Strengths Weaknesses
Explosive Batting – Top Order averaging 65.45 in 2019, the best for any side. The presence of Gayle, Russell & Hetmyer can change the course of the game very quickly.


Tearaway Fast Bowlers: West Indies have fast bowlers capable of hitting 150 kph regularly who can destroy the opposition on their day.

Poor Spin OptionsAshley Nurse, their lead spinner has a bowling average of 41.6 & poor SR of 46.9. Fabian Allen has just 1 wicket in 7 ODIs that he has played.



Lack of Experience in Middle Order: West Indies have talented batsman but lack some one capable of a calm head in the middle order who can play spin well. This means they can get stuck in the middle overs.


Opportunities Threats

Russell: Andre Russell comes into the World Cup with a stunning IPL campaign and will look to continue the form in the World Cup.

Unpredictable batting – Average just 27.15 post CWC 2015, with 71 50+ scores, the least for any World Cup side.
