West Indies Cricket Team – Profile
West Indies cricket team has already won two cricket World Cups in 1975 (opening World Cup) and 1979. But, current team does not stand anywhere in comparison to those teams. Even though the current West Indies team can surely challenge the teams, but they are less likely to win World Cup 2015. The skipper Chris Gayle is a key point for the team who can score quickly and can turn match on his own. Ramnaresh Sarwan and Shivnaraine Chanderpaul are two other batsmen who can score easy runs. Dwayne Bravo is a very good all rounder who can score runs as well as can take wickets. Dinesh Ramdin is a very good wicket-keeper and can score some runs too. The bowling attack is headed by Fidel Edwards and Kemar Roach is a new prospect who has impressed many with his bowling skills.
West Indies is standing at 8th place in the ICC rankings for the One-Day Internationals. Sometime back,they faced the issue of contracts and due to that reason, they had to send their second string team to play against Bangladesh and West Indies lost Test as well as One Day series. This loss has cost too much to the West Indies cricket team and except Chris Gayle, nobody has shown consistency after return. West Indies won the ICC T20 championship in 2012 but the inconsistent performance has left West Indies pretty much a lagging team. But let’s hope for the best for West Indies in 2015 ICC Championship.
