The surprising omissions have cast a doubtful look on the Caribbean squad, which nevertheless is packed with explosive hitters of the cricketing ball.
Modern day great Chris Gayle, aged 39, has been called up once again marking his fifth World Cup appearance – a special feat for the ‘Universe Boss’. Meanwhile, ace all-rounder Andre Russell has made a comeback to the side, which will provide a major boost to West Indies given his current extravagant form in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Pollard and Narine have not been part of the ODI setup since 2016, however, they have been great servants of Windies cricket for an extended period of time. Recently, it came to the fore that Narine had been having problems in his bowling finger, rendering him out of the tournament for England and Wales.
Young inspirational skipper Jason Holder will be serving as the leader of the side, and hopes to overturn the fortunes of the West Indies cricket team.
