Don’t write off this West Indies team yet! Their recent one-day international form isn’t anything to swoon over, but with a full-strength team at their disposal, this Windies squad led by Jason Holder will hope to send a message at the ICC World Cup 2019.

Holder’s men enter the showpiece event with mixed fortunes. While they trounced hosts Ireland in each of their two games in the tri-series, they were outclassed on all three occasions by Bangladesh, including in the final. However, they were not playing their main players in that series – likes of Chris Gayle, Andre Russell and Nicholas Pooran – among others who were absent. With them back in the fold, Windies look a lot more well-rounded outfit.

World Cup record: P 74, W 42, L 30, T 0, NR 2
