Andre Russell,
Andre Russell,

Kolkata Knight Riders star all-rounder Andre Russell is yet to arrive for T20 World Cup as he has not played a big innings in both matches. With the ball as well he has failed to impress. Russell was suffering from a grade two hamstring tear in IPL 2021 and thus he did not feature in the latter half of the IPL. However, he got himself fit for West Indies’ opening matches of the T20 World Cup. In the first game, he was dismissed for 2 ball duck while in the second one he could only score 5 runs in 4 balls which includes a boundary. If the all-rounder delivers with the bat and ball West Indies can bounce back in grand fashion.

Evin Lewis

West Indies opening batsman, who plays for Rajasthan Royals in IPL, delivered with the bat in the last game where he hit an outstanding fifty to help Windies post a challenging total against South Africa. However, Evin Lewis will be now up against the experienced bowling lineup of Bangladesh and there will be the pressure of a do-or-die match as well. West Indies team will be counting on Lewis’ form and will want him to deliver in the next game as well.

Kieron Pollard
Kieron Pollard

West Indies captain Kieron Pollard was in top-notch form with the bat and with the ball during IPL 2021 playing for Mumbai Indians. However, so far he has not managed to score big for Windies in the first two matches. With DJ Bravo out of form with the ball and with the bat, Pollard needs to take more responsibility and play captain’s knock in the next game.
