Just before the deadline, West Indies have announced their World Cup squad which comprises of some sharp-witted cricketers who are eager to win the tournament and restore the lost pride of the country. Encompassing the likes of Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Nicholas Pooran and Andre Russell, the squad is full of game changers.
Contrary to the popular notion, former South African opening batsman Herschelle Gibbs feels that West Indies doesn’t have the unit to win the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament.
While he admits the quality of the power-hitting department of the bunch, the 45-year old is of the opinion that West Indies is having a one-dimensional squad where there is a dearth of accumulators.
In addition to that, the cricketer turned expert believes that the 15-man squad also fails to portray variety in their fast bowling ranks which were essential for a long and demanding tournament. However, the Cape Town born sees strength in their spin department. West Indies would commence their World Cup campaign against Pakistan on May 31.
