Today, West Indies will take on Pakistan at the Trent Bridge stadium. The West Indian power hitters will be a major threat to the exceptional bowling of the Pakistan cricket team. 

Let’s have a look at these 3 key West Indian players who will play a major role in the team’s victories throughout the tournament.

 

1.      Shai Hope- By smashing a splendid century in the team’s second warm-up match against New Zealand, Shai Hope has definitely made his mark in the team. He averages 51.06 in ODI and it includes 10 fifties and 6 centuries. His batting performance can destroy the bowling line-up of any team in the tournament.

2.      Carlos Brathwaite- The biggest take-away from the warm-up matches for the West Indian cricket team was the form of Carlos Brathwaite. This all-rounder managed to pick up 3 wickets against New Zealand with an economy of 8.33. Carlos is an add-on to the West Indian team with both his batting and exceptional bowling. His all-round ability makes him a versatile player for the tournament.

 

3.     Andre Russell- With 65 wickets in his 52 ODI matches, this West Indian all-rounder can be the game changer for the team. Russell had a stellar performance in the second warm-up game against the NZ where he smashed 54 runs off just 25 deliveries with a strike rate of 216. The key factor would however be his bowling along with his exceptional power hitting performance.
