Team West Indies
West Indies are entering in to the cricket world cup 2015 as an experienced side. Senior player Darren Bravo and Kieron Pollard are missing. Mystery Spinner Sunil Narine also opted out of this mega event due to bowling action, about which he was not fully confident off. Experienced players like Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels and Darren Sammy are their main strengths. Gayle and Sammy are known for their power horse batting, Samuel can handle in pressure situations with ball too. Inconsistency has been a big worry to their team. In bowling Kemar Roach and Jerom Taylor will lead from the front with Andrew Russel’s all round capabilities.
