Barbodos: West Indies announced their 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022, with Evin Lewis making a return to the squad for the first time since the 2021 event in UAE.
Evin Lewis returned as West Indies named their squad of 15 players for the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022. The squad also has two uncapped players in Yannic Cariah and Raymon Reifer.
A surprise inclusion in the squad is Johnson Charles, who last played a T20I in 2016.
T20 World Cup squad:
Nicholas Pooran (c), Rovman Powell, Yannic Cariah, Johnson Charles, Sheldon Cottrell, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Evin Lewis, Kyle Mayers, Obed Mccoy, Raymon Reifer, Odean Smith
Cariah, who recently made his ODI debut, was preferred over Hayden Walsh as the leg-spinner in the squad.
There was no place for Andre Russell or Fabian Allen, both of whom played the 2021 ICC Men's T20 World Cup in UAE with the lead selector clarifying that Russell was dropped.
