Windies have some hard-hitting batsman who can change the fortunes of the team
West Indies is the most unpredictable side in the current World Cup. They can chase down mammoth totals or they can get all out on the lowest score. Most of the players in the team have the capability to hit sixes at will. With the likes of Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer they have the firepower to make big scores. Here we will look at top five players who can take West Indies to Semi-finals in the World Cup 2019.
Playing his last World Cup, he will look to make most of it. He is one player who can change the course the match in minutes. We don’t need to tell much about this guy. He has lots of experience with more than 10,000 runs and 25 centuries in ODI cricket.
The biggest and hardest hitter of the ball in the tournament Andre Russell can scare any team with his muscles. He has the ability to hit six on the very first ball, it’s just the composure he will need to work on for 50-over cricket.
Shai hope is the only man in the team who has the composure to stand still till the 50th over. He can dig out his team from critical situations and anchor the innings to give other batsmen a chance to play their natural game.
Gone are the days when batsman from all over the globe use to fear the West Indies bowlers but Oshane Thomas is one bowler who brings the memories of big-fast hard-hitting bowlers. Thomas is young, energetic and has the pace to put fear in batsman’s mind.
The captain of the West Indies has the all-around capability to take his team home. He can hit sixes and anchor the innings as well. He can come in the lower middle order and finish the match and bowl some quick overs to trouble the batsman.
